EAST London-born surfing star Roseanne Hodge is starring in a surfing biopic, The Perfect Wave.
The straight-to-TV film, which is scheduled for release next year, was shot in Jeffreys Bay, St Francis, Bali and Java.
It is directed by South African Bruce Macdonald and features some big-name stars including Academy award-winning director and actor Clint Eastwood's son Scott, former Charlie's Angel and Las Vegas actress Cheryl Ladd, and newcomer Rachel Hendrix.
Perfect Wave is based on the true story of New Zealand-born surfer Ian McCormack and tells of his search for the perfect wave and his subsequent spiritual awakening after getting stung by jellyfish. He was pronounced dead at a Mauritius hospital, but woke up in a morgue.
The movie dramatises McCormack's supernatural experience as told from one surfer to another.
Scott plays McCormack in the lead role while Ladd plays the role of his mother.
Scott is no stranger to filming in South Africa, after he appeared as Joel Stransky in his father's inspirational biographical sports drama, Invictus.
In The Perfect Wave, Hodge plays South African surfer Roxy, who is dating McCormack's friend Mark who has found faith through her.
The film is Hodge's second credited role after receiving her break as surfer Catherine in Blue Crush 2.
She is based in California for most of the year, working for Roxy Quicksilver while still surfing in the ASP second division.
