An Interview with Sadie Robertson of ‘God’s Not Dead 2’

Ratio Christi

Sadie Robertson plays “Marlene” in the riveting God’s Not Dead 2, opening this Friday, April 1. “Marlene” is the best friend of the main high school character, “Brooke.”

We are excited to share an interview we did with Sadie prior to the opening. But first, please make plans to see this sequel to God’s Not Dead! For that matter, if you haven’t seen the original, run to rent it … now. The first movie surprised numerous naysayers and critics by its amazing box office and rental success in 2014.

Both movies are important to audiences that value religious free speech in American society. The fictional situations are based on real-life incidents and court cases, as is illustrated by the long lists of actual lawsuits that run at the end of the films.

Robertson, 18, is a member of the Duck Dynasty family featured on the A&E TV series. But she is her own accomplished person and a young lady of prolific talents.

Robertson attends Ouachita Christian Academy in Monroe, Louisiana where she wore jersey #15 for the girls’ basketball team in her sophomore and junior year. Her team stats appear on many high school sports statistics websites. In conjunction with fashion designer Sherri Hill, she designs clothes under the label “Live Original” that encourage a stylish yet modest wardrobe for teen girls. The clothing line uses the same title as Robertson’s popular book, Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values (Howard Books, 2014).

She sang with country star Alison Krauss for her family’s album, “Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas” (2013).

The following year she moved from singing to dancing and took Second Place with professional dance partner Mark Ballas on Season 19 of “Dancing with the Stars” despite remaining modestly costumed and insisting on dance routines that were not as “sexy” as many on the reality show.

Then came the big offer to appear in the movie God’s Not Dead 2. That’s where our interview comes in…
