To prepare for the part, she says, “They told me I had the role and the next day, they had me everyday with a surf trainer.”
Mitchell adds, “Then [I had] a personal trainer for body strength because I couldn’t even do a push-up. I couldn’t even get up on the board.”

The Fosters star, who grew up listening to singer-songwriters and playing acoustic guitar, says it was a learning experience to record a different kind of musical genre. “I never thought I would be recording on any professional level so to be doing a rockabilly, Motown, pop soundtrack in a L.A. studio was completely bizarre and amazing,” Mitchell says about recording songs for the Disney Channel TV musical.
With the film set in Puerto Rico, Mitchell says the scenic environment made her experience of filming on the island all the more memorable.

“We shot so much of the film outside so what you see is what you get,” says the actress. “We were by the beach everyday. It looks like a green screen because it’s ridiculously stunning. We were always saying that, ‘This is not real. This is a backdrop.’”
