Yes I know she had 7 knockdowns including a roll-over however how it was depicted in the movie just beggared belief.Jessica responded to that scene - and others in the movie -quite straightforwardly in an interview. The roll did happen and 6 other knockdowns as well. She was very clear that it actually lasted a much shorter time than shown in the movie - just seconds - but said that the duration in the movie was what it felt like at the time.
She also said that the frying pan incident was entirely made up, but she definitely should have kept the cabin "much tidier". And that she was never becalmed for a week as in the movie, just a day or two, but being becalmed was in fact very stressful.
Mostly she said that the actress seemed to catch her personality quite well.
I actually played a small part in her journey when she was approaching Albany. There was quite a thunderstorm on and offshore and she didn't answer any calls from her support crew and they were worried the boat had been struck by lightning and knocked out comms and for some reason they contacted me for some local knowledge if she needed to be rescued.
Turned out she was just asleep.
