Biography

Sophie has been described by a theatre critic as an ‘’attractive and talented’’ actress.

 

Her experience spans the entire spectrum of theatre, supporting roles on both film and TV, as well as a number of commercials, audio readings and voiceovers. She is also an experienced role play actor.

 

She has been cast in a variety of diverse parts - from fragile classical English roses, murderous regency prostitutes, and god abiding Quaker campaigners to ambitious corporate women willing to risk all.

 

Sophie’s first professional theatre job was as an ASM at Southwold Summer Theatre, under the nurturing guidance of Jill Freud, when she was 18.

 

She attended The Oxford School of Drama after that Rep season, appearing in a show they produced and took to the Edinburgh Festival the following year and subsequently trained under Vivienne Guignard  and then, briefly, with Dorothy Tutin. 

 

She went from here to cut her teeth in further productions in  Rep,  the London and Edinburgh fringes and anything else she could be involved in to gain her Equity card.

 

She has been fortunate enough to have been in features directed by Paul Greengrass, Jonathan Gershfield and Tim Burton as well as some incredibly talented up and coming directors, writers, producers, editors and DoP’s.

 

She is involved in several writing initiatives in London including The Society  of Women Writers and Journalists.

 

She is a regular member of  cast with Actors and Writers London and their bi-monthly rehearsed readings in West London.

 

She is also regular reader for Liars' League, an international new writing short-story initiative based in London with groups in LA, Hong Kong, and New York.

 

She has recorded several short stories for  Liars' League's series of podcasts and live events and performed with their company at the Wildness Festival.

 

Sophie was born in Colchester and raised in East Anglia. She now lives in West London with her two dogs.

 

She is delightful, beautiful,  warm and charming, with a wonderful sense of humour:  Fun and intelligent to work with and totally committed to all the projects she works on.

 

She feels very privileged to do a job she absolutely loves.

 

‘’Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
