    About me

    Sophia is an OFFIE Award Winning actress based in London. Her first debut film appearance was in the Blaine Brothers' The Death of the Revolution when she was just ten. The film went on to premiere at Cannes and other international festivals.

    Sophia later trained at Rose Bruford College in the UK and The Estonian Academy of Music & Dramatic Arts and received training in screen acting, physical theatre and stunt work.

    Sophia is currently working across British and American television drama as well as feature films, theatre, commercials and voice over and is developing her skill sets in creature performance and motion capture.

    Since her breakthrough TV role in the FOX series: Tyrant, Sophia has developed a penchant for playing the 'bad guy', recently featuring as a series regular in British fantasy series Whatever After alongside Jessica Brown Finlay as the twisted seductress Kewpid.
