Biography

Olivier award winning Sophie has had recent roles in Feel Good on Channel 4 and was in Present Laughter at the Old Vic in 2019.

 

Sophie on BOVTS, “I had my heart utterly set on going to the BOVTS & my joy at getting a place knew no bounds. In my day it was just two plump crumbly houses knocked together. Not a ‘facility’ in sight save a large mirror in the basement room, a pay phone under the stairs and a vending machine in the smokey blue linoleumed green room. We had to turn up equipped with a cloak, some character shoes and the then ubiquitous leg warmer. It was perfect.”

The training provided by the MFA programme is superb. The depth with which we explore, paired with unyielding curiosity that is met with the most knowledgeable, passionate, expert tutors is what makes BOVTS programme one of the finest around. I feel honoured to call BOVTS my grad school. Rachel McVay, MA Professional Acting Student
