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.”
