Acting ambitions from a young age

Sophia joined the Emmerdale cast when she was very young, but she knew that as a little girl she wanted to get into acting and had to be professional.

She said, “From a young age I understood that this is what I wanted to do with my career and, despite my age, I had to remain professional to be successful.

“I always enjoyed when my scripts were sent to my house and I sat down with my mom to arrange them into the scenes I was in and what I needed to learn.

She added, “I knew everything on set wasn’t real life, but I had to pretend that my character was portrayed as best as possible.

“I loved every moment I had on screen with the cast and crew. I am very grateful that I was cast in the role of Sarah for a long time. “
