Actress ambitions from a young age

Sophia joined the Emmerdale cast when she was still very young, however she knew from being a little girl she wanted to pursue acting and needed to be professional.

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

“I always enjoyed my scripts being posted to my house and sitting down with my mum arranging them into what scenes I was in and what I needed to learn.

She added: “I knew everything on set wasn’t real life, but I needed to pretend that it was so my character was portrayed the best I could.

“I loved every moment I had on-screen with the cast and crew. I’m very grateful for being cast for the role of Sarah for a long period of time.”

Sophia talks about her memories from Emmerdale
