This (tiny) picture shows Sophia Myles talking to the (now) married couple Alessandro Nivola and Emily Mortimer during the 16th Annual BAFTA/LA’s Garden Party on June 27, 2002, which makes this the currently earliest picture of Sophia Myles attending a public event in our gallery (until now this spot had been occupied by The Abuction Club’ Premiere on July 16, 2002).
This garden party was hosted by then recently appointed British Consul General Peter Hunt and his wife, Anne at their home in Hancock Park. The evening’s silent auction and raffle raised money for BAFTA/LA’s education and scholarship programs and to help South Central L.A. kids. Additionally, also Geri Halliwell (who pitched in and called out the raffle winners), Thora Birch, director Alan Parker, Dexter Fletcher, David Suchet and Steve Valentine attended.
If you ever come across a better version of this picture and/or additional pictures of Sophia from this event please don’t hesitate to send them in, thank you!
