Many thanks Ali for alerting me to a blog post on the TV Choice website, where journalist Helen Childs reports about the experience of interviewing the Spooks actors recently. The actual interviews will be released in autumn when the show starts airing.
This confirms that Sophia’s role in the British series will indeed be as an MI-5 agent and there are some interesting new details about her character. She plays Beth (interestingly enough) who is based on a real life character. Despite wearing some impressive heels in at least one scene (pics) she will not be seen running in them. Remembering what she said in the January 2009 Podcast about heels & running I’m actually very relieved to hear that.
