Sophia to take part in the ultimate theatrical challenge!

I am absolutely delighted to announce that Sophia Myles will be one of the actors taking part in The 24 Hour Plays Celebrity Gala!


My agent sent me an email asking if I was interested in taking part in the 24 Hour Plays Gala at The Old Vic Theatre. I almost wet my pants in fear just reading the email. I am not a stage actress as you all know… but what I do know is this… facing FEAR is the gateway to the next dimension.

I have said yes. I can’t believe I have said yes. Sky diving naked almost seems less scary!  So please wish me luck and if I die as the curtain comes up you are all invited to my funeral.

Love to you all!  Sophia x



Now in its eighth year The 24 Hour Plays Celebrity Gala is one of the most exciting and glamorous evenings in London’s theatre calendar. A host of acclaimed actors, directors and writers join forces to write, rehearse and perform six short plays in just 24 hours. It’s the ultimate theatrical challenge, culminating in a unique evening played out on one of the world’s most celebrated stages – The Old Vic – on Sunday 13 November 2011.
