Parentage: Father is a vicar in the Church of England.
Requested pronunciation: “So-FY-ah”
Best known for: From Hell, playing Johnny Depp’s wife
Upcoming: Thunderbirds, costarring Ben Kingsley, and Tristan and Isolde, costarring James Franco. “I love playing powerful women without having to be the sex vamp.”
On being the vicar’s daughter: “I didn’t rebel. My friends were getting pregnant and smoking dope. I was a swot, a boffin – a good student.”
Entree: Spotted in a school play by Gosford Park screenwriter Julian Fellowes, who cast her in the BBC miniseries The Prince and the Pauper. “I thought, I can sit in a classroom studying a novel and Harold Pinter plays, or I can be in a film of the novel, with Harold Pinter playing my uncle.”
Girlhood style: “I had one hideous outfit I thought was the bee’s knees: shorts and a top made out of towering, and a brooch in the shape of a birthday parcel.”
Fashion Idols: Kate Moss, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon
The Myles look: “I’m not so much a tomboy but I always feel like I’m a man in drag.”
Jeans of choice: Gap Men’s
Favourite thing in Hollywood: “Mexican food. I always come back fatter than when I left.”
