I'm not a posh bird

13 August 2009   |   Written by PA

Sophia Myles has insisted it’s a myth that she’s a “posh bird”.

The actress – who has starred in films such as Thunderbirds and Underworld – has played several refined characters and thinks it’s funny that she’s seen as posh.

She laughed: “The biggest myth about me is I’m like the posh bird – I’m totally not.”

The London-born star added: “I’m a vicar’s daughter, but I learned to speak posh because my dad’s first parish when I was younger was Notting Hill Gate, so we were surrounded by a lot of people saying, ‘Oh ya.’ I picked up that when I was a kid, but it’s not in my blood.

“I’m an actor so I can pretend to be whatever you want really. I’ve always tried to avoid being typecast.”

Sophia’s latest movie, the sci-fi epic Outlander, in which she plays a Viking warrior princess, is released on Blu-ray and DVD on August 31 from Momentum Pictures.
