Sophia’s BBC4 Radio play will air a week later than first announced: Tuesday, 12 June 2012, 2.15-3.00pm. But we have more information what it is about and who Sophia Myles is playing:
Facing deportation from the UK, a young Iranian student, Reza Mostafai, claims asylum on the grounds that he is gay, fearing for his safety if he is returned to his homeland.
With the help of his barrister Fiona and best friend Lulu, Reza must try and find a way to prove his sexuality in time to halt his removal. Can they find someone to come forward to testify to the truth of Reza’s claim?
Christine Murphy’s debut radio drama is a powerful and shocking story of one man’s desperate attempt to prove his homosexuality.
Starring Jamie Harding as Reza, Sophia Myles as Fiona, and Vicky McClure as Lulu, the cast also includes Ben Caplan, Zubin Varla, Ian Beattie and Maggie Cronin.

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
