I added 2 stills of Sophia taken during the actual performance of the Fay Weldon play ‘The Four Alice Bakers‘. I can’t believe I never saw these pictures before, but the few places that have them didn’t list Sophia’s name for the pictures so I couldn’t find them. The untagged versions I found were of much poorer quality (they’ve been posted in the messageboard) so I decided to add the ones with the light tag on them.
Sophia played the young Alice Baker opposite Richard Armitage at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre from February 19 to March 13, 1999. So far we only had 2 pictures from the rehearsals, thanks to Richard Armitage Online. They also have more info about their scene together:
In his first scene with Sophia Myles as the young Alice Baker, set in 1952, the couple dance a foxtrot to ‘Some Enchanted Evening’, he so badly that they give up and, in the course of three pages of dialogue, become engaged instead.

Over the past few months Sophia Myles has been lending her voice to audio book versions of the very popular fairy stories from Rainbow Magic written by Daisy Meadows for little children. Two of them are already available as a set including the single CD (duration: 1 hr 10 mins) and the illustrated book. I’ll put up a short synopsis of the two books as well as a link to a site that lists all the sellers where they are available.
Rainbow Magic: Holly the Christmas Fairy Available at
A delightful Christmas audio edition, magically brought to life with fairy music, and beautifully read by actress, Sophia Myles. The King and Queen of Fairyland are all in a fluster. Jack Frost is up to his old tricks and has kidnapped the Christmas elves. Without the elves to make the presents and decorate the trees, there won’t be any Christmas this year. Can Rachel and Kirsty save the day, with a little help from Holly the Christmas Fairy?
Rainbow Magic: Stella the Star Fairy Available at
One of two very special “Rainbow Magic” Christmas audio editions – “Stella the Star Fairy” is beautifully read by actress, Sophia Myles, and the accompanying music is sure to delight “Rainbow Magic” fans everywhere. Stella the Star Fairy, is all in a flutter, trying to put the sparkle into Christmas. Stella looks after all the special Christmas lights – from the overhead illuminations, to the Christmas tree fairy lights, right through to the twinkling stars. Three magic Christmas baubles control all of these elements but now Jack Frost’s goblins have stolen them. There’s not going to be any Christmas atmosphere and Santa won’t even be able to guide his sleigh through the night sky. Stella the Star Fairy needs Rachel and Kirsty’s help to get the baubles back.
Spring 2006 will see the release of another book read by Sophia Myles: Rainbow Magic: Summer the Holiday Fairy.
Seems like I was too quick to add those music video screen captures… I’ve now replaced them with the ones I took from the full-length video. At the end of the album are still 20 pictures from the short version – because these scenes aren’t in the long version. The video available for download on this site is the short version – due to space reasons. You can view the full version at IESB or at The WB website.
I’ve added the captures from the other clips & featurettes at IESB.
Here some interesting quotes from the featurette:
Sophia Myles on James Franco: He’s a joy to work with, he’s such a kind, gentle person – and incredible to watch.
James Franco on Sophia Myles: Great beauty, but also an innocence mixed with wisdom.
Rufus Sewell on Sophia Myles: Sophia’s lovely. She has a great sense of humour. We spent a lot of time giggling – which, when you do love scenes, is an essential.
I’ve added caps from the music video ‘We Belong Together’. While I was at it I re-capped the other 2 music videos Sophia Myles was part in. There are more caps now. Enjoy!
239 We Belong Together
146 Love Won’t Work
Apparently, the press junket for the movie – which opens on Friday in the States – took place last Friday. This means we’ll probably soon get interviews etc. To get some clips from the movie, the full-length music video and soon also an interview with James Franco and Sophia Myles go to IESB. I’ll make the caps as soon as I find time.
Thanks to Mel we have the music video ‘We Belong Together’ by Gavin DeGraw featuring Sophia Myles and scenes from ‘Tristan & Isolde’ here on the site available for
EDIT: You can now watch these clips in our new media archive (here)
