Quotes from Sophia

I did my first bit of American television. It’s called ‘The Hades Factor’ by Robert Ludlum from the Bourne books and it’s two parts, two hours, about viral warfare. It’s quite scary, actually. I play an American, an infectious disease researcher called Sophie Amsden and I’m engaged to another doctor played by Stephen Dorff and Angelica Huston is the President of the United States.
