Sophia Myles is one of the most talented and natural British actresses. Over the years she has slowly but steadily built up a reputation of being a serious actress. By only accepting parts that she could believe in she was able to deliver outstanding performances in each one of them. Often, critics are quick to praise her acting – even when Sophia only had a small part in a project or when they didn’t like the movie very much (e.g. Underworld or Thunderbirds). This, combined with her intelligence, down-to-earth attitude and good character makes it a pleasure to follow her career. We cannot wait to hear what is next for this fabulous actress!!
