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
