Stage role spooked me, says Sophia Myles
She is about to make her West End debut after testing the waters by taking part in the Old Vic’s 24 Hour Play fundraiser.
The 32-year-old actress joins the cast of new play Utopia at the Soho Theatre.
Discovered by Julian Fellowes in a school play in Isleworth, she is better known for TV and films such as Thunderbirds, Underworld and Hallam Foe.
Myles, who lives in Queen’s Park, said you had to face your fears “to evolve”. Speaking in rehearsals, she said Utopia was “funny but thought-provoking”. It runs from June 20 to July 14.
