Welcome to 2011! To mark a new beginning Simply Sophia Myles is back with a brand-new design created by the talented messageboard member Natalie and coded by myself! There’s a new feature in that there’s a welcome page before you get to the news updates. To view the layout the way it was designed use preferably Firefox (though it should work in all modern browsers) and press F11 if necessary.
Sophia Myles has bestowed the title The Official Fansite to sophiamyles.org. Thank you very much! What does this mean? Nothing will change because it’s still maintained by myself – that’s also why it is an official fansite – but the new title stresses the fact that thanks to Sophia Myles this is the place to get all the latest and verified information about her and her career!
Thank you for your support in the past and I’m looking forward to hearing from you in 2011! Be sure to be an active and longterm member of the messageboard to fully enjoy the site.
Sophia Myles sent us exclusive pictures taken on the set of ‘From Hell‘ – which was filmed in 2000. Sophia is pictured with her co-star Johnny Depp and the directors of the movie The Hughes Brothers. Thank you so much!
Wishing everybody lots of love & joy together with their loved ones!

Hey everyone! This is a special opportunity to win 2 tickets to go see the indie flick “Etienne!” in Zürich, Switzerland. Now why would you want to do that? Because – are you ready? – the film features a short cameo appearance by Sophia Myles!
“Etienne!” tells the story of Richard who takes his beloved friend, a dwarf hamster named Etienne, on a bicycle road trip after he learns that his pocket pet is sick and has only a few days to live.
Director Jeff Mizushima created a movie that he calls “a film about the little things in life.” It’s produced by Giacun Caduff who met Sophia in 2004 while being her assistant on the set of “Art School Confidential“. They have since remained friends and Sophia taking part in his film was to help Giacun’s career as an up-and-coming producer. And here’s another interesting tidbit for you: while Giacun was Sophia’s assistant he was the person who actually first contacted me on Sophia’s behalf – and us both being Swiss is really one of those funny coincidences in life.
In the spring of 2008, when the Etienne! film team was on their way to San Francisco to record a few pick-up shots, Sophia phoned Giacun with the good news that she’d act in a short scene that they had talked about adding to the hamster film. He and Jeff drove their van on a detour up the Hollywood Hills and, equipped with a 16mm camera, Sophia’s scene was filmed at Lake Hollywood Park. It features hamster Etienne, lead-actor Richard Vallejos and Sophia who is credited in the movie ‘as herself’. For more about the film, visit: http://www.hamstermovie.com or the Official Facebook Page.
I myself had the fortune of seeing a special advance screening of this heartwarming movie in May 2009 and can definitely recommend it! Can you make it to Zürich, Switzerland this Friday? I have 1 pair of tickets to give away for the premiere that takes place at the Arthouse Movie cinema on December 10, 2010 at 10pm. To participate, send an email to mia [at] sophiamyles.org or fill out this contact form. Tickets have to be picked up at the theatre by December 9 – 10:30pm the latest.
“Etienne!” won the “Director to Watch” Award when first screened at CineVegas Film Festival back in 2009 and went on to become a critics darling and audience favorite at numerous other fests. It’ll be out on VOD and DVD in the US shortly. Switzerland is blessed with a theatrical run at Arthouse Movie in Zürich.
