Sophia backpacking in South-East Asia

Wondering what Sophia Myles is up to at the moment? The Daily Mail has the scoop:

Lady Penelope leaves her pink Rolls behind as she goes on a backpacking adventure

‘I have ticked a lot of those material aspiration boxes – I’ve been in big movies, I’ve bought a house. But at the end of the day inner peace is the most important thing,’ says vicar’s daughter Sophia, 29, who appeared in the 2004 Thunderbirds film.

‘I’m going backpacking to Thailand on my own, and I hope to get across to Cambodia. I haven’t planned anything. I’ve just booked a ticket, and I’ll see what happens.

‘I would have been quite scared to do it ten years ago, but now is the time. I’m doing it on my own. It could be a really liberating adventure’

Isn’t this fabulous?! It makes me want to go on a similar adventure myself!

A new interview

Last week the California Chronicle re-published an interview with Sophia from the Belfast Telegraph. While it’s a short one contrary to the other recent articles it’s a full interview and she talks about ‘Outlander‘, ‘Moonlight‘ (which is currently airing on Virgin1 in the UK on Monday nights), ‘Thunderbirds‘, ‘Doctor Who‘ as well as the persistent rumour about ‘Buddha’s Little Finger‘ (it’s definitely not happening). Enjoy the read!

5 minutes with… Sophia Myles, Belfast Telegraph & Tiscali.co.uk, August 22

[edit:] I replaced the article with another re-publication by Tiscali.co.uk wich has the additional sentence “I know it’s still acting but it’s like the difference between, say, painting in watercolour and painting in oils” in Sophia’s answer to the question about stage work.

WHAT’S BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE ROLE OVER THE YEARS? I really would struggle to pick one role because each film is like a different adventure. Each film-making experience is unique in its own way.
