Last night saw the premiere of A Discovery of Witches in the UK!
We even got a peek of Sophia’s character Rebecca Bishop (albeit photo form)
Having read the books I’ve been excited about this show since it was announced, even more so when Sophia was due to appear in it, and it didn’t disappoint!
I cannot wait for the next episode!
(I am not sure about air dates for other countries but as soon as I find out, I will edit into this post 🙂 )
Sophia has provided the narration for another episode of BBC Panorama, entitled North Korea’s Secret Slave Gangs
As President Trump and the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, prepare for an unprecedented summit, Panorama investigates North Korean modern-day slavery. It is thought that more than one hundred thousand North Korean workers are posted abroad to earn money for the cash-strapped regime – money that is being ploughed into Kim Jong-un’s nuclear weapons programme. An international consortium of journalists has filmed undercover to reveal secret work gangs operating in Russia, China and Poland.
The episode is available to watch via BBC iPlayer
Sophia is set to star as Rebecca Bishop in the TV adaptation of historical fantasy novel A Discovery of Witches, the first book in the All Souls trilogy.
In a world where witches, vampires and daemons live discreetly among humans, Diana Bishop is the last in one long line of distinguished witches. Unwilling to embrace her heritage she has immersed herself in her career as an historian. Her particular interest is alchemy and she visits Oxford to research some of Elias Ashmole’s papers. She requests Ashmole 782 and as soon as she receives it she knows there is something uncanny about it; when she opens it she is shocked. She learns that 782 has been presumed lost for a very long time and that each species of Creature desires it. She is besieged and threatened and knows that, to protect herself, she must uncover all the mysteries of 782. She encounters the enigmatic vampire, Matthew Clairmont, who offers to help her; their mutual attraction is immediate, undeniable and inexplicable because they both know that witches and vampires are not supposed to trust each other. Diana makes her choice and accepts Matthew’s help. This precipitates them into conflict with the Creature world. From IMDB
