Says Sophie: "I like to do work which allows me to take risks aesthetically but also tell a story and create emotional intrigue. I get very excited about a script that is interesting and creatively challenging - where we have room to experiment and collaborate together to build something fresh and new and I love projects where the ideas lead the way."
