This is Sofie’s debut fringe performance, although she is a fringe veteran having been involved ‘behind the scenes’ at the festive since she was 9 years old!!
Sofie reads and writes voraciously. She’s completed her first novel at the age of 16, which she hopes will be published soon and is the process of writing her second. One of her poems is published in Young Writer’s 2019 ‘Poetry Escape - Surrey’ and she recently won Hurtwood House’s Photoverse 2019.
Sofie has written, directed and edited five Murder Mystery short films, with the help of her like-minded friends. She set up a Film Club (creating a film) with year 7 & 8 students, which she led for two year.
Sofie has created three small scale installation theme parties based on Harry Potter, including one with a full sized Quidditch game! She loves creating quizzes for family and friends, doing SFX make-up and is a big George Orwell and Harry Potter fan!
Having worked for Wizard Presents, on and off, for a number of years, (including social media, leafleting and promoting shows) she is now heading up the Young Wizard division of the company which will launch at Edinburgh Fringe 2019.
Sofie’s work experience was at Nimax Theatres in London.
Sofie studied English, Drama and Media A levels at Hurtwood House School and is about to head off to New York Film Academy to study screen writing. She needs to raise as much money as possible to follow her dreams to become a writer!
