Sophie Patterson

Age: 24 yrs & 3 mths

Hi! I’m Sophie and I’m 23 and currently living in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. I completed an undergraduate degree in Drama and English Literature at the University of Birmingham, and will be heading back over to England to complete my Masters in Acting. I have 10 years’ experience in acting, ranging from Shakespeare, musical theatre, opera, comedy, devised work, improvisation, acting for screen and everything in between. I have experience working as a Halloween Scare actor and working regularly as a Princess Impersonator. I’ve been lucky enough to take part in workshops with the Royal Shakespeare Company, perform at the Royal Albert Hall,  participate in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and take part in the National Youth Music Theatre’s 2021 programme.

I’m hard working and love to push myself out of my comfort zone. I’m a cheerful, enthusiastic person who loves working with people and am passionate about working within the film, television and theatre industries, and I can’t wait to see what I will learn along the way.
