well done Sophie
The Almighty’s Blessings
I am so happy for her, I always thought she was such an underrated actress!
Congrats to Sophie. I think she is an amazing actress. I would love to see perform live in the show as I love the film.
I like this woman. She can actually act and doesn’t appear to be a famewhore (meaning any celebrity is a result of her talent, not her pushing up herself, unnecessarily).
