Sophie Lyons, Agent's Assistant
Sophie began dancing at the age of 3 at the Wallasey School of Ballet where she trained in Ballet and Tap until the age of 18. Whilst performing in a number of professional musicals and being regularly taken to the theatre to watch plays, it was then that she decided that she wanted to work as an actress. Fast forward through a lovely guest lead for BBC 'Doctors' and Drama School training, Sophie decided that she much preferred the other side of things. She has since worked as a Casting Assistant for both Film and Theatre, and is now enjoying working as Assistant to Steve. At the same time, Sophie is also about to begin her final year of her BA in Film Studies at King's College London, with the hopes of moving on to study her MPhil at Cambridge University.
