I'm so glad you're enjoying it, Carol. And I'm really sad she won't be back for the next series. :Mickangel:

Wasn't she supposed to get married?
I find it odd she just disappeared.
Wonder if she is preggers. :chin:

I have no idea, Grace. Although Mia, who runs sophiamyles.org has announced that she's scaling back and handing over the site to someone else - it's a shame as she's been such a great source of info in the past. I hope the site continues under the new owner.

Anyway, here's a nice interview with Sophia from last September, about Spooks:

Sophia Myles is continuing her endorsement of sophiamyles.org as her Official Fansite and has already sent some news to the new owner since I stepped down :D

Hi Mia,

Thanks so much for letting us know! :hearts: We'll miss your wonderful leadership at that site - but it sounds as if it's in good hands, and Sophia is happy there. :hug:

The company that makes Spooks has announced that series 10 will be the final one. Ten years is no bad run for any drama, and while I'm really sorry Sophia won't be in the last series, she joins some of Britain's acting greats in having been part of one of the most successful shows of the last decade.

This blog article from The Guardian does a brilliant job of explaining why it's been so popular:

This interview with the head writers sets out their stall for series 10 - and also touches very briefly on Sophia's exit from the show. I might be reading too much into it, but they make it sound as though it was her decision not to return:

This is a nice little article, primarily about Sophia leaving Spooks, but also referencing some of her other roles:

Nice little piece. :thumbs:

Apparently Sophia is hanging out with Waldo these days. Impossible to find... :snicker:
Personally, i still contend she is preggers.

Certainly the spy drama has lost some of its charisma with the double departure of Richard Armitage and Sophia Myles, the latter after just one series.


Quite. :yes:

Watching...

This was some months ago... I hope it is working out.

After hearing that Sophia was going to be in MI-5, I felt I had to start at the beginning of the series.

I have FINALLY gone through the 8 seasons before and have watched the first three episodes of Sophia. This Beth is a complicated character; you're not sure if she's good or bad - particularly the second episode.

Having watched the seasons before, there is definitely a style that all the spies fit into and Sophia does it admirably. Very serious but with very dry humor. I do miss the fun side I know she can play but that isn't consistant with the show.

Well it appears our past conjectures of her absence was more 'walk-about' than being preggers. She made it to Chiller sans ring without a male friend....so I guess it was not to be.

Her past intended, has only listings on "Who dated Who", then on MyLife this small post: Brent Thomas Funston was born in 1974.
Spoiler:
Brent currently lives in Laguna Beach, California.


Meanwhile, IMDB lists the role of Rachel Marshall in Blackwood (filming) and Lauren in Gallows Hill


Wishing Sophia a banner 2013!
