Sophia in 24 Hour Plays Celebrity Gala

Found this at the Simply Sophia web site

http://sophiamyles.org/2011/10/10/sophia-to-take-part-in-the-ultimate-theatrical-challenge/

"Now in its eighth year The 24 Hour Plays Celebrity Gala is one of the most exciting and glamorous evenings in London’s theatre calendar. A host of acclaimed actors, directors and writers join forces to write, rehearse and perform six short plays in just 24 hours. It’s the ultimate theatrical challenge, culminating in a unique evening played out on one of the world’s most celebrated stages – The Old Vic – on Sunday 13 November 2011."

Sophia sent this note to Natalie

My agent sent me an email asking if I was interested in taking part in the 24 Hour Plays Gala at The Old Vic Theatre. I almost wet my pants in fear just reading the email. I am not a stage actress as you all know… but what I do know is this… facing FEAR is the gateway to the next dimension.

I have said yes. I can’t believe I have said yes. Sky diving naked almost seems less scary! So please wish me luck and if I die as the curtain comes up you are all invited to my funeral.

Love to you all! Sophia x


Go Sophia!

Wow--she is so courageous to do this! Talk about a trial by fire! :gasp: And what a sweetie she is--she's got a great sense of humor about it, and she's asking her fans for moral support (not to mention inviting all of us to her funeral, should she die when the curtain rises!). :giggle: :hearts:

I wish her the very best. And I hope she has fun doing it!

:laugh: I am guessing she'll survive, and do just fine, to boot.
But she may have just given Alex a new thrills idea... :rolling:

I do remember that Michelle Borth participated in something like this in LA last winter so Alex does have the option.

I was referring to the naked skydiving... And Sophia said it first. :winky:

"Doh" :slaphead:

I totally missed the innuendo. I'll have to think about it for awhile though...

This sounds incredible! What a cool concept this Gala is -- it must be fabulous to see. :notworthy:

Good for her! :hearts:

Wow. So glad for her. But um, someone please write a fic about a naked reporter who almost fell to her death but was rescued *lucky for her* by a stalker vampire. :rolling: :snicker:

Thanks for the info. :wave:

What an amazing experience that must have been. I'm so proud of Sophia for having the courage to go so far out of her comfort zone!

She is so sweet and down to earth. I'm sure she'll do just fine and I wish her the best of luck.

And like Alle, I hope she has fun doing it.

So funny, the first thing I thought when I read the naked skydiving comment was that I bet not everyone :brow: would find that scary. :teeth:

An article about the plays with a photo of Sophia. It looks like she's letting her hair grow longer.
