Discovering a penchant for the theatrical arts at a very young, Sophie Wilde’s journey was filled with an array of experiences.

In addition to exploring the avenues of her abilities, Sophie is also close with her parents. In 2014, the actress trekked to the Himalayas with her father following the snowstorm disaster in Nepal. The daughter-father duo had been reportedly missing for nine days before resuming contact. The duo had traveled to a remote area of the Himalayas when the avalanche hit. In tune with her adventurous spirit, Sophie has also explored the extent of her skills.
