About Sophie

Sophie Shapiro is a dancer turned actress originally from Lake Tahoe, Nevada. As the youngest to three headstrong big brothers, when she wasn’t racing them skiing down the mountain, she was entering imaginary worlds through reading or adventuring in her backyard. Art has always been a part of Sophie’s life: both of her grandma’s are music teachers and thus everyone in the family had to play not one, but two instruments growing up. Music is the love language of the Shapiro family, and Sophie sports the classic rock music knowledge of a typical boomer (and the classic lit knowledge of a typical octogenarian). Her inclination to play pretend was only increased when her family moved to Redondo Beach, California when she was 15. Spending time in Los Angeles left her to fall in love with acting, in addition to constantly being sunburnt from too much time at the beach. Now at 21 years old, Sophie’s passion for storytelling has fused with a commitment to meaningful social change. She hopes to continue performing in pieces that amplify undertold stories, as well as to keep soaking up the sun and navigating life as an old soul.
