A vicar's daughter brought up in Islesworth, West London, SOPHIA MYLES (Lady Penelope) was spotted by a British casting director at the age of 16 in a school play and offered a small part in the television version of The Prince and the Pauper. Filming during her G.C.S.E.s, she learned her lines at night in a hotel and still got straight ‘A's. During her A levels, she appeared in Fay Weldon's Big Women. She turned down a place studying philosophy at Cambridge in favor of pursuing a career in acting.

Myles was next cast as Susan in Patricia Roczema's feminist Mansfield Park and as Oliver Twist's mother in the Bleasdale adaptation. She then starred opposite Charles Dance in Nicholas Nickleby for ITV.

Myles continued full speed ahead, with starring roles in the period piece The Abduction Club, opposite Matthew Rhys for director Stefan Schwartz, and the American thriller From Hell, in which she played Johnny Depp's wife.

She was also recently seen opposite Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen in the dark futuristic thriller Underworld. Myles has also completed filming in Prague starring in the role of Isolde opposite James Franco in the upcoming feature Tristan & Isolde for director Kevin Reynolds and producer Ridley Scott. Myles presently lives in London.
