I come from an artistic family; my mother was an artistic operatic and film director. I was brought up literally around the stage and acting comes naturally to me. Consequently I am well versed in how to act in a variety of roles and situations. I have acted in TV, film and opera in the Far East, Italy and UK. Please see my websites www.sophiemezzo.com and www.starnow.co.uk/sofiasole for photos and more info.

Aug to Sep 2015 I was shooting " THE RECEPTIONIST ", a feature film produced in Taiwan, in which I play the ruthless Madam Lily who owns the massage parlour. The film portrays the difficulties faced by migrant workers in London when things go wrong. It has now (2017) been shown in Taiwan, New York, South Africa, Edinburgh (International Film Festival), London, Italy (nominated for best feature film).

Modelling

Modeling experience

Part-time model - paid commercial work


I have done a lot of modelling, mainly for commercial/advertising purposes and also for magazines and newspapers and a UK Government department. I am flexible and can adapt to universal surroundings. I have an "international" look, although I am actually Chinese, and I look young for my age. I am well-preserved and take good care of my appearance. I also have good posture and expression as a result of my acting and singing experience.

I have a very broad musical repertoire, encompassing Chinese songs, German lieder, French romantic, Italian classical, Russian traditional songs, Neapolitan folk songs and a selection of English/American light and romantic songs. I am an experienced and confident performer with a rich mezzo voice, and I enhance my performances with my other experience of acting and modelling, posture, stage presence etc. Please see my website; www.sophiemezzo.com
