Sophie Cookson may not be a name you’re fully familiar with but we can bet our Topshop store card you will recognise her face.
The glamorous 25 year old has already appeared in a spate of TV series and films and even fought off fierce competition from Harry Potter actress Emma Watson to win her most coveted role as Roxy, in Matthew Vaughn’s comic book adaptation, Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Plucked directly from drama school by Vaughn, Cookson appeared alongside Samuel L Jackson and Colin Firth in the action packed spy comedy, however it seems her biggest coup was meeting Michael Caine.
“We were in this tiny mahogany library room which was so beautiful. And Michael is just sitting there in a chair being Michael Caine. Shaking his bear hands – he’s got the biggest hands in the world – it was a real moment of ‘God, I’m really quite proud of what I’ve done’,” Sophie told …
And its not just filmmakers who are keen to work with Sophie, as she’s already become a firm favourite on the front row, appearing at Miu Miu’s AW15 fashion show in Paris as well as being dressed in the house’s apparel – plus Chanel – for an array of red carpet events.
Aside from her chic taste in clothes – we love her smart tailored look and chic Parisian style – the stunning starlet was also shortlisted for a Best Newcomer award at the Empire Film Awards and already has a strong cult following, with her own fan-dedicated Tumblr page.
We have a feeling this definitely isn’t the last we’ve seen of Ms Cookson, as her latest movie – Emperor, where she stars alongside Adrien Brody – is due for general release later this year. Did someone say A–list actress in the making?
