Some of the questions we ask her:

  1. What was it like for you growing up as a redhead?
  2. What was it like playing Dylan Marvil in The Clique?
  3. Would you ever dye your hair another color for a movie role? We share that Jessica Chastain only wears wigs and will not dye her hair. Sophie responded, "If Jessica Chastain doesn't have to then neither will I.." Hence, the title of this episode!
  4. You have a fun, unique way of putting together outfits. You put together looks inspired by songs. Which song has inspired an outfit recently?
  5. You moved to Los Angeles at 13 to start your acting career. Since then, have you noticed more opportunities for redheads in modeling and acting? We feel like we see a lot more redheads in advertisements now.
  6. You spent almost a decade building a company that helps new music artists connect to fans through intimate live shows. Have you noticed a connection between an artist’s visual style and their ability to build a following?
  7. Tell us the story of how you learned that you need to fill in your brows.
