Sophie began the masterclass with a discussion on what it takes to make it onto the big screen, along with the ups and downs that she experienced and how she overcame each one.

Exploring character development and dynamic was a big topic throughout the class, leading to a session on how to create your own ‘self tape’ for auditions.

Sophie explained why you shouldn’t be embarrassed about how you look on camera.

” No one has the answer of how to be an actor. It’s so important to watch your own work because it’s the only way you learn.” – Sophie Simnett

She also said that you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help and show your work to others around you, if it helps you to succeed.
