The Wylde Interview: Sophie Skelton

Check out this great new interview with Sophie and stunning photoshooot!


Wylde: You started out doing ballet and singing, then moved into musical theatre. What kind of productions did you play in when you were younger?

Sophie Skelton: I ended up doing quite a range of musicals, from the slightly darker ones like Chicago to Oliver! and similar. Funnily enough, my first ever TV appearance was on the game show A Question of Sport. They have a “mystery guest” section, and I was doing a production of Oliver! at the Palace Theatre. The boxer Ricky Hatton came to the theatre and we had to perform one of the main musical numbers and re-choreograph it around him for him to then be revealed at the end. I think I was 11 at the time. That’s so bizarre… I just remembered that!

Did the idea of being a pop singer ever cross your mind, or were you always more drawn to the musical theatre side of things?

No, my career choices were between acting and being a surgeon – so highly unrelated to one another! I always felt more called to the acting though. I was forever at the cinema, I just loved it. It’s still my escape place now. I do still sing, and I love it, and the idea of being on stage again performing is really exciting to me but it was never my passion. Acting allows you to play out other people’s stories. I feel with singing, you sing about your own. I’m quite a private person; I think I’d rather use any heartache in my life to play someone else’s rather than divulge my own through a song!

What films inspired you, as a younger actress?

Anything with Audrey Hepburn, to be honest. The acting style was a lot bigger then and can often look almost comical now because it seems so “large” when taken out of its time and watched today, but she always managed to root everything in reality, even with that in mind. She made it so real. Others are Saving Private Ryan, Good Will Hunting, Band of Brothers. That’s off the top of my head but there are so many more!
