Sophie decided to be an actress when she was three-years-old and, after two years of negotiations with her reluctant parents, and them even trying to get former child superstar Donny Osmond to dissuade her, she finally prevailed and got her first job in The Pilot's Wife (2002). It was a wonderful experience working with Christine Lahti who inspired Sophie to want to be the best she can be in all she does. Two Canadian commercials followed. Then her parents, actor Adrian Hough and former British talent agent Marina Darling, moved the family to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. She is still working as an actress as well as pursuing excellent academic achievements and her hobbies: soccer, ballet, music, horse-riding and creating adventures with the fairies in her back garden with her sister, actress Rose Hough, and her baby brother William.
