Sofia is the daughter of Larissa Vassilieva, and Vladimir Vassiliev, both Russian immigrants from Novosibirsk, and who both worked as scientists, Larissa as a biologist, while Vladimir was a physicist. A child prodigy, Sofia started learning French, while also speaking in her parents’ native language and English as well – she continued with this practice, and now speaks eight languages. In addition to studying new languages, Sofia also took ballet lessons, gymnastics, and started playing piano at seven years of age, simultaneously also becoming a part of the International Modeling and Talent Association and won the title of Child Actress , while she was also first runner-up as Child Model Of The Year 2000.

In 2000 she matriculated from Barbizon Modeling and Acting School, and in 2001 made her acting debut, cast as Elena in the TV thriller drama series “The Agency”, while in 2002 she made her film debut as Cindy Brady in the film about the popular fictional Brady family, “The Brady Bunch in the White House”. The following year she starred in the horror “Inhabited”, and portrayed Eloise in the “Eloise at Christmastime”, and “Eloise at the Plaza”, for which role Sofia received a Young Artist Award nomination in the category Best Performance in a TV Movie, Miniseries or Special – Leading Young Actress. Later she was selected for the role of Ariel Dubois, her most prominent role to date, and appeared in 130 episodes of the Golden Globe Award- winning TV series, which increased her wealth to a large degree. After the show ended, she enrolled in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art’s Shakespeare course in London, from which she graduated in 2013, and during that time wasn’t much active as an actress. She also graduated with a BA and Sc degree with magna cum laude from Columbia College, Columbia in 2014.

In recent years, Sofia has appeared in minor roles in several TV series, including “Stalker” (2015), “Lucifer” (2016), “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” (2017), and “Training Day” (2017). Also, she’s worked on several films, including “Brighton Beach” and “Bad Stepmother”, both scheduled for release later in 2017.

Regarding her personal life, little is known about Sofia’s private life, as she tends to keep her most intimate details hidden from the public eye.

Sofia Vassilieva Quotes

  • On her role Kate in My Sister’s Keeper (2009): There are scripts when you fall so much in love with your character. And if you are lucky and offered this part you should not tempt your fate and go to the greatest extent to be/to play this character. If you have an opportunity to do that and you do not, it’s shameful. Shaving my head was the least I could do for Kate to experience the degree of her isolation and outcast from a ‘normal’ healthy life. Playing Kate was like balancing between two realities.
  • Oh! I would like to learn so many things: I’d like to take tennis classes, I’d like continuing vocal lessons, and I’d definitely like taking more ice skating and more tap. I’d like to really learn painting, and I’d like to learn Tibetan – Lhasa Dialect – and really learn Farsi, so that I can speak to my friend and her family; I would like to learn so many things. But I just barely have enough time to do what I am doing now.
  • [on her work in Medium] I want to be challenged, I want to work, and I want to feel that I am not being held back, that there is something in front of me, something more inspiring than… just eating breakfast, you know?
  • There is work, and there is pleasure, Acting is pleasure.
  • My mother is my hero.
  • As long as you can laugh you are not old.
  • It (acting) is something I want to do as long as I live.
  • About the filming of the “Eloise” movies: It was like a long vacation, a 54 -day vacation.
