VARIETY – Expect to see Cookson a lot in 2017. With four projects coming up, the 26-year-old has been jetting around to locations around the world — from Romania to New York to Lithuania. “I’ve definitely done the Eastern European tour,” she jokes. The sequel in the “Kingsman” franchise is set to come out in October, in which Cookson plays Roxy, a fierce special agent. When Cookson got the role back in 2013, it was “absolute madness.” “Emperor” and “Ashes in the Snow” are also on the docket, and Cookson is filming Netflix’s “Gypsy,” an experience so exciting, she goes “to work with a very large skip in my step.”
Sophie attended the Gemfields In Conversation Cocktail Party during New York Fashion Week on September 9, 2016 in New York City. She was absolutely stunning in that black dress!
