Sophie Cookson
“Sometimes strong women in film are made to look macho or boyish. I love that my character is both strong and feminine.”

The Undercover Girl: Cookson, 24, beat out fellow Brit Emma Watson to play a spy in training in Kingsman: The Secret Service alongside Colin Firth and Sir Michael Caine.
Her off-duty uniform: She’s glammed up here, but the recent drama-school grad loves “nothing more than a good pair of boots, jeans, and a leather jacket,” she says. “Some days I just throw on a big scarf.”
How she chooses an outfit: “I seek comfort even when dressing for an awards ceremony. Jewelry helps to dress it up, and hair—big hair.”

CATALOGUE – Sophie Cookson is waiting for the sun to come out so she can go borrow a dog. Not just any dog, she’s got her eye on one in particular who lives on her street in North London. “It’s a Welsh Terrier, so it’s kind of like a smaller version of an Airedale. But it’s not too small that it’s not really a dog anymore, it’s still a good size,” Sophie explains. “Yeah they’re vey cute, quite old mannish with a bit of a beard.” She admits, “I’m just desperate for a dog so I just have to pinch one”. She has impeccable manners, and I can only imagine that any kind of dog time-share situation would be traded with a plate of baked goods and the world’s sweetest smile.

It’s the kind of normalcy she’s enjoying, possibly while she still can. Sophie Cookson is no household name, but is being increasingly inked alongside phrases like ‘next big thing’ and ‘one to watch’. Helped in no small part by the story that the 24 year old beat out fellow English rose (but a decidedly more famous rose) Emma Watson, along with Bella Heathcote, to the role of Roxy in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. Vaughn has been praised in the past for his talent-scouting eye, casting up-and-comers Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz as the two leads in Kickass, and a pre-Bond Daniel Craig in Layer Cake. Like Kickass before it, Kingsman: The Secret Service is an adaptation of a Mark Millar comic. It’s being billed as the Kickass of the spy thriller genre: a refresher in the world of increasingly prosaic spy movie franchises.

The credits are stacked with some pretty big names: Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Samuel L Jackson. As far as apprenticeships go, a young actor could do worse for masters. “Yeah it’s bizarre. Because I mean I never – in a million years – thought I’d be working with people like that,” Sophie says. It’s enough to make the first day at a new job fairly daunting. “I was incredibly nervous,” Sophie concedes. “But I thought that was pretty normal and pretty standard, trying to remind myself that everyone was probably feeling slightly anxious, it’s the first day and everyone’s settling in.”
