Examiner recently interviewed the beautiful and talented actress Marie Sophon. Here is what she talked to us about:

How and when did you first get into performing?

I danced a lot when I was younger - ballet, modern, jazz, so I was in a few dance performances from the age of 6 or 7 years. I started taking part in musical theatre in high school, but I didn't get into "straight" acting until much later.

Who were some of your biggest inspirations?

Growing up, my biggest inspirations were Madonna and Michelle Pfeiffer. Madonna was the best and broke all the rules, which contrasted with my conformist upbringing in conservative Thai society. Michelle Pfeiffer was beautiful and gifted. I used to come home everyday from school and watch Grease 2 and Evita the movie.

What kind have training have you done?

I trained at the William Esper Studio in New York City in a full-time conservatory program (Meisner based). I've also taken an introductory course at Stella Adler Studio, an intensive Shakespeare course, and I take on-going lessons with a private coach. I've also taken on-going voice (singing) lessons.

What has been your favorite role to play so far?

I loved playing the lead in Placebo's narrative music video "Too Many Friends."

What projects do you have coming up?

I am on my way to LA for an intensive 3 day casting workshop. I'm also starring in a short film which will be distributed to festivals.

Who would be your ideal co-star and why?

Anyone who's present, spontaneous, daring and hard working. I have always admired Susan Sarandon and Sandra Oh for these qualities. I think Sam Riley is also powerful and very sexy on screen.

What are your plans for the future?

Ideally I want to work in Prime time TV, film and stage between London, New York and LA. My short-term goal is to star in prime time TV and start doing more feature films in LA.

What is your advice to other aspiring artists?

Take care of yourself, stay busy and persist. If you can, get yourself a career coach because marketing matters and it put you on a faster track. Surround yourself with people who believe in your success. Be grateful. Build up enough self confidence through the process of your artistic creativity so that in difficult times you can separate your love for acting from the industry.
