Hi, it's Sophie here - Shona West! Thanks for visiting
my Star File!
DOB: 17th November
TV: GMTV (1993);
Shona West in GRANGE HILL (BBC 2001-2002); various commercials
FILMS: I've played
a countess in MARIKEN
SOPHIE ON SHONA: In
some ways I'm similar to Shona as I'm quite sensitive,
but I don't think I could be as easily led as she was!
Shona was very vulnerable in Year 7 as she had just started
high school and at the same time had to cope with her
parents splitting up. Being friends with Maddie gave her
a sense of importance. In real life I would never bully
anyone and I like to think my choice of friends is better
HOBBIES: My favourite
hobby is singing and I've been having lessons since I was
7 - I drive everyone mad singing around the house! I also
love writing poems, drawing, illustrating and just about anything
that's creative. As well as singing to music I also love listening
to it - apart from heavy metal that is!
ON FAME... I auditioned
for the part of Shona the week before filming of Series 24 began
- I went to the audition one day and was lucky enough to be
offered the part the next! Being a part of GH is like taking
part in a little bit of history - it's such a famous show that
I feel proud to have been a part of it and it was a wonderful
experience that I'll always remember.
FAMILY: I have one Arsenal-mad
brother called Brandon who is 8. I'm animal mad and have a
lilac guinea-pig called Bella and 1 black guinea pig called
