HER CV reads like that of an established screen star.
But new Emmerdale cast member Sophia Moore is still in the fledgling stages of her television career – because she’s only three years old.
The Shepley starlet can already boast appearances in ITV drama Heartbeat and its spin-off series The Royal.
She has also been an extra on Emmerdale.
Now bosses of the ITV soap have given Sophia her big break by casting her as Sarah Sugden, the love child of Debbie Dingle and Andy Sugden.
It is her first ongoing role, complete with lines.
Mum Emma said she and husband Matt were immensely proud of their daughter.
She said: “She’s just got something you can’t put your finger on, the x-factor.
“She loves it.
“We’re absolutely overjoyed with the new part on Emmerdale, we want to tell the world.
Sophia has been on the books with the Rebel School of Theatre Arts and Casting Agency, run by Huddersfield woman Sue Fitton, since she was two.
Sue said: “With children, up to the age of about seven or eight, it’s all about confidence and social skills.
“Sophia is excellent – a very confident and happy little girl.
“She knows all the characters on Emmerdale and fully understands what’s going on.
“She loves life whatever she’s doing and I think it shows.”
Sophia’s first TV role, as a child with brittle bone disease in The Royal, came after her very first audition.
Emma said: “The producer of The Royal, Sue Jackson, tends to see something in children who have got a talent.
“She picked Sophia out straight away.
“She has always been really lively and was chattering away from the age of about eight months. She’s a star.
“She skips onto the set and gets on really well with her on-screen mum and step dad.
“Whenever she sees herself on TV she runs round the room screaming.”
