"Ms. Agrelo’s facility with small fry is well documented, so it is perhaps no surprise that the film’s best performance comes from a 10-year-old.
Playing a near-motherless tyke, little Sophie Nyweide (who looks like a diminutive Emily Watson and already has five films under her belt) should have a
glowing future." - The New York Times

Great news! The short film Sophie did back in 2011 'Mistakes Were Made' is now available to watch online in full! Sophie plays Otelia a lonesome young farm girl who sets out on an adventure. The film is visually stunning with some really beautiful scenes. Sophie gives such an outstanding performance like always! She has barely any lines yet her role is filled with emotion. You can watch it below and screencaps are in the gallery.
Hello everyone! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'm super excited to be writing this post: Our girl has booked a new film project! This time it's an indie feature film named "Upstate Grounds". Sophie will be playing 'Sophia', a "girl in the process of becoming a young woman plagued by her desire to fit in". Sounds like a great role for Sophie, doesn't it? I couldn't be any more excited, Indie is my favorite type of film and the storyline looks promising. Check it out below:
Upstate Grounds is the story of the Font family, the wealthiest family in a town located in Upstate NY during the 70s. Aaron, who has always been given every wish his heart desires, leads a seemingly content life with an undercurrent of deep fear and anger, fostered by his parents, Louise and James. Their relationship, strained as it is, is ever tested by Louise's authoritative and imposing father, Virgil, who has never really accepted James as a suitable husband to his beloved daughter. They all live in the majestic Font Manor, alongside their simple and loyal gardener, Marty and his pre-pubescent daughter, Sophia, who goes to school with Aaron and wishes she didn't have to work in Aaron's house. Aaron's world of entitled non-reality is shaken to its foundation when James and Louise decide to get separated. Aaron devices a plan to bring his parents back together by playing to their mutual love for gardens and flowers and enlists Marty to teach him how to plant and grow a garden. Over a summer, Aaron's inner world will change by pushing his boundaries, learning the true value of work and embracing and loving others as he would himself.
Filming will take place during the summer and we can't wait to get more info to share with you all. We're so proud of you Sophie! Congrats
Hi guys! Unfortunately, we still don't have a lot of info on Sophie's new feature film "Noah", but we do know she wrapped filming a couple of days ago and she had a wonderful time on set working with big stars such as Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Russell Crowe. Thanks to Sophie's Facebook Fan Page we now know she gets to speak French in the movie. How cool is that?! This is what Sophie said:
"Awesome experience. Thank you Darren Aronofsky for letting me be a part of your film. I had a blast. Thank you Victoria for helping me with my French, and a special thanks to my "uncle" Don Harvey, for giving me great acting advice and just being super cool."
We're so excited for you Sophie!
In other news, the site is celebrating its first year online this October. Isn't that crazy? It looks like it was just yesterday when Saoirse and I were working to get it up & running! We'd like to say a big thank-you to everyone who visits Sunshine, and we hope you stick with us to see what the future holds for our talented girl!
Sophie recently shared her Acting Demo Reel and we thought we'd upload it here for everyone to see. The video features Sophie's films: "Home", "Mistakes Were Made", "An Invisible Sign", "Mammoth", "NYC Serenade", and "Bella". The reel also features a sneak peek at Sophie's character in "Mistakes Were Made"(starting at 00:57) - We are so excited to see the finished version!
Great news guys!! Sophie announced yesterday that today she begins filming on Noah, a new movie directed by Darren Aronofsky, the writer-director behind Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler and Black Swan. The film has an amazing cast including Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins and Logan Lerman!! We don't yet know anything about Sophie's role but she said "my part is really dramatic, the wardrobe is awesome and the set is unbelievable!" It sounds fantastic! This movie is going to be HUGE; as in worldwide release and a lots of promotion. The release date is currently listed as March 28th 2014 for the USA. The short summary given on IMDb is "The epic, biblical tale of Noah and the ark." We'll hopefully have more information coming your way soon, so stay tuned!
Hi all! Sorry for the recent lack of updates on my part. I've been swamped with school work. Back on topic, Sophie's commercial for Nutella that she filmed earlier this year is now online for all to watch! She said she had a great time filming it with Fatima Ptacek who plays her sister. You can watch it below and screencaps are in the gallery.
