Many of you will know Sophie Hambleton from her role as “Carol” on Westside, the popular prequel to the iconic New Zealand TV show, Outrageous Fortune. That’s how I knew Sophie. I also knew her as “Nora” in an amazing adaptation of Ibsen’s famous play, A Doll’s House.
This this was my first time meeting Sophie. We sat and chatted through her life and work – from growing up with a famous acting father (Peter Hambleton) to being bitten by the bug in her own right, the training, the slog, the early roles, and then from stage to screen and back again.
We spent a bit of time talking Westside, sure. Also A Doll’s House. And we previewed her upcoming turn in Burn Her at Circa Theatre.
It was a great chat. I’d been a fan of Sophie’s work – it was my great pleasure to finally meet her and share this conversation.
I hope you like it too.
Here now is episode 175 of Sweetman Podcast – my chat with actor Sophie Hambleton.
