If you are dreaming of growing a successful career in the film industry, we can all certainly agree with the popular opinion that it’s no easy feat. But it can also be a rewarding journey living the dream life of a famous actor, actress, producer, or director, jumping from one plane to the other. The great news is that every dream can be attainable regardless of your present situation. Like any other profession, it demands both hard work and dedication to overcome the many hurdles that might come your way to reach success.
Young actress Victoria Sophia is a classic example that you can also make it to the top, a significant reason you should never give up on your dreams. Victoria is a born actress and one of the hottest rising stars making her mark. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Sophia has grown to become a top talent in various films. Her Cuban and Puerto Rican parents played a significant role in shaping her personality, standing out as a thrilling and comical character.
“I love the realness and the character I exude because of my humble upbringing. I come from a very diverse family and love how ethnically ambiguous I appear to be,” Sophia adds.
A unique talent, Victoria is already attracting roles in big films with features in movies such as Pain & Gain, Incision, Fade Away, and Kingdom of Gladiators: The Tournament. Being in these films was a significant milestone in her career and opened the way for more roles. They have also allowed her to work with other diverse talents, from regular cast members to producers and directors. This leaves her with vast experience and a growing skill set as a young talent to watch out for in the coming years.
Even though she has faced different challenges, Sophia terms her father’s death as the biggest hurdle she has faced. “The loss of my father when I was 18 was most difficult for me. With the dedicated love of my mother and brother, I gained strength that helped me strive to become a provider to both of them in my father’s absence,” Sophia explains.
A successful self-made actress, Sophia wants everyone to believe that they can achieve everything they set their minds to. You only need to find what works best for you and believe in your abilities. More importantly, never give up. Sometimes you feel like everything is not working, but that’s never reason enough to give up. Instead, constantly innovate while also sticking to the plan, as ‘failing to plan is planning to fail.’ Also, remember that only things that require hard, consistent work to acquire will stay with you forever.
Sophia’s dream is to work with some of the industry’s top directors like James Cameron, Baz Luhrmann, and Martin Scorsese. She is also passionate about raising awareness to help abused children and would love to open a charity for children who have suffered from physical and emotional abuse.
