Sophie  is bi-racial. Her story is more common than you might think (see photo) She was the star of Skin a true story about a South African woman who was born to two “white” South African parents. The movie was okay and Sophie did it justice.

 Jasmine Guy is also half Jewish but African American dad. Sophie’s dad was Nigerian and abandoned them when she was five. The big deal is that she is Jewish by race and religion. Her mom is Askenazi Jew (European Jew) and was raised in the Jewish faith.

She has two new films “Skin” which is a real life tale, and she is also playing Mrs. Mandela in BBC series by same name.
