With some peo­ple, you can just tell they are hid­ing some­thing sin­is­ter from the mo­ment you rst lay eyes on them. Wealthy so­cialite So­nia Stevens is just such a per­son.

The day So­nia (Si­grid Thorn­ton) steps into Went­worth Cor­rec­tional Cen­tre in up­com­ing episodes of Went­worth, the other pris­on­ers can tell there is some­thing about her that just is not right.

It’s much more than the fact she is an el­e­gant and so­phis­ti­cated busi­ness dy­namo be­hind a cos­met­ics em­pire. That’s all part of im­age So­nia has built up as a shield to keep peo­ple both guess­ing about her, and as far away as pos­si­ble.

And that is just where she wants the other pris­on­ers to re­main once she is ad­mit­ted to the prison, on re­mand for the sus­pected mur­der of her best friend. The po­lice have gath­ered enough cir­cum­stan­tial ev­i­dence to charge her with mur­der, and she is now await­ing trial.

“The thing about So­nia is you just know with her that not all is as it seems,” Si­grid Thorn­ton tells TV SOAP. “She is very dif­fer­ent to the other pris­on­ers and is pre­pared to stand out from the crowd as an out­sider.

“She is not in­tim­i­dated at all by her new en­vi­ron­ment and is pre­pared to go along for the ride for as long as she must. So­nia re­gards this re­mand stay as only tem­po­rary – al­most like a pass­ing fas­ci­na­tion.”

And fas­ci­nated is what the other women are by this un­usual crea­ture who breezes through the tough-as-nails prison with such an aloof at­ti­tude. So­nia is WENT­WORTH
