Tal­ented So­phie ‘filled house with joy and hap­pi­ness’

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

SO­PHIE Spencer was a tal­ented ac­tress and singer who started per­form­ing when she was just two.

The for­mer Up­ton Pri­ory Pri­mary and Fal­li­b­roome Academy pupil, who had a dad Peter, mum Lena and broth­ers Scott and Alex, dreamed of be­ing a film star and at­tended Manch­ester School of Act­ing where she starred in nu­mer­ous films.

The col­lege has set up a schol­ar­ship in her mem­ory.

So­phie recorded songs by Sam Smith and Paloma Faith three weeks be­fore her death and they were played at her fu­neral.

A fund set up in her hon­our for the char­ity When You Wish Upon A Star has raised more than £4,000 and her legacy also in­cludes a per­form­ing arts award at Fal­li­b­roome.

MADS Theatre is do­ing a spe­cial show of Aladdin in her hon­our.

Her dad Peter told an in­quest into her death: “Ever since she could walk So­phie was singing and danc­ing. She was a won­der­ful singer. She cared about oth­ers and it was her dream to do well and look af­ter those less for­tu­nate.

“Things were start­ing to hap­pen for So­phie. She’d had a lot of knock backs but had a singing agent and was find­ing her niche in act­ing.

“So­phie filled our house with joy and hap­pi­ness.”
