Talented Sophie ‘filled house with joy and happiness’
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.”
