Sophia Jane Myles ( /səˈfaɪ.ə/; born 18 March 1980) is an English film and television actress. Myles was born in London. Her mother, Jane (née Allan), works in educational publishing, and her father, Peter R. Myles, is a retired Church Of England vicar in Isleworth, West London. Her maternal grandmother was Russian, and she refers to herself as "half-Welsh, half-Russian". She grew up in Notting Hill, where her father served at the church of St. George the Martyr, and she attended Fox Primary School. At the age of eleven, Myles moved with her family to Isleworth and attended the Green School. Following success at her A-levels, she had been planning to accept a conditional place to study philosophy at Cambridge, but chose to pursue an acting career after being spotted by Julian Fellowes in a school play. Since 1996, Myles has appeared in a number of American and British films and television productions. In 2001, she got a small role alongside Johnny Depp as his on-screen wife, Victoria Abberline, in the thriller film From Hell. She had a supporting role in the 2003 film Underworld and its sequel Underworld: Evolution (in a brief flashback scene).
