Sophie is a quiet and unassuming beauty who has taken to celibacy, right around the time she took up with Arthur. She is extremely well read, particularly in the Russian classics, and comes across as an ingenue from a Chekhov play. Despite her seemingly innocent and virtuous nature, there is something about her that you can't quite put your finger on. At times, she flashes a coy smile as if she were hiding a secret.
Liesl grew up in a small town, in Australia's NSW, called Bellingen, where she spent her time studying ballet and modern dance while also learning to play the piano and violin. Upon turning 18, Liesl moved to Sydney to pursue a career in modeling, which quickly took her to Paris and later to New York, where she was featured in multiple campaigns. During this time, she studied acting at NIDA, Lee Strasberg, and Stella Adler while performing in various theatrical productions in Australia. The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks reunites Liesl with Peter Glanz, with whom she worked on the short film A Relationship in Four Days.
