Of Indian ancestry, Sofia is the daughter of Zammurrad Hayat and his wife, Suriya. Growing up, Sofia experienced physical and emotional abuse, which led to her working in bars as a dancer in her teens. She was spotted by a cousin who reported her to her parents, which further led to her being locked in, and punished and threatened by her mother.
Luckily, it all sorted out for Sofia and she obtained a BA degree in Music and Performing Arts, while she also studied acting for seven years, during which time she got a hold of Meisner Technique.
Sofia launched her career in 2000, working as a television presenter for Zee Music TV Sky, and after a while diverted into acting, but waited until 2008 to have her first major role, featuring in the comedy film “Cash and Curry”, starring Ameet Chana, Ronny Jhutti and Pooja Shah. She continued her career with a one-off appearance in the highly-acclaimed TV thriller series “Jonathan Creek” in 2010, and then played Rani in the musical “Naachle London” two years later. She was Carol in the drama film “Diary of a Butterfly”, one of her most prominent roles, and portrayed Sophia in the musical “Bollywood Carmen” in 2013, with Preeya Kalidas, Abhay Deol and Stephen Rahman Hughes in the lead roles. In recent years, Sofia appeared in the films “Six X” (2016), and “Askar 2” (2017), while she is now working on the film “Mr. Doula”, in which she will star next to Tiffany Phillips and Bone Crusher, scheduled for release late in 2018.
Aside from acting, Sofia has also worked as a model, appearing in a number of popular fashion magazines, including GQ, Vogue, and FHM, while she was also named the “Curvy Icon” by Vogue Italia in 2012, which also increased her net worth and popularity as well. Sofia’s net worth also benefited from her book “Dishonored”, released in 2009 by Blake publishing.
When it comes to her personal life, Sofia has been married to Vlad Stancescu since April 2017. The couple became engaged after just one week of dating, and soon after decided to exchange their vows. Interestingly, for whatever reason Sofia became a nun for a brief time in 2016, adopting the name Gaia Sofia Mother, but obviously that didn’t last long.
