Sophie Marie White, married with three kids, is a native of South Louisiana. She draws from her varied experiences as a filmmaker, Director of Photography, Chiropractor, EMT, firefighter, race car driver, and boxing promoter to inspire her acting. She began acting a little over a year ago and since was cast in several feature films including Hummingbird and We All Think We Are Special. Sophie was also cast in Tell Me Your Secrets and Chicago Med, in a guest-starring role, for television. Sophie is a transgender female, and with her family, they are making their way through the complicated transition process. She brings a unique voice that is extremely under-represented in the film and television industry. The story Hummingbird is inspired by her transition process and confronts suicide -- one of the most significant issues of the transgender community. Movies often depict that once a transgender makes it to the point of reaching out for help, their struggle is over. Her personal experience defies this stereotype, which is only the beginning of a much longer and difficult process. To be honest, after her first reach out for help, things became more intense and arduous. According to Sophie, “The first attempt can be a cry for help. The second is a true attempt.” One of the biggest things that have helped her transition is sharing her stories and her struggles with others. While each journey is different, most stories share many common themes. However, the film community portrays the transgender female as a person wearing a dress. Her transition has never been about a dress; it’s about how the world sees her and, most importantly, about how she views herself. Her desire to share her journey will hopefully show others that there is hope, and they are not alone. As always, love, light, and peace.
