Hailing from Tonypandy in the Rhondda Valleys, Welsh singer and actress Sophie Evans came to prominence in 2010 when she was picked from over 10,000 hopefuls to appear on the hugely popular BBC series Over The Rainbow. After making it to the final at only 17, Sophie was named runner-up and was subsequently chosen by Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber to don the legendary ruby slippers and play the alternate Dorothy in selected performances of The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium in 2011. In February 2012 Sophie was handed the role of Dorothy full time, become a leading lady of the West End at 18. Read more here.
