About Esther

Esther Sophia grew up in Vienna, Austria where she was involved in the arts from an early age on.

Right after school she worked for PULS TV, gaining experience in front and behind the camera, refined her skills at the Actors Space Berlin, until she moved to NYC in 2013 where she obtained her Master of Fine Arts at the Actors Studio Drama School.

During her 5 year stay in NYC she worked as an actress and performer for the ‘Box Collective’, appeared in numerous Off-Broadway plays and acted in various independent film productions. She will be performing in theater with the Blaue Blume in Berlin and this summer at the fringe Festival in Edinburgh. She has just relocated to Europe and is excited to finally dive more into TV and film.

Esther Sophia wuchs in Wien, in einer künstlerischen Gemeinschaft auf, wo sie schon früh zu schauspielern begann. Sie hat als Videojournalistin bei Puls 4 gearbeitet und im Actors Space Berlin ihre schauspielerischen Fähigkeiten vertieft.

2013 zog sie nach New York und erlangte ihren Master of Fine Arts (MFA) an der Actors Studio Drama School. In NYC wurde sie Ensemble Mitglied des Box Collectives. Sie hat in einigen Stücken Off Broadway, als auch in Independent Filmproduktionen und Filmpiloten gespielt. Sie wird mit der Blauen Blume in Berlin, sowie auch diesen Sommer auf dem Fringe Festival in Edinburgh Theater spielen. Esther ist vor kurzem zurück nach Europa übersiedelt und freut sich sehr, sich hier nun auch mehr auf TV und Film zu konzentrieren.

 
Her lithe physicality unites body and voice; she speaks the Shakespeare firmly & without strain; meaning is lodged in the shape and softness of her breath.

When Esther Sophia came to my Classes in NYC, her work was powerful and poised... When last June I saw her in the great production of “ Last Life” A guest I brought to the theatre with me and a connoisseur of good work, asked me “why is this actress not on Broadway”? “I know, But give her time “ I said. In that production of “Last Life” I saw Esther Sophia’s raw power and intelligence on that stage and realized where she can go... I said to my friend “she reminds me of Marlene Dietrich
