Sofia Oxenham was raised in Devon and Trebetherick, Cornwall, the third of four siblings born to a Cornish mother and an Australian father. She was first drawn to acting at age twelve, due to her older brother’s interest in performing. After several years of school plays and drama lessons, she left school to pursue an arts education at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. Next, Oxenham attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, graduating in 2017.
Oxenham’s television roles have included Tess Tregidden on BBC’s Poldark and Eydis on Netflix’s Cursed, as well as parts on Doc Martin, Dracula, Grantchester, and For Life. She has also appeared in the film Running Mates and in several stage plays. Says Oxenham of her reading of “Names,” “I was really drawn to the story behind the poem: trying and wanting to express something but being unable to do so.”
