What is Sophie Grace Doing Now? Her Age, Height, Girlfriend

Sophie Grace

The actress Sophie Grace was born on 8th April 2006, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, and is known for her role as Kristy Thomas in the Netflix show “The Baby-Sitters Club”. These days, she and her family are based in Jacksonville and Los Angeles, where Sophie spends time for work. The Philadelphia native has five siblings, and a stepsister named Marissa Zaneski Grace.

Sophie has been passionate about acting since she was just three years old, when she became a regular in school and local plays. Aged ten, she began training professionally until she booked her first role, that of Hadley in the 2018 short “Business as Unusual”. In the same year, Sophie wowed viewers with her acting skills in “Genesis” and “Terror in the Woods”.

Sophie then signed with representation agencies on the West and East coasts, and landed her most popular role to date, that of the aforementioned Kristy. Sophie has also been present at important industry events such as the 40th Annual Young Artist Awards, and the 2019 Young Entertainer Awards. While promoting “Babysitters-Club”, she and her co-stars gave interviews on “The Morning Show” and “Entertainment Tonight”.

Sophie is 5ft 2ins (158cms) tall and weighs about 120lbs (55kgs). As far as we can tell, the Netflix star is single, and currently focusing on her career and charitable deeds, such as her ambassadorship for the HALO Foundation, which ensures that vulnerable youth have access to housing, education and other necessities.

Other causes that Sophie champions are Domestic Violence Awareness Month, about which she recently posted about on Instagram, and Horses for Mental Health. In May 2023, the actress teamed up with journalist Jill Rappaport for the Seen Through Horses campaign, which indirectly helped dozens of non-profit charities incorporate horses into their mental health and personal growth programs, saying ‘The unspoken love between a girl and her horse is one of the loudest things in the world’.

“The Baby-Sitters Club”

The Netflix comedy-drama “The Baby-Sitters Club” was created by Rachel Shukert and based on the Ann M. Martin novel series of the same title. The show premiered on the streaming platform in July 2020, and was renewed for a second season just three months later, following an overwhelmingly positive reception, but was then cancelled in March 2022 after two seasons.

In any case, the critically-acclaimed series won points with audiences, thanks to staying true to its source material, while adding a modern flair to Ann’s story. Following five middle-schoolers who start a babysitting business in a small town in Connecticut, the protagonists were Kristy Thomas, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill and Mary Ann Spier.

Kristy Thomas, Sophie’s character, was the opiniated and feminist president of the club. Claudia, the artistic but academically challenged vice president, was played by Momona Tamada. The mathematically gifted club treasurer, Stacey, was portrayed by Shay Rudolph, and last but not least, actress Malia Baker’s character Mary Ann was Kristy’s best friend and the club’s secretary, who lost her mother as an infant, and grew up with an overprotective father.

The supporting cast was a mix of established actors such as Alicia Silverstone of “Clueless” fame, and rising young talents including Kyndra Sanchez and Anais Lee. Although “Baby-Sitters Club” was nowhere near becoming a cultural phenomenon of the likes of “Stranger Things”, the show had a dedicated fanbase but which wasn’t enough to save it from the chopping block. Netflix’s abrupt cancellation of the series boiled down to disappointing audience numbers, as the show only ranked on the streaming giant’s Top 10 for one week.

Co-Stars

Of the four leads, Shay Rudolph has gone on to have a brilliant career since “Baby-Sitters Club”. The actress was born in California in September 2005, and began acting in 2017 when she played Becky Thatcher in “The Adventures of Thomasina Sawyer”. A year later, she was cast as Maya Flynn in “Lethal Weapon”, followed by roles in the TV movies “Rita” and “Less Than Zero”.

Although Shay hasn’t done much since “Baby-Sitters Club”, that doesn’t matter in the age of social media. With over a million Instagram followers, and various endorsement deals, Shay is proving to be one of Gen Z’s most marketable faces. Current projects include her weekly podcast, which discusses mental health and other pressing topics that affect teens, and collaborations with Diane von Furstenberg and other iconic brands.

In October 2023, Shay sparked rumors that she was in a relationship, when she shared a photo of herself embracing a young man whose face was (apparently carefully) hidden from the camera. Four months prior, she shared photos of herself with her senior prom date, but didn’t tag his Instagram account. For now, we can’t tell if it’s the same person, but Shay is in no rush to clear-up the rumors.

Meanwhile, Momona Tamada was born in September 2006, in Vancouver, British Columbia. The actress is of Japanese descent, and has one younger brother named Hiro; her unique name also has a poetic meaning behind it, as it was reportedly inspired by the beaches of Vancouver.

Momona, who has been dancing competitively since the age of four, made her acting debut playing a young Kimiko Miyashiro in a 2019 episode of “The Boys”. In the same year, she played Kazu’s great-granddaughter in an episode of “The Terror”. Shortly afterwards, she auditioned for the role of Claudia in “Baby-Sitters Club”, and switched to online schooling in order to have enough time to study her character and film.

Momona began making waves in the entertainment industry in 2020, thanks to her portrayal of a young Lara-Jean in “To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You”. The teen romcom was released exclusively on Netflix and received positive reviews, described as a ‘swoon-worthy sequel’. With an $18 million budget and a talented ensemble featuring Noah Centineo and Lara Conder, the “To All The Boys” sequel was good enough for a third movie to be ordered.

In September 2022, Momona shared that she’d been cast as Ty Lee in “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, which has a 2024 release date. A month later, she signed with Echo Lake Entertainment, and since then she has joined the cast of “The Spiderwick Chronicles”.
