Child stars often find that they don’t make it into Hollywood as adults. Some simply don’t have what it takes. Others don’t have much of a desire to be a star into adulthood. Some don’t have the mental capacity to make it any longer in this business. It seems that it’s more common than not for child stars to grow up with a lot of issues they cannot seem to work through, and it’s sad each time we see an adult who was a child star break down and seemingly never seem to get their lives back in order. However, child star Sofia Lama has been making a name for herself in the acting business since childhood, and she’s well into her adult life. Who is she?
1. She is in Her 30s
Sofia Lama was born on June 9, 1987. She was born with the name Sofia Lama Stamatiades. Her last name is Greek because she is of both Greek and Mexican descent. She does not use her surname in her acting business, but she does use her other two names.
2. She is from Mexico
She was born and raised in Mexico. She is of Greek descent by way of one of her own parents, though. She is a woman who was born and raised in a place called Puebla, Mexico, and it’s been her home most of her life. She spent many years working there, and she spent many years living there before moving away.
3. She is a Disney Star
One of her most memorable and amazing jobs was that of a Disney star. She was in several Disney channel hits in Mexico. The country has its own version of the Disney Channel, and she is one of the former kids who starred in several of the works that the network put out in her own home country.
4. She Was a Theater Actor
She was only 18 when she left home and went to the city. She headed to Mexico City, and she pursued work on stage. Being a theater actor is not an easy job, but it is one that she felt good about. She enjoyed that time in her life, and she put a lot of work and a lot of effort into what she was doing there.
5. She Works Hard
There was a time she had to portray a living person in a movie, and she followed that person around for many weeks to learn more about her. She was cast as Maria Celeste, who is a journalist, and she shadowed her, she watched countless hours of YouTube videos of her online to help her learn to be the journalist, and she really did put in the work.
6. She Likes to Know Her Character
One of the many things that makes her a unique actress in her business is her desire to be different. She likes to know the character that she is playing, and she likes to know them inside and out. She is not happy to just see a character and assume it is one way. She wants to know the character both inside and out, and she wants to be that character as best as she can.
7. Her Character is a Fan
When Lama portrayed the television host in a movie, Celeste was more than thrilled with the job the young actress did. She loved how she was properly captured and how the young star really did seem to get her in a way that most people do not. She loved watching herself being played by someone else.
8. She is a Story Teller
She does not call herself an actress. She calls herself a storyteller. At the end of the day, she’s not wrong, either. That’s what she does. She tells a story, and she tells stories well.
9. She Loves a Cat
So many people are always out there being dog lovers and proud of it. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. However, there are many people out there who also love a cat. Crazy cat ladies, for instance? While Sofia Lama is not a crazy cat lady in that she has a dozen of them at home, she is a cat lover. They are her animal of choice.
10. She’s Private
Her work life puts her in the spotlight often, and she uses her time at home as her own time. She does share with her fans, but she also tends to keep her very private moments as private as possible. Those moments are for her alone, and she has no problem with that.
