Back in 2020, Sofia opened up to Soap Opera Digest about the early days of her career. Sofia said that she always knew that she wanted to be an actress. The problem was, she just had to find the right path for her to get to Hollywood.
She told the publication, “I came to California from Sweden on a modeling visa, and you’re very strictly only allowed to work at what you came here for. So when I had a modeling visa, I could only model. I have never been able to do any other jobs here. But when I was in Sweden as a teenager I worked at McDonalds. That was the only day job I ever had.”
