Sophie Cookson (born 1989 or 1990) is an English actress best known for her roles as secret agent Roxanne "Roxy" Morton / Lancelot in Kingsman: The Secret Service and its 2017 sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, as well as Christine Keeler in the BBC One drama series The Trial of Christine Keeler.
Cookson grew up in Sussex and later in Suffolk, where she attended Woodbridge School. She has been involved in singing and musical theatre since she was a child. After being part of a theatre company that had toured Japan, she decided to quit acting to study art history and Arabic at the University of Edinburgh. She dropped out shortly after to pursue an acting career and attended the Oxford School of Drama for three years, graduating in 2013.
Career While still in her senior year at Oxford Drama School, she was cast as Grace Mohune in the Sky 1 miniseries Moonfleet, based on the J. Meade Falkner novel of the same name. In early 2014, she played Millie Lancaster in the German television network ZDF's film adaptation of Rosamunde Pilcher's novel Unknown Heart. The same year, she landed her first major film role, taking over for Emma Watson as secret agent Roxanne "Roxy" Morton / Lancelot in Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on the comic book The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Cookson was also cast as the female lead in Lee Tamahori's action epic Emperor, about a young woman seeking vengeance for her father's execution by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, opposite Adrien Brody as the titular Emperor. The movie was finished and screened at Cannes in 2017 but its release has been held up by legal challenges.
In 2016, she played the female huntsman Pippa in the film The Huntsman: Winter's War. Beginning in June 2017, she starred as troubled singer Sidney Pierce in the Netflix series Gypsy. However, the series was cancelled in August after only one season due to negative reviews and low ratings, despite the fact that a second season was already in the works. She appeared in the horror film The Crucifixion in July, playing a journalist investigating a lethal exorcism performed on a nun, and in September of the same year, she reprised her role as Roxy Morton in The Secret Service sequel, The Golden Circle, while also appearing in a musical short for the song Pleader by British indie rock band alt-J.
In 2018, she co-starred with Orlando Bloom in Trafalgar Studios' production of Killer Joe as Dottie.
On the set of Red Joan in 2017, she met actor Stephen Campbell Moore. Cookson and Moore allegedly started dating in November 2018. They have one child together, who will be born in 2020.
