Hi, Aadi here. Today I’m chatting with Sophie Metcalf from The Perfect Blindside.
[Aadi] Tell me a little about yourself.
[Sophie] Hi, I’m Sophie. Sophie Metcalf. Ordinary small town girl. I’m a junior in high school and have a best friend named Kate. Oh, and my faith is really important to me. I have this belief we all have gifts and talents to share with others. By the way I want to be a reporter some day. We should chat about interviews and stuff when we’re done here.
[Aadi] Tell me about where you live? Who do you live with?
[Sophie] So, I live in Silver Springs, Colorado with my parents and little brother. It’s a great town – although life changed a lot when Jake arrived. In fact, my life changed drastically when he moved to town. Don’t ask how, let’s just say my feelings for Jake are complicated. I mean everyone knows how unbelievably talented and good-looking he is – including him. He can be frustrating and annoying but I’ve also seen another side of him. I’m sorry, when I get nervous I start to ramble.
[Aadi] What annoys you more than anything?
[Sophie] I hate when people aren’t genuine and think they’re better than everyone else. Which honestly, was part of my frustration with Jake.
[Aadi] What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?
[Sophie] That would be my favorite place in the world – Claim Jumper’s Creek. It’s this peaceful pond and creek near my house with the mountains in the background. It’s always been my go-to spot to think and get away from things. I’m a bit of a photography nut so I love to take photos there and all the scenic places around where we live.
[Aadi] What kind of weather is your favorite?
[Sophie] Really I love every season, they’re all so beautiful. But the best of all is the first snow fall of the year. Our town always celebrates with this awesome dance called the Snow Ball.
[Aadi] Do you have pets?
[Sophie] Yes, I have a dog named Everest. She’s a labradoodle who happens to be an excellent judge of character.
[Aadi] Who would play you in movie?
[Sophie] A movie? Oh geez. Well, I was once told I looked like Hermoine Granger, so maybe Emma Watson? Although, she’s a bit too old now. Jake would be perfect to play himself – who else could do all those amazing tricks of his. But if I had to choose someone there is this one actor/model who looks just like him – Wade Poezyn. He’d probably do a good job.
[Sophie] By the way, thanks so much for making me feel so comfortable. This was my first interview and I was really nervous. After all the craziness of the last few months we’ve had a lot of reporters coming around wanting interviews but usually they’re only interested in talking to Jake, which is just fine with me, I’m more of a behind the scenes kind of girl. But this was really fun.
[Aadi] It was great having you here. Feel free to stop by anytime.
