Sophie Lorain started out in the performing arts while studying at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. Since then, she has taken the stage several times, working with the biggest names in Quebec theater. In cinema, she has worked with many directors and has made a name for herself on television through her roles in the hit series Scoop, Urgence, Omerta, Fortier and Au secours de Béatrice. She has won ten Artis awards and has been nominated several times for the Prix Gémeaux, winning multiple awards.

She plays the first role of the Plan B series (Season 2) which has been adapted for France and Belgium. Recently, we can see her in The Sketch Artistst (Club Illico) and Way Over Me (Crave).

In addition to her acting skills, Sophie has directed for film (Les grandes chaleurs, Slut in a good way) and for television (La galère, Nos étés, Fortier, Un homme mort and Nouvelle Adresse) in the last several years, and recently directed her first TV project with ALSO, A Family Affair (Radio-Canada).
