“Alongside hard work and focus, confidence and attitude are the key to success. Think positively and good things will happen – manifestation. Treat others how you would like to be treated and be nice to everyone you meet! It’s a lot about who you know, not always what you know – but that’s important too!”
30 year old Sophie Kasaei comes from a strong and loving Geordie / Middle Eastern blended family. Born in South Shields to a true Geordie Mum and entrepreneurial Persian Dad, Sophie’s upbringing existed around close friends and family, which has instilled strong friendship and family values and Sophie’s sense of self confidence, warm caring nature and love of life in general.
Sophie was a popular grounded young girl and did well at school, going on to qualify in Hair and Beauty. Sophie shot to fame in the massive MTV show Geordie Shore in May 2011 and won over the nation until she left for pastures new in 2019. The loveable pint-sized bundle of joy burst onto our screens from Series 1, bringing the fun, hilarity, drama, sadness and madness. Sophie’s warm and engaging character shone through as she forged lifelong friendships with her cast mates and soon became the nation’s sweetheart.
Since being on TV, Sophie’s world has become the stuff that many young girls’ dreams are made of. She has travelled the world, seeing and conquering things she could have only ever imagined, including attending the star studded VMA’s rubbing shoulders with Global superstars. Her fame has built her an ever growing loyal fan base, and enabled her to explore various business opportunities. As a result Sophie has been able to give back to her beloved family and include them on her amazing journey wherever possible.
Sophie’s warm and enigmatic screen presence has led her into several presenting roles both on screen at many high profile events, and this is an area that she will definitely be pursuing long term.
As 2019 draws to a close and Sophie turns 30, her career is thriving. Having left Geordie Shore earlier in 2019 and since bought her first house, Sophie is back on screen in several major MTV shows, including presenting MTV Cribs round up 2019 and Best Reality Moments 2019, as well as 2 big show titles in early 2020, which will cement her on our screens for a long while yet!
Midst the organised chaos, Sophie is also opening her first Hair salon in Newcastle city centre at the end of 2019. Cheekily named ‘Blow Me’, Sophie has grand plans for the first outlet in her salon empire, with a lavish opening planned. The first of many more successes to come, and well deserved after much blood sweat and tears, and a large amount of hard work and dedication!
Sophie has a couple of hidden talents… an amazing singing voice, and can speak Farsi – the native language of her Persian roots. Sophie’s hobbies include travelling, meeting new people and discovering new cultures – living her best life! Her life goals are to build a successful business empire whilst still being able to travel the world, and in the not too distant future create a loving family and live happily in the sun!
