Sophia Grace and Rosie were 2 girls from Essex whose lives changed forever after Ellen discovered their YouTube cover of Nicki Minaj’s SuperBass and featured them on her show back in late 2011.

Since that performance they have gone on to become The Ellen Show regulars and fan favourites.

They have covered red carpet events for Ellen, met lots of their idols, ‘written’ their own book, hosted Tea Time with Sophia Grace and Rosie, and have even appeared on the Nickleodeon show, Sam and Cat.

The last time the girls were on the show, Ellen asked them what they’d like to do next. The girls said they’d like to be in a movie. Ellen said she would work on it.

Well, no sooner do they mention it that it happens!

Sophia Grace has landed a role in the big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical, Into the Woods and her co-stars are none other than Hollywood greats Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp!

According to imdb.com, Into the Woods tells the story of, “A witch who conspires to teach important lessons to various characters of popular children’s stories including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel”.

Sophia Grace has landed the role of little Red Riding Hood. Streep will play the witch and Depp the wolf. They will be joined by Emily Blunt (the Baker’s wife), Christine Baranski (Cinderella’s Step mother), Chris Pine (Cinderella’s Prince) and Anna Kendrick (Cinderella), and directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Times)

Ellen tweeted (@TheEllenShow), “Sophia Grace is starring in the movie ‘Into the Woods’ w/ Meryl Streep! The role of a lifetime. Also big for Sophia.”

There is no word yet on whether Sophia Grace’s partner and cousin Rosie will also be  trying her hand at acting on the big screen.

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
