Height: 5'6 1/2"
Hair: dark brown/black
Occupation: Former actress and con artist
Sophie Devereaux is British actress and accomplished
grifter with a taste for art theft. Sophie is oddly
enough a talentless actress, appearing campy and
over-the-top in her work on stage. But as a grifter
who is one on one with people, she effortlessly
plays the role needed to draw the team's target into
the con. Particularly adept at the use of accents
and multi-lingual, Sophie is seen to portray, among
many others, a German athlete, a Southern horse
broker, an Indian business executive, an American
television producer and a reporter from New Zealand.
She can speak six languages and fake twelve more.
Sophie also has a collection of aliases,
including her identity with the team as Sophie
Devereaux, but has never revealed her real name. She
has a long history with Nate, dating back at least
ten years to when he pursued her with IYS as an art
thief. At some point, they recognized they are
attracted to one another, but have never acted on
it, leaving Sophie alternately frustrated, angry and
disappointed. Nate's drinking is also a source of
conflict between them throughout the first season.
After the team disbands in Los Angeles,
Sophie is instrumental in reuniting them in Boston.
Midway through Season 2, she has begun to question
whether she's lost herself in the names she's used
and the characters she's played, and has embarked on
a journey of self-discovery, temporarily leaving the
team with another well-practiced grifter, Tara Cole.
In many episodes afterward she is seen via webcam
giving advice to all of the other remaining
characters at separate times, showing that she still
plays a vital part of the team, before finally
returning in the second season finale as a backup
plan for their con.
