The 2014 Miss Golden Globe winner, Sosie Bacon, is a well-known American actress who made her debut in the 2005 film “Loverboy”, and has since appeared in many acclaimed projects such as the series “13 Reasons Why” portraying Skye Miller.
Age, Early Life, and Education Background
Sosie Ruth Bacon was born under the Pisces zodiac sign on 15 March 1992, in Los Angeles, California, which makes her 30 years old as of 2022. She was born to the renowned actor, Kelvin Bacon, famous for his roles in the films “Mystic River,” “A Few Good Men,” and “Apollo 13”, and his wife, actress, director and producer, Kyra Sedgewick, who is known well for appearing in the series “The Closer.” Sosie was brought up together with her elder brother, the actor and composer Travis Bacon, who is also a member of the Idiot Box band. Despite her parents being successful entertainers, they didn’t want her to pursue acting, as her father didn’t believe that the fast-paced Hollywood life was good for her, and that children weren’t supposed to work anyway.
Sosie went to the prestigious Riverdale Country School situated in The Bronx, New York City, where she began acting as a member of her school’s drama club. She matriculated to Brown University in 2010, and also studied at Collaborative Arts Movement 21 (CAP21) musical theater company.

Career Beginnings and Film Appearances
Sosie started acting officially in 2005, in the film “Loverboy” which was directed by her father Kelvin, playing the child version of Emily – her mother played the adult version of the same character.

Her next film appearance came in 2014, when she was selected to play Frances in the comedy “Wishin’ and Hopin’”, performing together with Chevy Chase and Molly Ringwald.
