The Bare Magazine: Sophia Lillis

Sophia Lillis

Every now and then the stars align. Such was the case the other day in Brooklyn when we caught up with actress Sophia Lillis right before she was scheduled to take off for Ireland to film “Dungeons and Dragons” (alongside Chris Pine and Hugh Grant). On hand were master photographer Christopher Mellevold, to document the occasion, and Bare founder and makeup artist, Tina Turnbow, to tend to Sofia’s creamy complexion and bouncy waves. The backdrop? The cool Brooklyn boutique of Hannoh Wessel, one of Sophia’s favorite designers. For this special reunion, the normally makeup-free actress was happy to turn up the intensity of her look—and let us in on her artistic process.

The Bare Magazine: What have been some of your favorite on-screen looks? Do you ever miss your super-short hair?

Sophia Lillis: I really liked my costume in “Gretel and Hansel.” Leonie Prendergast, the costume designer, and her team designed, crafted and sewed all of the costumes from scratch. There was this hat they made that was perfect but only got to be in one scene, but I loved it so much they gave it to me to take it home. My hair on that production was the best it’s ever been as well, cropped short and darker than my natural color. My hair is pretty long now; I figured I’d take this opportunity of not working to grow it out and let it go back to normal, but I’ve been itching to cut it recently … so we’ll see.

Bare: How would you sum up your style? Do you see it evolving and how?

SL: I like to be comfortable basically. I dress up from time to time, if I’m going out or meeting up with people. I like to shop at vintage stores a lot. But its a bit of a mishmash — certain things make me happy, like suspenders, cool hats and definitely pockets.

Bare: If you were given the chance to play a legendary actor who would it be and why?

SL: One of my favorite actresses when I was young was Giulietta Masina. I always thought her face stood out from the rest, har reactions were so interesting. Especially in “La Strada.” Those scenes where she performed her clown routine. She smiled and marched and blew her horn and you couldn’t help but smile. When she cried, you cried. I realized her acting in general reminds me of a mime. Her face was strange to me, she was always expressing herself with her face or her hands. No matter what she was doing, you couldn’t help but stare. I would have to learn Italian though, or at least the accent.

Bare: You’re about to travel abroad to film “Dungeons and Dragons.” What bare essentials will be in your travel bag?

SL: I’m actually packing as I’m writing this — I’m bringing mostly comfy clothes and workout clothes — I’m going to be in costume a lot so I don’t have to bring much. Maybe a few jackets. I’ve got some face soap and maybe some makeup in case I’m feeling up for going “out on the town.” I also have to quarantine when I get there, so I’m bringing my lil guitar (thanks ianowt guys), some books, and maybe a puzzle.

Bare: As an actor, do you find the process of hair, wardrobe and makeup helps get you into character? Are you anticipating an interesting costume or makeup look for D & D? We are at the edge of our seats…

SL: Yes absolutely! I can do whatever I can in order to prepare for my character before I travel. But nothing’s for sure until I get in the clothes and makeup. Can’t tell you too much about the D&D character and costume just yet, but I’m really excited about working on this project. I think it’s going to be a very fun character to play with 😉

Normally I’m not someone who asks money from people, so that is NOT what this is. Donating means that it is OPTIONAL. I’ve been getting a lot compliments about this site and all the great content. Thank you so much for all of your warm words, it makes it so much easier to keep this fansite as updated as possible!

As many of you may already know it isn’t easy to keep a fansite like this one updated with the best and most recent content. Up to this point I’ve always paid for all the HQ picture content in the gallery! As well as the domain name and the hosting.
