Sophie Simmons, daughter of Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, was born on July 7, 1992 in Los Angeles, California. She studied at Wildwood School in Los Angeles and is described by her teachers as an outstanding student. She began her career starring with her family on Family Jewels, which aired for six years and solidified her presence as a household name. Following lead roles in Shannon & Sophie, and A Very Satan Christmas, Sophie went on to audition for X-Factor, making her musical talent public.
Late last year, Sophie recorded a cover of the 90s classic “Kiss Me,” with Rebel, which was released via Republic Records. Additionally, Sophie self-released a cover of Hozier’s “Take Me to Church,” as well as a cover of “Ego.” Both tracks were produced by Wildcard and have been incredibly well-received in the music community.
Sophie has made a name for herself apart from her rock and roll roots. Not limiting herself to one aspect of the entertainment industry, she has become an established actress, model, host, musician and activist.
Just having finished a lingerie campaign for Adore Me, Sophie has also become a prominent voice for plus size modeling in Hollywood. Sophie also runs a child abuse advocacy center called Sophie’s Place in her second home: Vancouver, Canada. She is also the host of Refinery29’s newest series, Body Image School, and the Editor in Chief of her anti-pop-culture magazine; No Filter.
At only 23, she has already been featured as a guest on nationally acclaimed shows such as Today and Good Morning America. Sophie has many more exciting projects on the way, including a live performance at the Kiss Kruise this upcoming November.
