My Sister's Keeper is a very touching and dramatic story about how one daughter finds out she was born as genetic match to keep her cancer stricken older sister (played by Sofia) alive. The film is adapted from Jodi Piccoult's novel My Sister's Keeper. It is truly a heart-wrenching story which highlights how the moral and ethical decisions these parents made effected their two daughters. Cameron Diaz plays Sara Fitzgerald, Abigail Breslin plays Anna Fitzgerald, the younger sister and Sofia plays Kate Fitzgerald, the gravely ill sister.
Sofia's award-winning show Medium will change networks from NBC to CBS this Fall. This spooky drama will move to CBS' primetime lineup for Fridays when it changes networks and begins its sixth season. Sofia stars as Ariel Dubois, the daughter of the main character, Allison (Patricia Arquette). The show is an intriguing series based on a real-life story of a psychic who uses her abilities to solve crimes. Sofia was been nominated by the Charitable organization Stand Up To Cancer as one of their celebrity ambassadors for 2009! The ambassadors work together with a team to increase awareness and raise funds for cancer research.
