  • A conservative, bourgeois vicar's daughter who reportedly made a concerted effort to avoid errant behavior as a young woman, the refined and genteel British actress Sophia Myles paradoxically found herself typecast, throughout her early years, in rebellious and "edgy" roles. Myles specialized in tackling parts in adaptations of the classics, and was particularly memorable, for example, as Agnes Fleming in Oliver Twist (1999), Kate in Nicholas Nickleby (2000), and Isolde in Tristan & Isolde (2005). With Myles' transition to Hollywood material, she branched out into more conventional buttered-popcorn fare, such as the effects-heavy sci-fi opuses Underworld: Evolution (2006) and Outlander (2008), and similarly essayed one of the main roles on the fantasy television series Moonlight (2007), playing a beautiful investigative reporter whose life is saved by the program's vampiric lead character. In the years to come, Myles would continue to find success on the small screen, particularly with the British series MI-5.

QUOTES FROM Sophia Myles CHARACTERS

Tristan
Isolde, we can't.
Isolde
It's like asking me to stop breathing.
Isolde
I'm yours!
Isolde
Why?
Tristan
There are other things to live for: duty, honor.
Isolde
But they are not life Tristan. They are the shells of life, and empty ones if in the end all they hold are days and days without love. Love is made by God. Ignore it and you suffer as you cannot imagine.
Tristan
Then I will no longer live without it.
Marke
[on the affair] How long?
Marke
How long?
Isolde
Since you thought he was dead. I found him wounded on a beach in Ireland. And I told him my name was Bragnae. So when he came to the tournament at Dunluce to win Doncadh's daughter he didnt realize it was me. All this time, my heart has been his. And I'm sorry. He tried, harder than you can possible imagine because he loves you.
Isolde
And your parents?
Tristan
They also died when I was young.
Isolde
From what?
Tristan
Another different type of Irish kindness
Tristan
Another different type of Irish kindness.
Tristan
[fleeing Ireland] Come with me.
Tristan
Come with me.
Isolde
I can't.
Tristan
Why not?
Isolde
We both know this cannot be, Tristan. We knew it from the start. That doesn't mean it wasn't true, it is.
Isolde
You risked your life to give me to another man.
Tristan
You said your name was Bragnae. Why did you do that?
Isolde
Oh, what have I done? Stop this, please, Tristan, say something.
Tristan
I can't. I won you in my King's name.
Isolde
But I'm your's. You touched me and I you.
Tristan
It doesn't matter.
Isolde
It's the only thing that matters, Tristan. Leave with me, I'll go anywhere!
Tristan
I live in torture, thinking of these moments. With every look he gives you, I get sicker and sicker. There is a burning in me I feel on fire, and there's guilt I can't comidify. Does it make you happy to know that?
Isolde
The Roman Bridge, I can get to it without being seen, and I'd go there any time to be with you.
Isolde
Why does loving you feel so wrong?
Isolde
Know that I love you Tristan. Wherever you go, whatever you see. I will always be with you.
Tristan
You were right. I don't know if life is greater than death. But love was more than either.
Bragnae
(Addressing Donnchadh) Almost done.
Bragnae
[addressing Donnchadh] Almost done.
Isolde
No, not quite. If I am to be a present I should be fully wrapped!
Bragnae
Where are we going?
Isolde
Away!
Bragnae

Isolde
If things were different, if we lived in a place without duty, would you be with me?
Tristan

Isolde
