BEST ACTRESS

Sofia Jean Gomez

Sofia Jean Gomez wins you over the very minute she appears on stage as Portia in Gulfshore Playhouse’s production of Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice.” You can see why she has so many suitors trying to win her hand: she’s smart, she’s witty, she has a sparkle about her. She seems perpetually bemused by life.

The actress is reminiscent of a young Meryl Streep in the way she fully inhabits her character. And, she makes Shakespeare fun!
