BEST ACTRESS

Sofia Jean Gomez

Sofia Jean Gomez won you over the very minute she stepped on stage as Portia in Gulfshore Playhouse’s production of Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice.” It was easy to see why she had so many suitors trying to win her hand: She was smart, witty and had a delightful sparkle about her. She seemed perpetually bemused by life. The actress reminded us of a young Meryl Streep in the way she fully inhabited her character. She made Shakespeare fun.
