Who Plays Young Sophie on This Is Us?

Before Playing Sophie on This Is Us, Amanda Leighton Was on a Show With Justin Hartley


We haven't seen the last of Sophie on This Is Us! Even though Kevin and Sophie parted ways in present day last season, we're going to learn even more about the early years of their marriage in the coming episodes. While Logan Shroyer has made several appearances as young Kevin over the past four seasons, you're probably wondering about who plays young Sophie.

Actress Amanda Leighton made her first appearance as Kevin's young love all the way back in season one, but it appears like she'll have a pretty big arc in the upcoming episode, "Storybook Love." In addition to her recurring role on This Is Us, Leighton has appeared on Make It or Break It, Pretty Little Liars, Rosewood, and most recently, The Fosters.

Interestingly enough, she also appeared on CBS's soap opera The Young and the Restless just like Justin Hartley (aka adult Kevin). Leighton had a recurring role as Raven from 2013-2014 and Hartley starred as Adam Newman from 2014-2016, though their characters never interacted onscreen. Talk about a crazy coincidence!
