Sophia shared, “I was so nervous working with him. He’s such a master. But on the first day on the set, I realized he was just as nervous. If you care and love something, you get nervous. I’m suspicious of people who don’t ever get nervous.”

Gregory Peck and John Wayne. “Gregory Peck was so wonderful and people don’t know how very funny he was,” she said. “It was hard to keep a straight face when working together.” She also worked with John in Legend of the Lost. “My English was not great, the crew would sometimes make fun of me, but John Wayne always would stick up for me,” she said.
