Sofia Black-D'Elia

Congratulations to Sofia Black D’Elia on her role as Sabrina on The Mick on FOX

Sofia on The MickIt’s no secret that FOX has been knocking it out of the park with high-quality comedies for a few years now. Between Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and The Last Man On Earth the network has assembled a wrecking crew of hilarious shows anchoring their comedy programming — and will soon be adding another show to their ranks. The Mick aims to bring the profane, irreverent attitude that star Kaitlin Olson perfected on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia to network television — but she’s not the only TV veteran in the cast. If you’ve been paying attention to television in the past few years, chances are you’ve seen Sofia Black-D’Elia, the actor playing Sabrina on The Mick, before.

Black-D’Elia may seem young, but...Read More…
