Sosie Bacon Biography

Sosie Bacon (Sosie Ruth Bacon) is an American actress and the daughter of actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. During her childhood Bacon was largely isolated from her parents’ careers. Her first role was in the movie Loverboy playing the 10-year-old Emily, which was directed by her father.

The producer of The Closer, James Duff, was compelled by Bacon’s performance in Loverboy to suggest that she portray the role of Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson’s niece Charlie in the fifth season of the show. Although her parents were opposed to her being involved in acting, she accepted the role and appeared in four episodes together with her mother, who played the role of Chief Johnson. In the TV series 13 Reasons Why, Bacon portrayed the character of Skye Miller.

Sosie Bacon Parents

Sosie Bacon was born to parents Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Bacon’s mother gave birth shortly after filming Miss Rose White and named Bacon after the movie’s art director, Sosie Hublitz. During the filming of The Closer, her mother would spend half of the year in Los Angeles. Bacon used to stay in Manhattan with her father and brother which made her mother claim as a contribution factor to bond between Bacon and her father.

Sosie Bacon Career

While directing Loverboy, Kevin Bacon decided to cast his daughter Sosie in the film. After being asked about the choice to cast his daughter, Kevin said that he made the decision as a director, not as a father, because he believed his daughter was perfect for the role and that Sosie was cool and kind of got it out of her system. She said, that was fun now that he was going back to school. Sosie played the main character Emily in a flashback, while the adult Emily was portrayed by her mother Kyra Sedgwick. As Emily, Sosie sang an a cappella version of the David Bowie song “Life on Mars?” that was described in a review from The New York Times as “grotesquely funny.” Travis Bacon, her brother was cast in a smaller role in the film. Kevin praised Sosie’s work on Loverboy, but said he would not be encouraging her to pursue acting further.

Bacon’s performance in Loverboy is what James Duff, the producer of The Closer, has said first prompted him to suggest that she begin acting. Duff had wanted to write Bacon into the series since she was twelve years old according to Sedgwick, who plays the role of Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson on the show. However, Sedgwick opposed the idea and insistent on her not getting involved with acting. Eventually Duff says he was able to reach Sosie’s parents to agree to her having a brief role on the series provided it did not interfere with her education. Bacon described the agreement as being “more like a treaty negotiation” than an arrangement. Sedgwick’s version of events was different. Bacon said she had told Duff she would discuss it with her husband, but that Duff went to Sosie directly who accepted the role and at that point and her mother said, “there was no turning back.”

On the show, Sosie played Charlie who is left in the care of her aunt (Johnson) and her husband, Special Agent Fritz Howard. The role lasted for four episodes and led to what Sedgwick called one of the hardest scenes for her on the show, where Brenda is telling Charlie that she has to go home with Charlie responding by asking “Do you not want me to stay?” Sedgwick has said she would not find it unusual if Duff offered Bacon a more regular role on Major Crimes, a spin-off of The Closer series.

Following her role on The Closer, Sosie started studying at Brown University and has studied at musical theatre company CAP21. In 2012, she joined the cast of Fiction in Photographs an Off-Broadway musical by Dan Mills and Randy Redd. Sosie Bacon was crowned Miss Golden Globe 2014 on November 21, 2013. Miss Golden Globe is chosen each year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and it assists with the Globes ceremony and is typically the daughter of Hollywood celebrities. The outgoing recipient was Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Frances Fisher and Clint Eastwood. In 2014, she was cast in the leading female role of the independent film Off Season opposite Chance Kelly. Following up her role in 13 Reasons Why, Bacon has been cast as Kristen in Here and Now, a 2018-debuting HBO family drama series from award-winning writer-producer Alan Ball, the youngest daughter of a couple played by Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter.
