Sofia Coppola | Acting and Writing

In 1986, Sofia Coppola was cast as Kathleen Turner’s sister in her father’s Peggy Sue Got Married, and in 1989 she wrote a short, Life without Zoe, that was her father’s contribution to the 1989 anthology picture, New York Stories. And then, when Winona Ryder dropped out at the last minute, her father cast her in his long-awaited The Godfather: Part III as Michael and Kay Corleone’s daughter Mary. She spoke of the experience to The Guardian’s Ella Taylor  in 2003. “I’ll try anything once,” she said. “I’m more interested in set-design, more visually driven. I was just trying to help out.” After The Godfather: Part III,  Coppola stepped behind the camera, becoming a creator in the world of film, video and fashion.
