Miffy Englefield played Sophie, Jude Law’s daughter, in the iconic Christmas favourite The Holiday before she went on to star in The Whistleblowers and Casualty

It’s been 15 years since The Holiday was released – and Miffy Englefield, who played Jude Law’s daughter, is all grown up and is even a mum herself.

Miffy was just six when she bagged the role of Sophie in The Holiday, starring alongside Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jack Black and Emma Pritchard, who played her on-screen sister.

But despite giving up acting when she was a teen, Miffy is still being recognised for her role, especially by “gross old men” who still call her “cute,” she said.

The 2006 romantic comedy follows Amanda and Iris, played by Cameron and Kate, as they swap homes in each other’s countries for the Christmas holidays to escape their guy troubles.

However, their lives changed unexpectedly when they both ended up meeting and falling in love.

Amanda strikes up a romance with Jude’s character Graham, who happens to be Iris’ brother.

All seems to be going well until Amanda overhears Graham on the phone to who she believes is another woman, only to find out that he was actually chatting with his two daughters Sophie and Emma.

Now 22, Miffy lives in Littlehampton, West Sussex, with her partner, drummer Alex Whivley-Conway, 25 and their eight-month-old baby girl Frankie.

In a TikTok video this week on her @miffz_ account, she opened up about her role in the film, and how fans see her now.

She wrote: “When gross old men say things like ‘I’m so glad you are still as cute as you were in The Holiday’ to me.”

Adding: “Relating how I looked as a child to how I look as a grown a** woman makes me all kinds of creeped out idk.”

Since being posted, the video has racked up thousands of likes and dozens of comments from fans who recognised her instantly.

“I literally knew who you were straight away, Mr Napkin Head is still hilarious,” said one person.

Another wrote: “Well my gran loves that film and always points out how good you are in it so I hope that makes you feel a bit better.”

“Yeah that would give me the ick!” said a third.

While someone else suggested she: “Report them alllllll,” alongside a red flag emoji.
