Sofia Boutella (born April 3, 1982 in Bab El Oued, Algeria) is an Algerian-French dancer and actress.

She's the daughter of Algerian composer Safy Boutella. The family moved to France when she was 12. She practiced rhythmic gymnastics then turned to Hip-Hop and street dance. Sportswear brand Nike noticed her and prominently featured her in their Women's advertising campaigns. She also ended up one of the dancers of Madonna's Sticky & Sweet Tour in 2008-2009.

She has been acting on film and television since age 17, mostly in small roles, until her big break in that field with the role of Gazelle in Kingsman: The Secret Service, and she's taken on roles of increasing prominence since.

Her brother Azad Boutella and her cousin Shirine Boutella are also actors.
