Sophie Lara Winkleman (b.1980) is an English actress. She is best known for playing Big Suze on Peep Show and Zoey on Two and a Half Men. Other roles include the adult Susan Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Katerina Bartikovsky in Red Dwarf: Back to Earth, numerous roles in sketch comedy Harry and Paul and Dorothy Gibson in the 2012 Titanic miniseries.

She is the younger half-sister, by eight years, of the popular BBC television presenter (Strictly Come Dancing, The Great British Sewing Bee, The Traitors, etc.) Claudia Winkleman.

In 2009, Sophie married Lord Frederick Windsor, the son of Prince Michael of Kent and a first cousin once removed of Queen Elizabeth II. This makes her one of two actresses to marry into The British Royal Family, the other being the considerably more famous Meghan Markle. She is entitled to be called Lady Frederick Windsor but continues to use her own name when acting, which is why none of her Two and a Half Men co-stars knew they were working alongside royalty. Her daughters Maud and Isabella, as great-granddaughters of King George V, are currently 53rd and 54th in the line of succession to the British throne, directly behind their father and grandfather.
