Bridget Shighadi, Sofia on Maria Drama Series

Bridget Shighadi has been commonly known as Sofia in the Maria drama series which aired on Citizen TV. The drama series was replaced by Zora. Bridget was among the lead characters in the drama. Bridget used to act alongside other major  characters such as Brian Ogana (acting as Luwi) and Yasmin Said (acting as Maria).

She acted as an evil, greedy woman who forced her way and got married to the posh family’s son- Luwi. This was  to inherit everything that belonged to the family when her father-in-law would die.

Sofia even went ahead and colluded with the doctor to forge pregnancy so as to lure the family into a wedding ceremony with hopes to be fully accepted in the family. Her role in the drama made many fans who follow the series to develop negative attitude towards her because she made everything look real, arousing feelings.

On a radio interview, Bridget asked fans not to hate her. After all it is just acting and her real-life personality is different from what Sofia portrays on screens.

She further stated that her boyfriend goes uncomfortable sometimes about her role in the Maria series, just like any man can do but he is after all he is so supportive to his lovely beautiful girlfriend.
