Sophia remains glad that her parents have kept her from the spotlight while growing up. Her father, Eric, has well guarded about releasing the information about his family to the public.

Nevertheless, Sophia and her loving family have attended numerous events. Whether attending the AFL match in 2013 or the screening of The Dry in December 2020, Eric has remained supportive of his family.

Parents Details

She is the daughter of Eric Bana and Rebecca Gleeson. Her father, Eric, is a renowned Australian actor, while her mother, Rebecca, is an Australian publicist.

Eric, who has been in the acting industry since 1993, is famous for his role in films like Black Hawk Down and Hulk. According to CelebrityNetWorth, he has a net worth of $45 million.

Likewise, Rebecca is a TV personality and publicist. She has worked with local Australian TV channels and has featured in the Eric Bana show. As a publicist, she worked in the two series in the 1990s, Newlyweds, and Blueheelers.

Sophia’s parents, Eric and Rebecca, met while working on Full Frontal in January 1995 and married in 1997. They have been relishing their long-term relationship residing in Australia with their two kids.

Modeling Career

Sophia Bana has started her modeling career by signing with the Melbourne agency, The Talent Buro. The celebrity kid spoke to The Herald Sun in June 2022, revealing that she broadened her interest with support from her family and friends.

At first, she didn’t consider modeling, but with her family and friends’ mentoring, she decided to pursue a modeling career.

She added that while studying dancing, she has not ruled out the possibility of being an actor. However, the 20-years-old dancer admits that she wants to try following her father’s footsteps in acting after she can devote more ‘focus, time, and energy.’

But on the other side, she doesn’t want to lean on her actor father. Instead, Sophia wants to discover her interests and makes sure she figures herself out independently.
