Early life

Sosie Bacon was born in 1992 to actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Bacon was provided with a "fairly ordinary" upbringing, according to producer James Duff, and her parents were determined that she not follow them into acting.[1][failed verification][2]


While directing Loverboy, Kevin Bacon decided to cast Sosie in the film. Asked about the choice, he said that he made the decision as a director, not as a father, because he believed his daughter was perfect for the role, and "Sosie was cool. She kind of got it out of her system. She said 'Oh, that was fun—now I'm going back to school'." Sosie portrayed the main character Emily in a flashback, while the adult Emily was portrayed by Sosie's mother Kyra Sedgwick.[3][4] As Emily, Sosie sang an a cappella version of the David Bowie song "Life on Mars?", that was described in a review from The New York Times as "grotesquely funny".[5][6] Her brother, Travis Bacon, was cast in a smaller role in the film.[7] Kevin praised Sosie's work on Loverboy, but said that he would not be encouraging her to pursue acting further.[8]

Her performance in Loverboy is what James Duff, the producer of The Closer, has said first prompted him to suggest that Bacon begin acting.[1] Duff had wanted to write her into the series since she was 12 years old, according to Sedgwick, who plays the role of Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson on the show.[9] However, Sedgwick was opposed to the idea, insistent on Sosie's not getting involved with acting. Duff said that he eventually was able to get her parents to agree to her having a brief role in the series provided it did not interfere with her education. He described the agreement as being "more like a treaty negotiation" than an arrangement.[1] Sedgwick's version of events was different. She said that she had told Duff she would discuss it with her husband, but that Duff went directly to Sosie, who accepted the role, and at that point, her mother said, "there was no turning back".[9] The role lasted for four episodes.

Following her role on The Closer, Bacon began studying at Brown University[10] and has studied at musical theatre company CAP21. She joined the cast of Fiction in Photographs in 2012, an off-Broadway musical by Dan Mills and Randy Redd.[11][12]

On November 21, 2013, Bacon was crowned Miss Golden Globe 2014. Chosen each year by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Miss Golden Globe assists with the Globes ceremony and is typically the daughter of Hollywood celebrities.[13]

Sosie was cast in the leading female role of the independent film Off Season (2014), opposite Chance Kelly.[14] Following up her role in 13 Reasons Why, Bacon was cast in Here and Now, a 2018-debuting HBO family drama series from award-winning writer-producer Alan Ball, as Kristen, the youngest daughter of a couple played by Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter.[15]In HBO’s 2021 limited series Mare of Easttown, she was cast as Carrie Layden. She starred in the 2022 horror film Smile as the protagonist, Dr. Rose Cotter.[16]
