What happened to Sophie at the end? (SPOILERS)


With all going up in smoke and most of the people being killed, I didn't notice what happened to Sophie. Was she killed or had she already been sent to boarding school by then?

She was not present and it may be assumed that Hammond had already sent her away, and so she luckily survived. That might be necessary for the plot since if she died Hammond would not have let Drum escape.

I wonder how old Sophie was supposed to be in the film. Rainbeau Smith was 21 at the time but I suppose Sophie was meant to be an underage girl in the film - thought unbelievably oversexed and horny.

For what it's worth Sophie plays an important role in one of the sequel novels, so she did survive.
