Fantastic Femmes--Sonia Rolland

Born in Rwanda, of a Tutsi mother and French father, the young Sonia and her parents narrowly-escaped to Burundi, shortly before civil war broke out, then emigrated to France.
In high school, Sonia took classes in media, hoping to work behind the scenes in film or tv.
However, when she entered a local beauty contest, which led to her becoming Miss France, opportunities opened up to her in front of the cameras, rather than behind them.
The biggest of them was starring in the title role on a tv show based on a graphic novel series...Lea Parker. There are clips on YouTube, but the show has yet to air in the U.S.
(We had some background on the series here.)
Since then, she's parlayed her fame on behalf of charities, including one she herself founded, to aid Rwandan refugees.
Genre appearances include...
