Where is Stevie from The Saddle Club now?

The Saddle Club was a popular TV show in the 2000s that followed the adventures of three young girls who shared a passion for horse riding.

And 17 years after its premiere, one of the program’s main stars has returned to the spotlight as a YouTube personality. 

Canadian actress Sophie Bennett, now 29, rose to fame in Australia as Pine Hollow’s resident prankster Stevie Lake.

Sophie starred alongside Keenan MacWilliam (Carole Hanson) and Lara Jean Marshall (Lisa Atwood) in the first two seasons of The Saddle Club between 2001 and 2003.

The program was later re-cast when a third season was recommissioned in 2009.

While Sophie’s acting credits have been sparse since appearing on the kids’ TV show, she now boasts a following on YouTube.

The former child star, who launched her channel one year ago, also works full-time as an advertising project manager in Toronto.

From makeup and hair tutorials to style tips and lifestyle content, Sophie describes her channel as ‘focusing predominantly on beauty and fashion’.

Last month, she discussed on her YouTube channel what it was like growing up on television in Australia.

She talked about having her first kiss on screen at age 11 and how she was bullied by her classmates in Melbourne because of her TV fame.

While she claimed the show was a great experience, she clarified the content would not be centered around her past.

‘I ended the show over 10 years ago and I don’t want to live in a show that I did as a kid when I’m almost 30-years old.’

‘I don’t want to stay in kids’ content forever. As you guys can imagine you grow up and have your own interests, and for me – it was a job.’

Meanwhile, her two on-screen besties have gone on to varying careers since their shared time on the show.

Lara (who played Lisa) now resides in Los Angeles and returned to acting in 2013 for roles on The Doctor Blake Mysteries and The Lost Nirvana.

Keenan (who played Carole) now works as a creative at VICE Media.
