Before entering the film industry, Sofia Kappel worked in several famous companies and was also in good positions after the completion of her studies. Also adding to this, she catered as an HR manager in a financial company for years. But later in life, she had a sudden epiphany that she was not content with her career, then she chose to try out something else and made an entry into the modeling profession.

Later after this movie, she also acted in ‘Regulars’ and ‘Feed’ in the year 2022.

The film ‘Pleasure’ and Kappel’s experience in the film

When we discuss the porn industry, depictions of the nitty-gritty of such industries are quite rare to be witnessed on the big screen, which is a huge reason why the film ‘Pleasure’ has received so much acknowledgment when it was released.

In the year 2020, the film had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie was also critically appreciated and considered as one of the ghastly shocking NSFW movies of the year.

The film’s two-hour run period would finish in a flash, and the story engages its audience with the horrendous side of the Los Angeles porn industry, including certain twists and turns and a few gruesome, painfully real situations which will leave the audience squirming with discomfort.

The actress makes her debut in her career with the film ‘Pleasure’ and says she instigated her acting career with the most difficult part she could ever do. The director Ninja Thyberg has been working on this film since Sofia was 13, and now she’s 24, so when she got the part, she was very glad that her acting career was starting with such great exposure. Sofia talks a lot about her acting experience in the film and mentions that she never thought she would be able to execute the role but letting go of her fears helped her in giving her best to the film and making it a success.

The movie completely captures the perspective of Bella, who is a very small-town newcomer to the Los Angeles porn industry, and desperately seeks to progress to the top and become the best porn actress she could possibly become.

The film is breathtaking since it approaches to talk about such vital themes as body exploitation, fetishisation, chauvinistic patriarchy, misogynism and also other dark corners of this industry in a surprisingly captivating way. The lead role itself changed Sofia’s life. It aided her in leaving her fears behind and also helped her in overcoming mental health issues which she had before.

Sofia also overcame her body dysmorphic disorder and gained a lot of confidence as a person, she said. This film was not just any film to her but a life-changing part indeed.

While shooting the film ‘Pleasure’, Kappel puts weightage on the topic that she was never made to feel uncomfortable or hurt. Even a close friend of Kappel from Sweden came to make sure that she felt safe during the filming of ‘Pleasure’. During the shooting, if Sofia made eye contact, which indicated a cut, the director took all measures to make sure that she wasn’t put in any situation that the character Bella faced, especially when someone says a ‘no’ but really can’t say ‘no’.

As Kappel worked with real-life pornstars for the film ‘Pleasure’, it helped her a lot to learn more about her role and be more authentic on screen. Sofia added that bonding with the porn actors helped her in being comfortable with the intimate scenes. Sofia referred to these porn actors as “amazing actors” and mentioned that she felt glad to have worked with them because they were mind-blowing in their parts and completely broke the clichéd stereotype that pornstars can’t act. 

‘Pleasure’ is indeed a very confronting movie, yet Kappel states that she doesn’t mind the audience contemplating that it’s uncomfortable or to be scared about her after the film since she takes that as a compliment to her performance on screen, for she believes when reel becomes real, that’s when an actor is successful.

Sofia Kappel as Bella Cherry

Thyberg’s lead role Bella is a young adult in the porn industry who seeks fame, although knowing there’s no happiness beneath the shimmers of the limousine. Bella is wounded throughout her journey, and her decisions make her regret every moment. When in a scene, she stops the car and moves out of it, which signifies the fact that one has to sacrifice moral conduct in order to get stardom.

Thyberg essentially tries to keep Sofia and Bella’s origins the same to make the film seem more realistic and relatable than how a small-town girl is thrown into the glam world and goes astray in the greed of fame. Sofia caters to Bella’s viewpoint in the movie, which is the same as any conventional girl who would be comfortable with the boy-girl and girl-girl category and limiting her boundaries until that, whereas other characters like Joy are comfortable with any adult category of porn. 

In the film ‘Pleasure’, Thyberg juxtaposes Kappel’s(Bella) bondage experience against a rough sex scene which is later filmed with a male director. In this very scene, the line between reel and real blurs.

Sofia Kappel an actress with no prior experience in either porn industry or film, caters for a star-making on-screen performance as Bella. Kappel maintains equilibrium in showcasing not just the hesitancy and fright of failure felt by an actor but the happiness as well. Since Bella prefers the original theatrics of porn, she very much acknowledges the sense of freedom sex can bring. Sofia Kappel, being a terrific intelligent woman, completely knows the demands of the camera. A notable zeal reflects through her eyes as she enacts, for she knows what the lens desires.
