Lakhmari and her part in his film Zero, one year later, marked a turning point in her career as an actress.
In 2013, She won her first film award (Best Supporting Actress) for her performance in Zero at the National Film Festival In Tangier. Since, Sonia has made several appearances in US TV series (The red Tent, AD. The Bible, Killing Jesus…). In 2015, she has her first leading role in La Moitié du Ciel for which she won the Best actress award at the Muscat International Film Festival in Oman (2016).
