In 2003, she played the children's book heroine Eloise, in two made-for-television movies Eloise at the Plaza and Eloise at Christmastime directed by Kevin Lima, with Julie Andrews as Nanny. At age 11, in May 2004, Sofia began playing the role of Ariel DuBois in Medium.

She was a presenter of Family Feature Film on the Humane Society's 19th Genesis Awards in 2005. Vassilieva was nominated in 2005 for a SyFy Portal Genre Award as best young actor/actress for her role in Medium. She won a Young Artist Award in 2006 for best supporting actress in a TV Drama for her role in Medium.
