Sonia Darrin (née Paskowitz; c. 1924) is a retired American film actress, best known as "Agnes Lowzier" in The Big Sleep.[1] Born to Louis and Rose Paskowitz, Jewish emigrants from Russia, who landed at Galveston, Texas, she had two brothers, Adrian and Dorian. The family relocated to San Diego in 1934.

Sonia Paskowitz married William "Bill" Reese,[when?] a theater set designer and marketing services company president. The couple had four children, three sons and a daughter, and lived in Manhattan. Their youngest son was former child actor Mason Reese. Her last two public appearances were on The Mike Douglas Show in the 1970s, and in a documentary film about her brother Dorian (in 2007).[2]
