Nancy Carroll Overview

Nancy Carroll is a stage and screen actress who trained at LAMDA.

Her career was launched with the Royal Shakespeare Company, performing in Adrian Noble and Gregory Doran’s The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe between 1998 and 1999. This same year she performed as Ophelia in Hamlet at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, and in 2000 stuck with the Shakespeare theme to perform in Gregory Doran and Michael Attenborough’s As You Like It (as Celia) and Henry IV Parts I and II (as Lady Percy), again with the RSC.

2002 saw her perform in Chichester with The Lady’s Not For Burning, and gain an Ian Charleson nomination for her performance as Cordelia in King Lear at the Almeida Theatre under Jonathan Kent. In 2003, she made her debut at the National Theatre in The Talking Cure, returning there in 2004 in The False Servant after playing Helena in Michael Grandage’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre, for which she gained an Ian Charleson commendation.

With several performances at the Liverpool Playhouse Theatre under her belt, plus work with The Peter Hall Company working under the esteemed director himself, in 2005 she took to the Bush Theatre as Lorna Gaffney in Mammals, directed by Anna Mackmin. Bar a brief foray into the West End with See How They Run in 2006, between 2006 and 2007 she stuck with the National, performing in The Voysey Inheritance, The Man of Mode and The Enchantment.

In 2008 she returned to the Almeida with Samuel West’s Waste, before performing as Viola in Twelfth Night, first at the RSC in Stratford and then in its West End transfer to the Duke of York’s, a theatre to which she returned later in 2009 as Lady Croom in Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia. 2010 saw her play Dr Margaret Ford in House of Games, directed by Lindsay Posner, and Joan Scott-Fowler in After the Dance, directed by Thea Sharrock at the National, with which she won Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Actress. Most recently, she has played Silvia Balance in The Recruiting Officer at the Donmar Warehouse, under Josie Rourke.

Screen work includes appearances in The Bill (1998), The Life and Times of William Shakespeare – co-produced by the BBC and RSC – in 2002, Holby City (2003), and Midsomer Murders VII (2004). 2007 saw her play Dahlia Churchman in Doctors, and in 2009 she returned to Midsomer Murders as Connie Bishop. In 2010 she appeared in Words of the Titanic, and in 2011 had roles in Silent Witness, Lewis and Holby City.

Radio work is extensive and film work include playing Cecily in An Ideal Husband (1998), Diana Churchill in The Gathering Storm (a BBC and HBO co-production, 2001), and Iris in Richard Eyre with Fox Films (also 2001).
