She had a major role in the Danny Boyle directed BBC TV series ‘Trust’ which followed the trials and dramas of one of the world’s wealthiest families, the Gettys, following the Mafia kidnapping of John Paul Getty III in 1973.  She played Robina Lund, Getty’s lawyer, who he had a long standing affair with, in a cast which included Donald Sutherland and Hilary Swank.

She also played Caris, the heroic female lead in ‘World Without End’, Channel 4’s 14th century drama series set during the Black Death and the Hundred Years War, based on the novel by Ken Follett.  And in 2009 she played Maggie in Sky’s high octane crime thriller series ‘The Take’, about a criminal sociopath recently released from prison, starring opposite Tom Hardy and Shaun Evans.
