Nancy Carroll (born 1974) is a British actress. She trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, from which she graduated in June 1998.

Family[edit]

She is married to actor Jo Stone-Fewings. The couple have two children. They met as part of an RSC company that went on tour for a week and a half providing material for Michael Wood's documentary series In Search of Shakespeare (broadcast 2003), and got engaged just nine days after first meeting.

Stage career[edit]

Her first professional role was as Ophelia in Hamlet at the Bristol Old Vic. She has recently appeared onstage in productions of George Etherege's The Man of Mode (2007), Harley Granville-Barker's The Voysey Inheritance (2006), as Emma Jung in The Talking Cure, and Pierre de Marivaux's The False Servant (1 June - 15 September 2004) at the Royal National Theatre. She has also appeared at the Almeida Theatre in Jonathan Kent's King Lear (also at The Old Vic) and in another Granville-Barker play, Waste (2008).

Her "Lady Croom" in the 2009 London revival of Stoppard's Arcadia received favourable reviews,[1] as did her successful run as the psychologist Dr Ford in David Mamet's House of Games at the Almeida Theatre.[2]

She has appeared onstage with her husband several times, in See How They Run (2006), and in the Noël Coward double bill at the Liverpool Playhouse in March 2004 (The Astonished Heart and Still Life). In 2009, she appeared as Viola opposite her husband's Orsino in an RSC production of Twelfth Night directed by Gregory Doran.

Carroll appeared alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Adrian Scarborough in Thea Sharrock's revival of Terence Rattigan's play, After the Dance, at the Royal National Theatre in London in 2010. Her "heartbreaking portrayal" won her the best actress award in the Evening Standard drama awards and Olivier awards for 2010.[3][4]

Carroll appeared alongside John Lithgow, Joshua McGuire and Nicholas Burns in Arthur Wing Pinero's Victorian farce The Magistrate at the National Theatre in 2012. In 2013 she played the lead role of Felicity Houston in the new play The Duck House by Dan Patterson and Colin Swash,[5] starring alongside Ben Miller and Diana Vickers.[6] The show was a political satire based on the UK parliamentary expenses scandal and toured for 5 weeks before transferring to London's Vaudeville Theatre.[5]
