Emily Barber

Emily is currently appearing as Monty in the Olivier award winning musical OPERATION MINCEMEAT in the West End. 

She will shortly be seen in Series 3 of HBO's INDUSTRY, where she joins the cast alongside Kit Harrington, and has recently been seen in the time-travelling Netflix series BODIES. 

Having previously starred in the Sky comedy DREAMLAND, Emily also played the role of Tessa in the international hit BRIDGERTON, and starred as Violet Hayward in THE ALIENIST: THE ANGEL OF DARKNESS for Netflix. Her additional screen credits include recurring roles in CALL THE MIDWIFE (BBC) and THE ROYALS (Lionsgate / E!).

On stage, Emily won Best Newcomer at the Manchester Theatre Awards for her debut professional performance in BILLY LIAR for Sam Yates, and was later nominated for the Ian Charleston award for her performance of Imogen in CYMBELINE at Shakespeare’s Globe with her appearance prompting The Independent to name her as “One To Watch”.

She has just finished her run as Annabel in the farcical BACKSTAIRS BILLY at the Duke of York's Theatre in the West End, directed by Michael Grandage, opposite Luke Evans and Penelope Wilton.
