|Years active||2004 – present|
Griffith's on-screen acting debut was in a minor role in the 2004 made-for-television movie She's Gone. Also in 2004, she appeared in more prominent roles in the television movie Dirty Filthy Love, the comedy film Alfie and the short film Turn, as well as featuring in The Headsman and guest-starring on the British comedy The Worst Week of My Life in 2005.
Griffith won her role as Katie Connor on the 2007 television series Damages after taking a last-minute audition a month after she moved to New York City. The role saw her with an imitated American accent; she says "[the producers] were a little concerned at first about a Brit playing an American, especially because they already had an Australian (Rose Byrne) playing an American," and so she addressed them in an American accent from beginning to end of the audition. Griffith returned to the series as a main cast member for the second season, which aired in 2009.
She guest-starred in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and also in the television series New Amsterdam's second episode, "Golden Boy". She was later cast in the NBC medical drama Trauma, which began airing in September 2009. In May 2010, after 18 episodes, the show was officially cancelled by NBC. She returned on 17 June 2010, at the end from episode 3 season 2 from Royal Pains, as Dr. Emily Peck.
Griffith appeared in the 2011 Lifetime television movie And Baby Will Fall as Ivy Rose.
She can be seen as Elizabeth Haverford Morehouse, the English wife of a wealthy Fifth-Avenue businessman, on the BBC America series Copper. Set in the Five Points neighborhood of New York City in the 1860s, the series focuses on a rugged young Irish cop who is forced to navigate his unruly and dangerous immigrant neighborhood while interacting with the uptown Manhattan crowd and the black community.
