Angel Coulby (born 30 August 1980 in London) is an English actress. She made her television debut in the BBC comedy 'Orrible. She is best known for portraying the character Queen Guinevere "Gwen" Pendragon in the BBC fantasy series Merlin.
She is seen in an episode of Scariest Places on Earth as a student who had an encounter with a ghost. Her breakthrough came in 2001 with her role in the Johnny Vaughan vehicle 'Orrible. She was later chosen to play Gwen, a young woman who would later become Queen Guinevere, in the BBC One fantasy TV series Merlin.
In an interview, Coulby stated that she enjoys being able to play the character from Gwen the humble, lowly maid servant all the way to Queen Guinevere of Camelot. In that capacity, she starred in all the five seasons, and most of the episodes, right up to the final one.
She took the star role of the jazz singer Jessie in the BBC Two Stephen Poliakoff five-part 2013 drama serial Dancing on the Edge along with Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Goodman, Matthew Goode, Anthony Head and Jacqueline Bisset.
It was announced in February that Coulby would star in the British remake of The Tunnel, a Scandinavian crime drama. She will star alongside Stephen Dillane and Clémence Poésy. The series aired in late 2013.
Coulby has stated in interviews that she enjoys music festivals and has recently taken up sewing as a hobby, as well as designing clothes and playing guitar.
