She portrayed Mary Boleyn (King Henry VIII's sister-in-law) in the Showtime drama The Tudors (2007). In 2008 she appeared as Lydia Bennet in the ITV series Lost In Austen. She played a murdering teen in the Death and Dreams episode of Midsomer Murders in 2003.

She has worked on productions such as Stig of the Dump (2002), Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking (2004), and Miss Potter (2006) (but was cut from the latter) and played the role of Kitten (daughter of a rock star) in an episode of Lewis—"Counter Culture Blues" (2009).
