Susan Brown (born 6 May 1946)[1][2] is an English actress of the stage and screen.


Brown was born in Bristol, England. Before starting her professional career, Brown trained at Rose Bruford College.[3]

She has appeared in numerous theatre productions including: The Wild Duck (Donmar Warehouse), Henry IV Parts 1 & 2, Playing with Fire, Cardiff East[4] and The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other[5] (National Theatre),[6] Easter, Romeo and Juliet, Richard III and Bad Weather (RSC),[3] Road,[7][8] Shirley, Downfall, Gibraltar Straight[9] and Seagulls (Royal Court), Butterfly Kiss (Almeida), The House of Bernarda Alba and The Chairs (Gate Theatre), You Be Ted and I'll Be Sylvia (Hampstead), Playing Sinatra (Croydon Warehouse and Greenwich Theatre), The Beaux' Stratagem, Back to Methuselah, The Vortex, The Way of the World and A Woman of No Importance (Cambridge Theatre Company), Twelfth Night (English Touring Theatre), Small Change[10][11] and Iphigenia (Sheffield Crucible).

Brown also played a part of "Mrs Dimmock" a widow who comes across an oriental cannon, in an episode of Lovejoy "The Peking Gun" in October 1993

To international audiences, Brown is perhaps best known for her role as Septa Mordane in the first series of Game of Thrones. Her character was killed off in the concluding episodes of the series and as a result, she has not appeared since. She had a supporting role as Margaret Thatcher's live-in carer June in The Iron Lady and has also had small roles in BBC drama series Call the Midwife and Torchwood.
