Early life and education
Griffith made her onscreen acting debut in a minor role, in the made-for-television movie She's Gone (2004). Also in 2004, she appeared in more prominent roles in the television movie Dirty Filthy Love, the comedy film Alfie, the short film Turn, and The Headsman. In 2005, she guest-starred in the British comedy The Worst Week of My Life.
Griffith won her role as Katie Connor, on the 2007 television series Damages, after taking a last-minute audition one month after moving 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 Griffith addressed them in an American accent from the beginning to the 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 in the second episode of New Amsterdam, titled "Golden Boy". She was later cast in the NBC medical drama Trauma, which began airing in September 2009. In May 2010, after 18 episodes, NBC officially cancelled the show. Griffithn returned on 17 June 2010, at the end from episode 3 season 2 from Royal Pains, as Dr. Emily Peck.
Griffith appeared in the Lifetime television movie And Baby Will Fall (2011), as Ivy Rose.
In 2011, she appeared in ABC's TV series, Once Upon a Time, as Kathryn Nolan and her counterpart Abigail. She debuted in Season1, episode 3.
