Early life[edit]

Du Jeu has a Swedish mother and an English grandmother. She studied at the Conservatoire d'Art Dramatique de Saint-Germain-en-Laye from 1992–96, and took the Jean Périmony course the following two years, for which she received the Louis Jouvet prize in 1997. She went on to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and received a special commendation for the Ian Charleson Award for her role as Katherine in Henry V in 2003 with the National Theatre.

She starred in the BBC show Waking the Dead, appearing from the fifth series until the opening episode of the eighth series. Her character was killed off when she suffered a thrombosis after being shot in the leg,[citation needed] thus becoming the second female officer in the show to be killed off following Claire Goose's exit at the end of series four.
