Raffey Camomile Cassidy was born on 12 November 2001 in Salford, England. Her father teaches acting and she grew up in a family where her siblings were also involved in the entertainment business. Cassidy took acting classes at David Johnson Drama in Manchester. Her first part came unexpectedly as she was accompanying her older brother Mossie on an audition for a role on a BBC drama. The casting crew needed a girl and, according to Cassidy, she "just happened to be there”.

In 2015, Cassidy completed production as Molly in Amber Entertainment's Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism, with Emily Watson and Dominic Monaghan, and starred as the Audio-Animatronic Athena in Disney's Tomorrowland, with George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson.
