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. 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”.
Cassidy's credits include Universal Pictures' Snow White and the Huntsman, opposite Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, and Chris Hemsworth, and Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, with Johnny Depp for Warner Bros. 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 android Athena in Disney's Tomorrowland, with George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson.
