Rebecca Night (born Rebecca Hardwick; 13 July 1985)[1] is an English actress who starred in the title role of James Hawes's BBC Four adaptation Fanny Hill.[2]

Background[edit]

Rebecca Night was born in Poole, Dorset. She attended Yarrells Preparatory School in Upton, Dorset where she took great pleasure in being a part of the annual musical productions, and later Parkstone Grammar School in Poole as well as Brownsea Open Air Theatre. Night is a former member of the National Youth Theatre, where she appeared as Hero in Much Ado About Nothing and in Master & Margarita at the Lyric Hammersmith.

She is married to fellow actor Harry Hadden-Paton, whom she met while performing The Importance of Being Earnest.

Career[edit]

Night came to prominence playing the title role in Andrew Davies' BBC production of Fanny Hill.

She has since played a wide range of roles including Catherine Linton in ITV's Wuthering Heights, alongside Tom Hardy, Sarah Jones in the Mike Figgis film Suspension of Disbelief and femme fatale Yvonne Moncin in Maigret, with Rowan Atkinson.

Theatre roles include Cecily Cardew in Peter Gill's The Importance of Being Earnest in London's West End and Rose of Sharon in Chichester Festival Theatre's Grapes of Wrath.

Currently, she can be seen in the original production of Terry Johnson's Prism, at the Hampstead Theatre, about the cinematographer Jack Cardiff (best known, perhaps, for The Prince and the Showgirl and The African Queen). To Robert Lindsay's Jack Cardiff, Night plays Lucy/Marilyn Monroe/Lauren Bacall.
