Anne-Marie Duff On Stage - Theatre Credits, Bio and Tickets

Anne-Marie Duff

Anne-Marie Duff (born 8th October 1970) grew up in Southall, London. She attended Drama Centre at the age of 19 after being involved with an amateur theatrical company during her earlier teenage years.

Duff’s early professional stage work included productions of Peter Pan, War and Peace and King Lear. She was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actress following her appearance alongside Helen Mirren in Donald Margulies’ play Collected Stories, which ran the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Despite this early success, Duff was still yet to enter the public consciousness. She had worked on screen on television already, but in 2004 she was cast in the Channel 4 series Shameless as Fiona McBride, the eldest of the Gallagher siblings forced to act as their mother after Monica Gallagher left the family due to their father’s irresponsibility. Shameless was a hit for its comical take on working class life in northern Britain, and won a BAFTA TV Award in 2005 for Best Drama Series. Duff appeared in the series for 19 episodes as a regular for the first two series, and as a guest in series 11 (2013).

On stage, Duff went on to appear in a number of productions in London such as Days of Wine and Roses at the Donmar Warehouse (2005), Saint Joan in the Olivier at the National Theatre (2007) and Terence Rattigan’s Cause Célèbre at the Old Vic (2011).

In more recent years, she made her Broadway debut in Macbeth at the Lincoln Center Theater (2013), Oil at the Almeida Theatre (2016) and Simon Stephens’ Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle alongside Kenneth Cranham (2016).

Duff will star as Lady Macbeth once again in 2017, this time opposite Rory Kinnear in Rufus Norris’ production of Macbeth in the Olivier at the National Theatre in London.
