Born in 1970, Anne-Marie Duff grew up in London. She attended Drama Centre at 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 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

In 2004, Duff 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.

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, Saint Joan at the National Theatre and Terence Rattigan’s Cause Célèbre at the Old Vic. In 2013, she made her Broadway debut in Macbeth at the Lincoln Center Theater, before running to London in Oil at the Almeida Theatre and Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle alongside Kenneth Cranham.

In 2017, she reprised her role in Macbeth at the National Theatre, starring alongside Rory Kinnear. Then in 2019, she played the title role in Sweet Charity at the Donmar Warehouse, which was the final production under Josie Rourke's tenure.
