Sal in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)
Henriette in Madame Bovary (2014)
Lady Edith Crawley in Downton Abbey (2010-2015)
Muriel Williams in A United Kingdom (2016)
Daphne in Man in an Orange Shirt (2017)
Maggie Pole in The Spanish Princess (2019)
Lady Edith Pelham, Marchioness of Hexham, in Downton Abbey (2019)
