Bio

Laura Carmichael is an English actress best known for her starring role as Lady Edith Crawley in the period drama television series Downton Abbey, since 2010.

Carmichael was working as a receptionist in a doctor's office and about to go on tour to Dubai with a production of Twelfth Night when she got a call to read for the part of Lady Edith, her first television role.

After two seasons of Downton Abbey under her belt she appeared with Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011) and is enjoying the career for which she trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

Despite on-screen animosity, Laura enjoys a sister-like relationship with Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Lady Sybil) during filming and off-set.
