Early lifeEdit

Creed-Miles was born in England[2][unreliable source?] and attended the English boarding school Bedales. She is the daughter of actors Charlie Creed-Miles and Samantha Morton.[3]


Creed-Miles began her acting career as little Shirley Temple in the film Mister Lonely (2007) directed by Harmony Korine.[3] However, she did not appear in other films after this stint until ten years later when she was cast in Clio Barnard's Dark River.[4] In an interview, Creed-Miles said that she had auditioned for roles in several independent films before she was chosen to star as the titular character in Hanna.[5] According to the actress she trained in martial arts six hours a day for months as preparation for her fight scenes in the series.[6] After the initial episodes, Creed-Miles earned positive reviews. The Atlantic, for instance, noted that she is "imbuing the character with emotional vulnerability and physical power. Even more striking is how she communicates Hanna’s intelligence, how fleet and observant and hyperalert she is."[7]

She plays the lead in the 2019 films Pond Life and Undercliffe produced by Open Palm Films.[8]
