Early lifeEdit

Temple was born in Hammersmith, London,[2] the daughter of producer Amanda Pirie and film director Julien Temple.[3][4] She grew up in Taunton, Somerset, and attended Enmore Primary School, Bedales School, and King's College, Taunton. She has two younger brothers: Leo and Felix.

Film careerEdit

Temple began her career as a child actress in the 1997 film Vigo: Passion for Life, a film about Jean Vigo.[5] Her father directed her in the role of Emma Southey in the 2000 film, Pandaemonium.

Early in her career, she won critical praise for several supporting roles. One reviewer said that she played her part in Notes on a Scandal (2006) with "petulance and angst",[6] while her performance as Lola Quincey in Atonement (2007) was called "impressive".[7] She auditioned to play Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007),[8] though the role ultimately went to Evanna Lynch. In 2009, Temple played Eema in the comedy Year One alongside Jack Black and Michael Cera, Anna in Jaco Van Dormael's Mr. Nobody, and Di Radfield in the film adaptation of Sheila Kohler's novel, Cracks. Some of her other film credits at the time include Celia in St Trinian's (2007) and St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold (2009), Jennifer "Drippy" Logan in Wild Child (2008), and Jane Parker in The Other Boleyn Girl (2008).[9]

In 2010, she starred in Abe Sylvia's Dirty Girl, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival; and appeared in a sketch for FunnyOrDie called "Cycop", which featured the protagonist from the indie film The Mother of Invention (2009) in a poorly made film of his creation.[10] She also had a major role in the film Kaboom (2010), which won the first Queer Palm award. In 2011, Temple appeared in Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D film adaptation of The Three Musketeers, as Anne of Austria, the Queen Consort of France; played Dottie in Killer Joe; and starred in Elgin James's film Little Birds. James offered her the choice of playing either of the two female leads and she chose to portray Lily, citing that she connected with the character more and "wanted to set her free".[11] Temple and James worked on Little Birds together for two years, and continued to collaborate afterwards,[12] referring to each other as "best friends"[13] and "family" in interviews.[14] James has said he made Little Birds to honor the strong women in his life, including Temple.[12] That same year, she was named a Brit to Watch by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.[15]

In 2012, she appeared in The Dark Knight Rises, as a "street-smart Gotham girl",[16] and portrayed Diane in the lesbian werewolf tale Jack & Diane.[17] In February 2013, Temple won the EE Rising Star BAFTA Award, voted for by the public.[18][19]

Temple had a supporting role as Deborah Hussey in the 2015 true-crime film Black Mass, which starred Johnny Depp; and played Jamie Vine, an A&R assistant for the fictional American Century record company, in the 2016 HBO series Vinyl. In August 2020, Temple began a recurring role as Keeley, a former girlfriend of one of the team players and the unofficial team publicist, on the Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.[20][21]

Temple has also appeared in the music videos for Kid Harpoon's "Milkmaid" and Plushgun's "Just Impolite".[22]

In 2020 she won the Best Actress award at the Prague Independent Film Festival for her role in the film Lost Transmissions.

Personal lifeEdit

From mid-2014 to 2016, Temple lived in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, with her then-boyfriend, actor Michael Angarano, whom she met in 2012 during production of their film The Brass Teapot.[23][24]

Her aunt Nina Temple was the last General Secretary of the Communist Party of Great Britain.[25]
