Early lifeEdit

Brady was born in Bracknell, Berkshire and moved around the country as a child. She went to boarding school at St Mary's School Ascot from the ages of 11 to 18. Interested in acting from a young age, she did some modeling as a teenager to save money to move to London.[10]


Brady made her television debut in the second series of the ITV series Mr Selfridge and her film debut as Joan Collins in Legend.[11] She then signed with Premier Model Management, walking her first runway and landing a brand campaign with Miu Miu.[10][12] She played Mary Bennet in the 2016 comedy horror film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. In 2015, she was set to star in a TV adaptation of the novel The Clan of the Cave Bear; however, Lifetime cancelled the series before it ever went into production.[13][14]

In 2017, Brady joined the main cast of The Last Kingdom for its second series as Lady Æthelflæd. She had film roles in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), Teen Spirit (2018), and Intrigo: Samaria (2019). In 2020, she starred in two miniseries: White House Farm on ITV as Sally Jones and Roadkill on BBC One as Lily Laurence.[15] She also had a minor role in The Queen's Gambit on Netflix.

In June 2021, it was announced Brady would appear in the Apple TV+ miniseries Surface, which premiered 29 July 2022. Brady made her Off West End debut in February 2022 appearing in an English-language translation of the play The Forest by Florian Zeller at the Hampstead Theatre, directed by Jonathan Kent.[16]

In April 2022, Brady was cast in the horror-thriller film Double Blind alongside Pollyanna McIntosh.[17] In August 2022 it was announced that Brady would star as the lead in the Filip Jan Rymza-directed feature film Object Permanence, playing "Brooke Brooks, a former supermodel who becomes a highly successful lifestyle mogul and the first person to IPO (Initial Public Offering) herself." Filming is set to begin September 2022 in Poland, Germany and Thailand.[18]
