Vicky McClure

Born in Wollaton, Nottingham, Vicky attended her local Fernwood Comprehensive School, and the city’s Central Television Workshop where she was able to build her acting skills. 


A key influence is Midlands film-maker Shane Meadows. He cast Vicky when she was 15 in A Room for Romeo Brass and, most notably, as the tough but deeply-troubled Lol in his This Is England trilogy, first on film, then in two TV follow-ups which earned Vicky a Best Actress BAFTA.  

Other TV roles include Det Con Kate Fleming in Line of Duty and a tabloid reporter in the first series of Broadchurch.

A passionate supporter of local causes, she has launched and taken part in the Alzheimer's Society Nottingham Memory Walk, raising money to fight dementia.
