Hannah Boyde
Biography

Hannah has worked extensively in theatre. She is a valuable member of any ensemble and a sought-after collaborator for devising new work or adapting the old. She was a co-creator of Mess with Caroline Horton & company, for which they were awarded the prestigious Stage Award For Acting Excellence, for Best Ensemble. She worked closely with Purni Morell, artistic director of the Unicorn Theatre, on the creation of the one-woman show Dora, which garnered lovely reviews, as did her performance as Katharine in Henry V, directed by Ellen McDougall (also at the Unicorn). She has worked on several occasions with Tangram Theatre Company, helping to bring to life their riotous and ground-breaking production of Lope de Vega’s Fuente Ovejuna, and works repeatedly with Company of Angels’ Adam Barnard. Other theatre credits include War Horse in the West End, for the National Theatre, as well as several Shakesperean leads including Kate in The Taming of the Shrew, Viola in Twelfth Night and Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing.

Hannah is equally at home on screen and has done several period pieces for the BBC, as well as playing strong leads in short films and featuring in several high profile commercial campaigns.

She is half-French, half-English, is bilingual in both languages, and equally comfortable working in both languages.
