Emerald Lilly Fennell (/fɪˈnɛl/;[1] born 1 October 1985)[2][3] is an English actress, filmmaker and author. She is the recipient of numerous accolades, including one Academy Award, two British Academy Film Awards, one Screen Actors Guild Award, and nominations for three Primetime Emmy Awards and three Golden Globe Awards. Fennell first received attention for her performances in period drama films, such as Albert Nobbs (2011), Anna Karenina (2012), The Danish Girl (2015), and Vita and Virginia (2018). She received wider recognition for her starring roles in the BBC One period drama series Call the Midwife (2013–17) and the Netflix period drama series The Crown (2019–20).

Fennell is also known as showrunner for season two of the BBC thriller series Killing Eve (2019), which earned her two Primetime Emmy Award nominations. In 2020, Fennell made her feature film directorial debut with the thriller Promising Young Woman (2020), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and received nominations for Best Picture, and Best Director, becoming one of the only seven and the first British woman to be nominated for the latter.[4][5]

Early life

Born in Hammersmith in London, Fennell was educated at Marlborough College, an independent school in Marlborough, Wiltshire. She then studied English at Greyfriars, Oxford, where she acted in university plays. There she was spotted by Lindy King of United Agents.[6]

Her sister, Coco Fennell, is a fashion designer.[7][8] Her parents are jewellery designer Theo Fennell and author Louise Fennell (née MacGregor).[9]

Career

Acting

Fennell appeared in the Channel 4 sitcom Chickens with Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Jonny Sweet. She then joined the cast of the BBC One series Call the Midwife as Patsy Mount,[10] after dyeing her blonde hair red.[11] She is also known for her film roles in Albert Nobbs (2011), Anna Karenina (2012), The Danish Girl (2015), and Vita & Virginia (2019).

On 23 October 2018, it was revealed that Fennell would play Camilla Shand in the third season of the Netflix series The Crown. She continued playing the role in the fourth season and gained a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.[12] Fennell made a brief uncredited appearance in her directorial debut film Promising Young Woman as the host of a 'blow job lip' make-up tutorial video.

Writing and directing

In 2008, Fennell was commissioned to write a film script (co-produced by Madeleine Lloyd Webber). Titled Chukka, it's a romantic comedy about a group of teenagers who fight the closure of their school by taking on the rich kids at polo.[6]

Her first novel was published by Bloomsbury Children's Books in January 2013: Shiverton Hall, a children's fantasy.[13][14] In December 2012, it was released as an ebook by Bloomsbury USA.[14]

The Creeper, a sequel, was published mid-2014. ISFDB catalogues them as the Shiverton Hall series.[14] It was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize in 2014. She then released Monsters in September 2015,[15] her first adult horror book.[16]

In July 2018, it was announced that Fennell was hired by her close friend Phoebe Waller-Bridge as head writer for the second season of the BBC series Killing Eve, replacing Waller-Bridge, who remains as a producer. Fennell wrote 6 episodes for the season.[17] Fennell also become one of the show's executive producers. Speaking to The New York Times, Fennell said "Phoebe [Waller-Bridge] and I had worked together in the past, and we’ve been friends for nearly 10 years. We met on a film — Albert Nobbs — which we both had tiny parts in. I started in the very early days as a writer in the Season 2 writer's room. Because it's such an unusual show, they did a very loose writers' room for a week just to see, and then wonderfully and luckily for me they promoted me to head writer."[18] The second season began broadcast in April 2019.[19] At the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, Fennell was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for the season 2 episode "Nice and Neat".[20]

The film went on to earn five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay for Fennell. Fennell became one of only seven women, and the first British woman, to earn a nomination in the directing category. As well, Fennell's directing nomination alongside that of Chloé Zhao marked the first instance of two women earning directing nominations in the same year.[25] For the film, she also received Best Original Screenplay awards at the Critics Choice Awards and the Writers Guild of America Awards. Fennell won the 2021 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay at the 93rd Academy Awards for Promising Young Woman.[4]

In January 2020, Andrew Lloyd Webber announced he would collaborate with Fennell on the musical Cinderella, which is planned to open in London in August 2021.[26]

On 22 March 2021, it was revealed that Fennell was attached to write a Zatanna film for Warner Brothers, set in the DC Extended Universe.[27]

On May 18, 2021, Mark Millar revealed that Fennell had written the latest screenplay of the film adaptation of his comic Nemesis.[28]
