Early life and education

Wokoma made her television debut at 14 as a participant in CBBC's Serious Jungle in 2002. She was also a member of The National Youth Theatre, making her professional acting debut in the BAFTA-winning That Summer Day before going on to train at RADA aged 19.

Since graduating, her television appearances have included Phoebe Waller-Bridge's debut television show Crashing as well as the film adaptation of Half of a Yellow Sun and The Inbetweeners 2. Her theatre work includes productions at the Royal Court, Bush Theatre, Almeida Theatre, The Royal National Theatre, Donmar Warehouse and St. Ann's Warehouse in New York. In 2017 she made her West End theatre debut alongside Martin Freeman and Tamsin Greig in the premiere of the Olivier award-winning comedy Labour of Love by James Graham at the Noël Coward Theatre in London.

In 2017 Wokoma won the RTS Best On-Screen Performance award for Crazyhead.[2] In 2016 she won Best Supporting Actor at the BBC Audio Drama Awards for her performance in the radio adaptation of Marie NDiaye's Three Strong Women.

Wokoma is the voice of ‘Princess Talanji’ World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, the seventh expansion of the popular World of Warcraft game.

Wokoma wrote, starred and associate produced the Sky comedy short Love The Sinner which also starred fellow RADA alumna and friend, Daisy May Cooper.
