SEASON OF THE WITCH

CLAIRE FOY (The Girl) has recently finished filming "Upstairs Downstairs” for the BBC.

In this hugely anticipated revival due for release this December Foy plays Lady Persephone and stars alongside a stellar cast including Aileen Atkins, Jean Marsh and Keeley Hawes. She spent the earlier part of this year in Israel where she was filming the highly anticipated four-part serial "Homeland,” by the multi-award-winning writer-director Peter Kosminsky. Foy takes the lead role "Erin” in this topical British Channel 4 drama about the conflict in the Middle East, due for release early next year.

Foy has recently been seen on British television screens in the Sky 1 series "Going Postal,” in which she played Adora Belle Dearheart. In this adaptation of Terry Pratchett's novel, Foy starred alongside David Suchet and Tamsin Greig.

Since graduating from the Oxford School of Drama in the summer of 2007, Foy made a name for herself in the title role of the critically acclaimed BBC adaptation "Little Dorrit,” which won best mini-series at the 2009 Emmy Awards and has been nominated for best mini-series at this year's Golden Globes. Foy's performance also earned her a nomination in the best actress category at the 2009 RTS Television Awards. Foy starred opposite Matthew Macfadyen and Tom Courtenay in this compelling period drama based on Charles Dickens' classic novel.

Foy's other television credits include "Being Human” (BBC), in which she played the role of Julia, directed by Declan O'Dwyer. Foy also played the role of Chloe Webster in the popular BBC1 daytime series "Doctors.”

She made her professional stage debut at the National Theatre in "DNA/The Miracle/Baby Girl,” a trio of acts directed by Paul Miller.
