To begin with, the girl was raised by her parents Ian and Anne McCrory, the oldest of three children, and grew up in numerous countries, including Norway, Nigeria, France and Madagascar as her father was in the diplomatic service. McCrory ultimately studied at the Drama Centre, which is a part of the University of the Arts in London.

Concerning her professional career, McCrory was nominated for the London Evening Standard Theatre Award as the Best Actress for her role of Elena in “Uncle Vanya” (2002), and was later nominated for a Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in the West End Theatre in 2006, for her role of Rosalinde in the play “As You Like It”. In 2008, she played a fascinating Rebecca West in a production of Ibsen’s “Rosmersholm” at the Almeida Theatre in London.

Her television work includes the role of Margaret Peel in the film “Lucky Jim” (2003), Lady Castlemaine in “Charles II: The Power and The Passion” (2003), and leading roles in the ITV miniseries “Anna Karenina” (2000) and “Carla” (2003). McCrory also appeared in supporting roles in films including “Interview with a Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles” (1994), “Dad Savage” (1998), “The Count of Monte Cristo” (2002) and “Casanova” (2005). In “The Queen” (2006) she played Cherie Blaire, a role she once again took on in the sequel “The Special Relationship” (2010) by Peter Morgan. She was cast as main in the television film “We’ll Take Manhattan” (2012) by John McKay, and since 2013, she is a main character in the action drama series “Peaky Blinders” created by Steven Knight. Meantime she starred opposite David Threlfall in the film “Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This” (2014).

Regarding her other roles landed on the big screen, she starred in “Flashbacks of a Fool” (2008), however, her first pregnancy made her retreat from filming “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” in 2007, in which she would play the role of Bellatrix of Detta (she was replaced by Helena Bonham Carter). Nevertheless, she later played Bellatrix’s sister, Narcissa Malfoy, in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”, and also took on the role in the two film adaptations (part I and part II) of the last book. She was cast as a main in the award winning film “Hugo” (2011), and in 2012, she had a role in the spy film “Skyfall”, the 23rd in the Bond series, which also won a number of awards, received critical acclaim and grossed over $1.1 billion at the box office.

1There are a lot of little lessons that can be taught around the home without sitting a child down and boring them to death with your philosophy of life!
2You can be moved by a performance on set, but when you see it on screen, it does nothing. Yet there will be someone you simply didn't notice on set that on screen: bam!
3What interests me about life most is people, and the why of the world. That's what theater looks at: it examines life, and gives it a cohesiveness that life doesn't have.
4When I was 14, I told my mother I intended to be in the House of Commons in the morning, in court in the afternoon and on stage in the evening. She realized then a fantasist had been born.
5You don't learn from good people - they've found what works for them and are completely original; you learn from the people who are bad. You think: 'Oh dear, I'm not going to do that.'
6Literature is reflecting what is happening in life. More and more women are having relationships with younger men. It's partly that women are not losing their figures now.
7I use my awards as doorstops. Others are in the office or in little cubbyholes in our library - they go between the books, because they actually look like arty pieces.
8The only time I ever spend alone is when I am working or when my husband is away filming. I put the kids to bed and have an hour and a half in the evening for myself.
9If I were in politics, I'd make both left and right sit down and make good decisions about national health. It's a huge problem, and it is something we all should be part of.
10I was very lucky. I left college, and Richard Eyre was in charge of the National Theater. I was offered the lead in 'The Seagull' with no experience and went on to do five plays there.
11I love theater because it's just me and the audience. It's the litmus test in acting, to be able to sustain a performance over one, two or three hours.
12I love dressing up. But I'm very low-maintenance; the week before an event, I'll choose something as quickly as possible and that's that. If I can do my own hair and make-up, even better. I like it to be fun.
13I love live performance and have huge admiration for people who can really do it. It's the same with music: I'll play a record and think that I'm not really into country or ragga. But, if it's live and the musicians are good, I'll listen to pretty much anything.
14I think I was brought up with an innate sense of responsibility because my dad was in the Foreign Office where you were in somebody else's country, and you were aware of your behavior. And my mum worked for the NHS, so you were aware of your responsibility to your country.
15I really love my food. My favorite thing is artichokes. I am not so much interested in desserts or chocolate, though. I also like to cook with my husband Damian.
16I had a great start in television; the first thing I did was an episode of 'Performance' called 'The Entertainer' with Michael Gambon playing Archie Rice.
17Childhood has definitely been invented, hasn't it? I think that's because people had children later, and we appreciate and cherish childhood a lot more.
18Appallingly, I hadn't thought about it one jot. I never daydreamed as a little girl of getting married and having children. I was as surprised to discover I was getting married as I was to discover I was up the duff.
19Working in films, there are hundreds of odd moments.
20To be honest, my husband and my children are my best friends.
21My own parents were very un-neurotic, so I never thought that I had to change enormously in order to become a parent.
22I've often sat down with people talking about a film I've been in, and they haven't realized I was in it.
23So often when you meet child actors, they're weird - they're freaks. No, I mean it, they're really odd people.
24It's what people create that makes my heart stop.
25I've become more confident as I have got older. I care less what others think.
26I was a real art freak when I was a teenager.
27I used to say that theater was my favorite thing. But the more I do film, the more I appreciate it.
28I spent my teenage years in Paris when my dad was stationed there, and I'd look at women in their forties and think, 'That's the age I want to be.'
29I love London, and it's a privilege for my children to grow up here.
30A script is only as good as the director who's making it.
31Every time, at any point of my life, I think now is always the best age to be.
32I listen to Radio 4 all the time. I didn't go to university, so that's my further education.
33I can sleep anywhere! I can come off stage during the interval of a play, lie down for four minutes then wake up feeling better.
34As I've got older, I feel more confident in my body, so wouldn't want to tamper with it.
35In the area we live, there's a large show of children who run from one house to another house to another house. That's lovely because it means all the children play together, and all the adults get to sit around and have coffees and read the papers or go to the park.
36Actually, I'm looking forward to being 50. Because to me, that's when a woman is at the pinnacle of her femininity and her womanhood.
37I think it's very important not to grow up with the unhealthy amount of attention that is sometimes put on people because they are 'actors'.
38America is such a nation of suppressed emotion, and when you arrive in L.A., you can smell the fear. It's the most alien country I've ever been to.
39I think change is good because it teaches you that it's nothing to be frightened of.
40People who are exceptionally intelligent are often lonely because there are few people as intelligent as them. I have two little children, and everyone says: 'I hope they're doing well in school. I hope they're bright.' And I think: 'Why would anyone want their children to be the brightest?' Academia is a lonely world.
41What I find most interesting about acting is transforming myself.
42A perfect weekend in London has to start on Friday night, by going to the theater, the Donmar or the National. It's a cliche for an actor, but I enjoy going as much as possible.
43The benefits of feminism for someone like my husband are fantastic. He can stay at home with the kids, he can take them to a park, he does the school run.
44What really matters to me is what my peers think.
45People are not considerate of others. They tend not to consider themselves as all living together, but see themselves only as individuals.
46If you think you are beautiful in a scene, you will come across as beautiful. I don't think looks are important; I think what's important is if someone is sexy.
47If you're constantly frightened of being unhappy, how bloody exhausting must that be?
48I feel as though my life is bathed in golden sunlight. And the really wonderful thing is that I know it.
49I'm a very positive person. My grandmother taught me that happiness is both a skill and a decision, and you are responsible for the outcome.
50I was lucky to learn early in life that you need money for food and shelter, but there's no ambition in having money in the bank for the sake of it!
51Theatre is liberating because it only works if it's truthful, That's what it requires. That's not true of film: the camera does lie. You can be moved by a performance on set, but when you see it on screen, it does nothing. Yet there will be someone you simply didn't notice on set that on screen: bam!
