British actress best known for her starring role as Lynda Day in the children's series Press Gang. She also had a supporting role as Saffron in Absolutely Fabulous, and more recently was the voice of Ginger in the movie Chicken Run. She of course does a lot of work in Britain we don't get to see on this side of the pond, which is a rotten deal IMHO, because she's terrific. My favourite of her roles has been as Nina in the Kenneth Branagh film A Midwinter's Tale, (also called In The Bleak Midwinter).

Born on September 9, 1968 in London, England, she is the daughter of actor Nadim Sawalha.
