Emerald Fennell played Nurse Patsy Mount in Call the Midwife before taking on the role of Camilla Parker Bowles in Netflix’s The Crown. As well as writing Oscar-winning films, Emerald’s writing credits also include the hugely successful Killing Eve for which she was also executive producer.

The screenwriter and actor directed Promising Young Woman while pregnant with her first child. She is now pregnant with her second baby with her partner Chris Vernon and collected her award wearing custom Gucci trainers instead of high heels on the red carpet.
