Adjoa Andoh
One of Britain’s leading actors, Adjoa Andoh has won global acclaim as Lady Danbury in Netflix's most popular show yet, Bridgerton—a role that saw her nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress at the NAACP Image Awards. Adjoa is also set to make waves later this year, when she takes on the role of Nenneke in the hit Netflix fantasy drama, The Witcher.
On the small screen in 2020 she joined the cast of BBC1’s Silent Witness as guest lead, playing tough cop DI Nina Rosen. And at the end of 2019, she was spellbinding as Dr. Isaccs in the psychological thriller Fractured.
Adjoa is a renowned stage actor, celebrated for lead roles at the Royal Shakespeare Company, The National Theatre, and the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, where in 2019 she conceived, co-directed and played Richard II, in the UK's first all-women-of-color production. She made her Hollywood debut in 2009, starring alongside Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela’s Chief of Staff, Brenda Mazibuko, in Clint Eastwood’s biographical sports film Invictus.
The undisputed queen of audio and radio drama, she has been a BBC radio actor for more than 30 years and is an award-winning narrator of more than 150 audiobooks. 
Adjoa Andoh is an Associate Artist at the Royal Shakespeare Company, Senior Associate Artist at The Bush Theatre and a Fairtrade Ambassador.
