Emily Bevan starred opposite Luke Newberry in the award-winning series In The Flesh in 2013, playing daring and loveable zombie, Amy Dyer. Before this breakthrough role, she had worked predominantly in comedy, where credits include Hung Out for Channel 4, feature St Trinian's, Russell Howard’s Good News and Peter Capaldi’s award-winning The Thick of It. Below are some mentions of Emily in In The Flesh:
'The terrific young cast, particularly Emily Bevan as Amy, deserve far better than to die not once, as has happened already, but twice, through the vicissitudes of the Beeb.'
The Evening Standard
‘Of the cast, Emily Bevan has been the pinnacle: her interpretation of Amy is a seductive blend of playfulness and peril. The conclusion rewards her with a pivotal role, and even though this drama has gone, it won’t be forgotten.'
After studying Classical Acting at Central School of Speech and Drama, Emily proved she is an acting powerhouse with her starring role in J.K. Rowling’s much-anticipated 2015 drama The Casual Vacancy, an HBO and BBC co-production. Playing Mary Fairbrother, the wife of Barry Fairbrother (Rory Kinnear), the most respected man in his community. Mary’s world descended into deep despair, mourning and eventual madness after a catastrophe occured in the first episode. Deeply moving, Emily gave a stunning performance in the series, which co-starred Michael Gambon, Keeley Hawes and Julia McKenzie. She also played the key role of Salit in The Ark, another epic BBC1 primetime drama starring David Threlfall and Joanne Whalley as Noah and Emmie.
Emily is also a singer/songwriter, mainly acoustic folk music, and a very talented poet.
