As a graduate of the prestigious Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Lyndsey is an acocmplished actress in film, theatre and television.

Having worked with some of the best actors and directors in the industry, she is mostly recognised for her leading roles in THREE DAYS OF RAIN at the Apollo in the West End, an intimate three-hander and ‘an outstanding cast, Marshal is mesmerising’ (Variety) with James McAvoy and Nigel Harman; the BBC’s acclaimed period drama GARROW’S LAW co-starring Andrew Buchan and the epic international series ROME; an ambitious co-production between HBO and the BBC with Lyndsey playing the enchanting Cleopatra to James Purefoy’s Marc Antony.

Boasting a very impressive theatre CV, Lyndsey has starred in several productions both at the Royal Court Theatre (THE PRIDE, REDUNDANT, FIREFACE) and National Theatre in London, where she was ‘on very strong form’ (The Telegraph) as Emilia in Sir Nicholas Hytner’s production of OTHELLO starring Rory Kinnear and Adrian Lester. The Donmar Warehouse, Sheffield Crucible, Bristol Old Vic and Almeida also feature heavily in her theatre credits. She has been nominated for ‘Best Support Actress’ at the Olivier Awards, ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards and ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Critics Circle Theatre Awards.

Marshal has enjoyed a variety of leading roles in some of our best primetime dramas over the last decade. Notable dramas include A SHORT STAY IN SWITZERLAND with Julie Walters; Lucy in cult supernatural series BEING HUMAN; TITANIC penned by Downton Abbey writer Julian Fellows, alongside a cast including Celia Imrie, Timothy West, Toby Jones and Josephine de la Baume; tense and thrilling drama with Christopher Ecclestone and Dervla Kirwan called THE FUSE for the BBC, and, more recently another gripping BBC three-parter FROM DARKNESS also featuring acting heavyweights Anne Marie Duff, Johnny Harris and Luke Newberry.

In film, she starred in the Warner Bros feature film HEREAFTER under the direction of Clint Eastwood, where the Guardian picked her out as giving ‘a standout performance’ among a cast that included Matt Damon and Cecile de France. Further noteworthy films include THE HOURS with Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep and IN THE DARK HALF with newcomer Jessica Barden.

Next up she stars opposite Michael Fassbender in Film 4’s TRESPASS AGANIST US. Infused with action, crime and a strong sense of humour, the film transports you into a hidden world tucked into a corner of England's green and pleasant land. As the letter of the law finally catches up with Chad (Fassbender), he is torn between the archaic principles of his father (Brendan Gleeson) and what he believes is best for his wife (Marshal) and children. The cast is stellar with Brendan Gleeson, Sean Harris and Rory Kinnear all taking prominent roles in a film which boasts a brilliant script by Alastair Siddons.
