An image of Olivia Colman as Janice Pearce.

A prolific comedy actress in radio, theatre and TV Olivia is probably best known for her TV roles as Sophie Chapman in Peep Show, Harriet Schulenburg in Green Wing and her work in Mitchell and Webb's sketch show, That Mitchell and Webb Look. And of course you can hear her on a wide range of radio comedy shows.

Her flourishing film career includes the British mockumentary film Confetti (in which she plays a practising naturist), Alice in Grow Your Own and Doris Thatcher in Hot Fuzz.
