IMDb profile

Anastasia Griffith is one of the supporting actors of Once Upon a Time, portraying the role of Kathryn Nolan/Abigail.


Personal life

Born in Paris, France to an Irish mother and an American father, Griffith was brought up in west London with six older brothers, one of whom is actor Jamie Bamber.

She completed a degree in the History of Art at the University of Bristol, and later trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art before moving into acting.

She dated Welsh actor Michael Sheen for a number of months in 2004, after meeting on the set of Dirty Filthy Love.


Griffith's on-screen acting debut was in a minor role in the 2004 made-for-television movie She's Gone. Also in 2004, she appeared in more prominent roles in the television movie Dirty Filthy Love, the comedy film Alfie and the short film Turn, as well as featuring in The Headsman and guest-starring on the British comedy The Worst Week of My Life in 2005.

Griffith won her role as Katie Connor on the 2007 television series Damages after taking a last-minute audition a month after she moved to New York City. The role saw her with an imitated American accent; she says "[the producers] were a little concerned at first about a Brit playing an American, especially because they already had an Australian (Rose Byrne) playing an American", and so she addressed them in an American accent from beginning to end of the audition. Griffith returned to the series as a main castmember for the second season, which aired in 2009.

She guest-starred in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and also in the second episode of the television series New Amsterdam. She was later cast in the NBC medical drama Trauma, which began airing in September 2009. In May 2010, after 18 episodes, the show was officially cancelled by NBC.

Griffith appeared in the 2011 Lifetime television movie And Baby Will Fall as Ivy Rose.
