Early life[edit]

Kendrick played Anne Frank in the 2009 miniseries The Diary of Anne Frank. She said that her approach to playing Frank was to “peel back the layers of idolisation and to think of the characters just as normal people”. Her performance was praised for “bringing fresh realism to an iconic role”.[3]

In 2009, she made her stage début as Juliet in a Shakespeare’s Globe production of Romeo and Juliet.[4] In December 2010, she played maid Ivy Morris in BBC One‘s revival of Upstairs Downstairs. She did not return for the second series, broadcast in 2012.

In 2011, Kendrick appeared in the BBC Radio 4 production of Life and Fate. She also played the character Allison in Being Human in the episode “Puppy Love” in 2012. She returned to the role in the ultimate episode of the series “The Last Broadcast” in 2013.

In 2012, Kendrick was cast in the role of Meera Reed in season 3 of Game of Thrones.[5][6] In 2013 she returned to the stage in In the Republic of Happiness and The Low Road at the Royal Court Theatre; she is also playing the character Constance on Sky1‘s Chickens. Kendrick also played the part of Helen in Misfits.[7]

2016 saw Kendrick perform her first lead film role in The Levelling.[8][9][10]
