Bryony Hannah (born 1984) is an Olivier Award-nominated English actress, best known as Cynthia Miller in BBC One‘s Call the Midwife.

Personal life[edit]

The daughter of a teacher and a retired Royal Navy lieutenant-commander, Hannah comes from Portsmouth, and after leaving school worked in a pub in Southampton. She was then accepted to RADA, having won a Laurence Olivier Bursary.[1]

In 2014, Hannah gave birth to her first child.[2]


Hannah has starred in Dead Boss as Christine.[3] She is perhaps best known for her work on Call the Midwife. Her character was introduced as Nurse Cynthia Miller.[4] During the course of the show, Cynthia decided she was being called to a religious life, and she became a nun. Her character currently lives as a nun at Nonnatus house, the same place she worked as a nurse.[5]

She received an Olivier Award Nomination for Best Performance in a Supporting Role for her role as Mary Tilford in The Children’s Hour.[6] Her other stage roles include performances in Earthquakes in London, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, The Pillowman and War Horse.

She provides the voice of Padget, Pando’s carer, in the CBeebies TV series, Bing.

In June 2017, Hannah announced that she was to leave Call The Midwife, and would not participate in Series 7.[citation needed]. Shortly afterwards it was announced that she would star in the posthumous premiere of Olivier Award winner Kevin Elyot‘s final play Twilight Song, alongside Adam Garcia and Paul Higgins.
