Being an actress was kind of like when you’re a kid, and you want to run away and join the circus, it’s something you really want to do, but then you grew up and got a proper job. It was a dream, but I didn’t think it would ever be reality, and yet here I am![4]

Career[edit]

McGrath originally wanted to work in fashion journalism and took a job at Image magazine,[3] before becoming a wardrobe assistant on the set of The Tudors. While working on The Tudors, McGrath was advised to try acting, so she sent photographs around to Irish agents.[4] She said:

Being an actress was kind of like when you’re a kid, and you want to run away and join the circus, it’s something you really want to do, but then you grew up and got a proper job. It was a dream, but I didn’t think it would ever be reality, and yet here I am![4]

McGrath was cast in Damage, an Irish TV-movie in 2007. She also starred in Bedrock Productions’s play La Marea at the Dublin Theatre Festival 2007.[5] She appeared in the feature films Eden and Freakdog in 2008, before being cast as Morgana Pendragon in Merlin.[6]

In 2010, McGrath was cast in Madonna‘s directorial debut W.E., an Edward VIII biopic. McGrath played Lady Furness, the king’s former mistress who introduces him to Wallis Simpson.[8]

2011 saw McGrath film the comedy-drama A Princess for Christmas in Romania.[9] In September 2011, McGrath voice-acted the lead character in the Irish animated short film Tríd an Stoirm (Through the Storm).[10] Later that month, McGrath was cast as Oriane Congost in Labyrinth.[11]

McGrath was reunited with her The Tudors co-star and close friend Jonathan Rhys Meyers in NBC and Sky Living‘s horror drama TV series Dracula, she portrayed Lucy Westenra .[12] In June 2013, McGrath co-starred in episode four of the Channel 4 show Dates alongside Gemma Chan as a young lesbian on the dating scene.[13] In November 2014, McGrath co-starred in a Hozier music video for the song From Eden.[14]
