Alice Lowe is an English actress, writer, and director. She began in comedy, in the cult smash, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, playing Madeleine Wool and Liz Asher. Her turn in the series led her to further television work, with regular parts in My Life In Film, Horrible Histories, and Ruddy Hell! It’s Harry And Paul.
Together with her prolific television career, Alice has appeared in some of the most successful British comedy films of the last century, appearing in The World’s End, Hot Fuzz, and co-starring in Jamie Adams’ Black Mountain Poets, and Ben Wheatley’s blackly comic road movie, Sightseers, which she co-wrote with Steve Oram.
In 2016, Alice wrote, directed and starred in Prevenge, a subversive comedy about a pregnant woman who starts to become guided into a murderous rampage by her unborn baby. The film opened the year’s Venice Critic’s Week and went on to get rave reviews, securing Alice as one of the most interesting voices in modern British independent film.
Additional credits include worldwide hit, Paddington, BIFA-winner Adult Life Skills, and BAFTA-nominated The Ghoul. In the coming months, 2019 sees Alice appear in The Fight, with Jessica Hynes and Sometimes Always Never, alongside Bill Nighy and Sam Riley.
