Kerry Condon is an Irish actress born in 1983 in Tipperary. Having studied at the Dublin Theatre Arts School, she made her TV debut in a two-episode arc of the BBC series Ballykissangel in 1999, and her film debut later that year with a role in Alan Parker's Academy-Award nominated adaptation of Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes.

At the age of 19, she became the youngest actress ever to play Ophelia for the Royal Shakespeare Company, in Steven Pimlott's staging of Hamlet. Her other stage work includes Wilson Milam's The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Paddy Kineen's The Lonesome West and a role in Garry Hynes recent New York run of The Cripple of Inishmaan.

Following Angela's Ashes, Kerry appeared alongside Imelda Staunton in the Steve Barron film Rat. In 2001, she starred in How Harry Became a Tree by Goran Paskaljevic, and in 2003 she played Kate Kelly alongside Heath Ledger, Orlando Bloom and Naomi Watts in Ned Kelly. In 2005, Kerry Condon appeared with Jet Li, Morgan Freeman and Bob Hoskins in Unleashed and also made her first appearance in the hit HBO/BBC series Rome. Kerry appeared in all 22 episodes of the acclaimed show between 2005 and 2007, playing the role of Octavia of the Julii.
