Brit actor Sarah Lancashire was born on this day in 1964, and is from Oldham, which is in Lancashire.
Lancashire has had a long and successful career, including early roles on the soap Coronation Street and Where the Heart Is. I regret to say I did not notice much that she was in until I saw her in Happy Valley, which was a hell of a star turn, even though she plays a very unglamorous cop dealing with a lot of issues.
What else has she been up to during the past year? Well, she appeared in a main role in the BBC drama MotherFatherSon (which also starred Richard Gere). She was also in the Channel 4 crime drama miniseries Kiri.
She’s an extremely versatile actress, and has worked in theater and film as well. She had a role in the 2019 film Yesterday, and is also slated to appear in the 2020 film Everybody’s Talking about Jamie.
And through it all she struggled with depression. In this article she very bravely talks about how debilitation depression can be.
Happy Birthday, Sarah Lancashire!
