A child actress in many notable British television series since the age of six, Holliday (often credited as Holly) Grainger broke into a more adult market as the female lead in the U. K. romantic drama "The Scouting Book For Boys" (2009). She then went on to specialize in period costume dramas, with some of her higher profile roles including Lucrezia Borgia in Neil Jordan's three-season television series "The Borgias" (Showtime 2011-13), a part in a film version of "Jane Eyre" (2011), Estella in Mike Newell's adaptation of "Great Expectations" (2011), and an appearance opposite Keira Knightley and Jude Law in Joe Wright's adaptation of "Anna Karenina" (2012). Born in Didsbury, a suburb of the northern English city of Manchester, Grainger earned her first youthful television role on the situation comedy "All Quiet On The Preston Front" (BBC 1994-97). For the next decade and a half, she worked regularly in television, often showing up in iconic U.K. series including medical soap "Casualty" (BBC 1986- ), crime drama "Dalziel and Pascoe" (BBC 1996-2007) and family drama "Where The Heart Is" (BBC 1997-2006). Her American breakthrough came with her leading role as criminal mastermind Bonnie Parker in the historical mini-series "Bonnie and Clyde" (History 2013).
