About Nicola Roy

Born in Edinburgh, trained in London, Nicola Roy is considered "One of Scotlands leading comic actresses" (Joyce McMillan 2020).

Whilst this may be true Roy has shown her versatility in serious television roles for the BBC and Shed Productions. Her theatre work has taken her across the main stages of Scotland and further including the National, recently scoring an international success winning the critics' circle award in Liz Lochhead's Tartuffe which took her to Australia.
