Profile Bio Text
Lucy Clare Davis (born 17 February 1973) is an English actress. She is best known for playing the character Dawn Tinsley in the BBC comedy The Office and as Dianne in the horror-comedy movie Shaun of the Dead.
Davis appeared briefly in an episode of The Detectives, a show created by and starring her father (Jasper Carrott). She played Maria Lucas in the BBC's 1995 production of Pride and Prejudice and also had a role in the 1996 Christmas special of One Foot in the Grave. After her breakthrough role in The Office, she appeared in the film Sex Lives of the Potato Men and Shaun of the Dead (both 2004), whilst continuing to play Hayley Jordan in The Archers on BBC Radio 4. She gave up the latter role when her other acting responsibilities made it impossible to continue; the part was recast in September 2005.
She appeared in the episode Elephants and Hens of UK TV programme Black Books alongside Tamsin Greig, Olivia Colman.
In 2006, Davis appeared as the 'Fashion TV' host on ABC's hit Ugly Betty, and later that year played writer Lucy Kenwright in NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. In 2008, she appeared in several episodes of the U.S. series Reaper.
In 2010 Davis starred in ITV's six-episode comedy drama, Married Single Other, and also appeared in a guest role in The Mentalist alongside her then husband Owain Yeoman. Davis also stars in the John Landis-produced thriller Some Guy Who Kills People. In 2012, Davis had a guest voice part in Family Guy for the episode "Be Careful What You Fish For".
In 2012, Davis became a Patron for the performing arts group Theatretrain.
In 2013 Davis appeared in series two, episode 8 of the BBC series Death in Paradise.
Davis is the daughter of comedian Jasper Carrott (né Robert Davis). She underwent a kidney transplant after being diagnosed with kidney failure during a physical leading up to her role in Pride & Prejudice. Her mother, Hazel, donated the kidney. Around Christmas 2005 she was hospitalised once again because of kidney failure, but has since recovered. Davis is also a diabetic.
On 9 December 2006, Davis married fellow British actor Owain Yeoman at St Paul's Cathedral, London. The wedding was attended by fellow The Office stars and writers. Davis and Yeoman were permitted to marry there as her father, Jasper Carrott, was awarded an OBE in the New Year's Honours in 2002 and St Paul's contains the Chapel of the Order. They divorced in October 2011.
She participated in PETA's campaign against the Queen's Guard's continued use of traditional bearskin caps.
