      Birthday: Jul 12, 1966

      Birthplace: Maidstone, England, UK

      Born February 23, 1967 in the county of Kent, England, Tamsin Greig (pronounced "Greg") was one of three daughters born to a Polish-Jewish mother and a father she jokingly described as "Scottish-puffin." Her father was reportedly in his sixties when Grieg was born, and found it difficult to communicate with three young girls in his home. However, he found common ground with Greig through a love of slapstick comedy, which in turn helped to inform her later choice of career. She graduated from the University of Birmingham with a degree in Drama and Theatre Arts - and a course in typing under her belt, a suggestion from her mother in the event that acting did not work out for her. It proved to be a sage idea, as Greig supported herself as a temp worker for the Family Planning Association and later, at the Midland Art Centre Children's Theatre. One of her first big roles was as Prof. Wiseman in "Blue Heaven" (1992-94). Greig went on to portray Lamia in "Neverwhere" (BBC Two, 1996), Valerie Marsden in "Blind Men" (1997-98), Dr. Caroline Todd in "Green Wing" (BBC America/Channel 4, 2004-006) and Alice Chenery in "Love Soup" (BBC America/BBC 1, 2005). She was Anne Frank's mother Edith in the TV movie "The Diary of Anne Frank" (PBS, 2010) and also appeared in the miniseries "White Heat" (BBC America, 2012) and "The Guilty" (ITV1, 2013). More recently Greig acted in the digital series "Sexy Beast" (Paramount+, 2014) and will appear as Lady Helen Gwinear in the Apple TV+ historical series, "The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin '' scheduled for release in 2024.
