Her further credits include Sony Picture’s adaptation of the international bestseller A Street Cat Named Bob, alongside Luke Treadaway and she took on a supporting role in the adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s Filth opposite James McAvoy and Jamie Bell. Earlier this year she completed a long-awaited run on stage in ‘the mother of all roles’, leading the cast in Nicholas Hytner’s Alys, Always at The Bridge Theatre in London (Hytner) and winning acclaim for her performance with The Times citing her as a ‘West End star’ where you ‘really can’t take your eyes off her’.

Joanne has added a further string to her bow as she set up her production company Run After It, with numerous projects in development.
