Ellen Robertson played Poppy opposite Kaya Scodelario and Rufus Sewell in the hit BBC One Agatha Christie mini-series THE PALE HORSE. She recently filmed the BBC Three series, IN MY SKIN. 

Over December 2019 and January 2020, Ellen appeared in the London transfer of SNOWFLAKE by Mike Bartlett at the Kiln Theatre. Ellen starred in the Oxford run of the show last year. The show, and Ellen, received stellar reviews. 

Praise for Ellen in SNOWFLAKE:

★★★★★  ‘Ellen Robertson delivers really fine work as the third character, who takes the conflict to another level.’ WhatsOnStage

★★★★ ‘Ellen Robertson impresses as daughter Maya, prickling with cold hostility that barely covers the roiling, raw emotions beneath the surface.’  The Stage

★★★★  ‘Ellen Robertson puts in a late, touching appearance as Maya.’ The Guardian

Ellen and her comedy partner, Charly Clive, had several sell-out runs of their debut show - BRITNEY - at both the Soho Theatre and the Battersea Arts Centre across 2018 and 2019. ‘Britney’ first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, before going to the VAULT Festival in 2017, where it was recommended by The Guardian, London Evening Standard and Time Out.

Praise for BRITNEY:

★★★★★ 'Hysterical... Britney have mastered a unique style of multi-format storytelling' Fringe Biscuit

★★★★★ 'I have never been so moved by a Fringe performance before. Britney touched me in ways no comedy show has' Edin Blogger

★★★★★ 'Taking a wholly unfunny subject and turning it in to a comedy cannot possibly be an easy task, but that’s exactly what Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson have done with Britney. Not only that, they’ve done it incredibly well... Britney is laugh-out-loud funny and told with love' Theatre Weekly

★★★★ ​'At once as comforting as it is side-splittingly funny' EdFringe Review

As a writer, Ellen’s first play ‘Nesting’ was produced at the Watermill Theatre in 2017, before going on tour. She has recently written and starred in an episode of new web series ‘Post Coital’, alongside Will Attenborough. She is currently working on a play ‘Any Willing Provider’ about her time working as a GP Receptionist in Hackney, and ‘Benders’, the first scene of which was performed at the Arcola Theatre in May. 

Ellen and her writing and comedy partner, Charly Clive, are developing a scripted television project with Pure producers Drama Republic.

She started life (not literally) at Cambridge University and was a member of comedy troupe The Footlights: ‘the most renowned sketch troupe of them all’.
