Lucy Punch (born December 30, 1977) is a British comic actress. Typically cast as dim and conceited characters who deserve their comeuppance
The London-bred Punch attended UCL to study French and art history, but was offered an acting job and subsequently dropped out. That role was Eveline in the period sitcom Let Them Eat Cake
. The series bombed, but Lucy quickly became a known face on British TV. By 2004 she had graduated to film work, but migrated to Los Angeles to star in the short-lived sitcom The Class
Then came the rocky patch. Finding herself out of work, Punch barely scraped together cash for an economy flight to London, where Woody Allen
was holding auditions for You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger
after his star, Nicole Kidman
, dropped out due to a scheduling conflict. She nailed it; and thus began her life as a Hollywood "It" girl.
Hopefully, she'll one day be allowed to play someone besides
an airheaded, social-climbing floozy. Dare to dream!
