Kirby is best known for playing Princess Margaret in The Crown and most recently, a woman consumed by grief after losing a child in Netflix's Pieces of a Woman — a role which has earned her numerous Golden Globe, SAG, BAFTA and Oscar nominations.

'You always have that slight imposter syndrome that you never forget,' she explained. 'I remember the first time I worked with [Sir] John Hurt [who played Ollivander in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone], he was nervous before a scene and he said to me, "I'm just worried I am going to be found out."
