Florence Pugh (born on 3 January 1996) is a British actress. In 2014, she made her acting debut in the drama film The Falling. Pugh won a British Independent Film Award in 2016 for her performance as a young bride in the independent drama Lady Macbeth. Following her performance in the 2018 television film King Lear, she received critical acclaim for her lead role in the miniseries The Little Drummer Girl, for which she was nominated for a BAFTA Rising Star Award.
Pugh made her international debut in 2019 as professional wrestler Paige in the biographical sports film Fighting with My Family, a despondent American woman in the horror film Midsommar, and Amy March in the period drama Little Women. She was nominated for an Academy Award and a BAFTA Award for the last of these. Pugh received the Chopard Trophée at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. She appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero film Black Widow and the Disney+ miniseries Hawkeye in 2021 as Yelena Belova. Since then, she has appeared in the thriller Don't Worry, Darling and the drama The Wonder (both 2022).
27-year-old Florence Pugh was born in Oxford on January 3, 1996, to dancer Deborah and restaurateur Clinton Pugh. She has three siblings: Toby Sebastian, an actor and musician, Arabella Gibbins, an actress, and Rafaela "Raffie" Pugh. As a child, she had tracheomalacia, which required frequent hospitalisation. When Pugh was three years old, her family moved to Sotogrande, Spain, in the hopes that the warmer weather would improve her health. They lived there until she was six years old, when they returned to Oxford. Pugh also played Mary in a school nativity play when she was six years old, and she spoke in a Yorkshire accent. She was educated privately at Wychwood School and St Edward's School in Oxford, but she was dissatisfied with how the schools did not support her acting ambitions.
Early roles in a career (2014–2018)
Pugh made her professional acting debut in the 2014 drama The Falling, playing a precocious teenager opposite Maisie Williams while still in sixth form. Pugh was described as "remarkable" by Tara Brady of The Irish Times, and "striking" by Oliver Lyttelton of IndieWire. The actress was nominated for Best British Newcomer at the BFI London Film Festival in the same year, as well as Young British/Irish Performer of the Year by the London Film Critics' Circle. The following year, she was cast as a singer-songwriter in the dramedy pilot Studio City, co-starring Eric McCormack as the character's father. The pilot was not picked up for a full season. In light of pressures to change her appearance, Pugh would later characterise her experience in Studio City negatively. She mentioned that "All of the things they were trying to change about me - whether it was my weight, my appearance, the shape of my face, or the shape of my brows - were completely unrelated to what I wanted to do or the industry I wanted to work in. I expected the film industry to be like The Falling, but this was what the top of the game looked like, and I felt like I'd made a huge mistake."
In 2016, Pugh starred in the independent drama Lady Macbeth, based on Nikolai Leskov's novella Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, and in the first series of the ITV detective series Marcella. She portrayed Katherine, an unhappy married bride who becomes violent in the former. Pugh said she was drawn to the role because she likes characters with "confusing or at least interesting" motivations. The actress received praise for her performance. She also credited the film with rekindling her interest in film after being discouraged by Studio City. Guy Lodge praised her portrayal of the character's "complex, under-the-skin transformation" in his Variety review. For the role, she received the BIFA Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a British Independent Film.
Pugh was nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star Award at the 71st British Academy Film Awards in 2018. She went on to play Cordelia to Anthony Hopkins' titular King Lear in Richard Eyre's television film King Lear, and she appeared in the short film Leading Lady Parts in support of the Time's Up movement. Pugh later played Elizabeth de Burgh in the Netflix historical film Outlaw King, alongside Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce. "Excellent despite her thankless role," wrote Charles Bramesco of The Guardian. She then starred in a six-part miniseries adaptation of John le Carré's spy novel The Little Drummer Girl, in which she played an actress caught up in a 1970s espionage plot. Her performance was well received. Vanity Fair's Richard Lawson praised Pugh for being "terrific throughout" and added that she "smartly mixes earthiness with sophistication, wisdom with naiveté."
Breakthrough and critical acclaim (2019–present)
Pugh starred in three major films in 2019 and was recognised as having made an international breakthrough. Paige, a professional wrestler, was her first role in Fighting with My Family, a comedy-drama about Paige's career. The film premiered to positive reviews at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Geoffrey Macnab of The Independent credited the actress for being "completely convincing as the wrestler", adding that she showed "the same defiance, scruffy glamour and self-deprecating humour as the real life ... Paige". Pugh then starred in Ari Aster's horror film Midsommar, in which she and Jack Reynor play an American couple who travel to Sweden and encounter a cult. Critics praised Pugh's portrayal of the desolate Dani Ardor, describing it as "amazingly vivid" by David Edelstein of Vulture.
Pugh's final film release of the year was Little Women, a Greta Gerwig-directed period drama film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's novel of the same name. She portrayed Amy March, a fickle artist, from age 12 into adulthood, and has said that the character is in a "sweet spot of not knowing how to deal with her emotions". The film received positive reviews and grossed $209 million. The Hollywood Reporter's David Rooney praised Pugh's "disarming grace, humour, and a willful streak that grows almost imperceptibly into wisdom" in handling the "tricky contradictions" of the role. For her performance, Pugh received BAFTA and Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero film Black Widow, Pugh played spy Yelena Belova. She described the film as being about "girls who are stolen from around the world". The film, which was released in 2021, received positive reviews from critics, who praised the actress's unique performance. Caryn James of BBC Culture credited Pugh for making Belova "the most vibrant person in the film, more lived-in than most action-movie characters". Later that year, she returned to the role in the Disney+ series Hawkeye.
In 2022, Pugh appeared in the thriller Don't Worry Darling, directed by Olivia Wilde, and the drama The Wonder, based on Emma Donoghue's novel of the same name. She allegedly clashed with Wilde while filming the former, causing her to limit the amount of promotion she did for the film. Pugh's performance in Don't Worry, Darling was deemed superior to the film by critics at the 79th Venice International Film Festival. She portrayed a nurse in 1862 who is sent to investigate an alleged supernatural miracle in The Wonder. The film's main asset, according to The Times' Kevin Maher, is Pugh's "impossibly vivid and convincing" performance. She was nominated for another BIFA for it. She portrayed Goldilocks in the DreamWorks animated film Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which grossed over $340 million worldwide.
Pugh will produce and star in A Good Person, a comedy-drama directed by Zach Braff. She will play Communist Party USA member Jean Tatlock in Christopher Nolan's biopic Oppenheimer, which will star Cillian Murphy. Pugh will also reprise her role as Princess Irulan in Dune: Part Two, the follow-up to the 2021 science fiction film.
Pugh has been nominated for two Academy Awards and one BAFTA Award. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her work in Little Women, as well as a BAFTA Rising Star Award. Lady Macbeth earned her a British Independent Film Award for her performance. She was nominated for a Gotham Award for Best Actress for her performance in Midsommar. Pugh was awarded the Trophée Chopard at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, which is given to young actors by a professional jury to recognise and encourage their careers.

Pugh performed cover songs on YouTube as Flossie Rose from 2013 to 2016. Pugh appeared on her brother's song "Midnight," which was released on May 15, 2021. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she took part in the series Acting for a Cause for a live reading of Kenneth Lonergan's play This Is Our Youth to help raise funds for the Entertainment Industry Foundation, a nonprofit organisation.
Pugh was named to Forbes magazine's annual 30 Under 30 list, which recognises the 30 most influential people in Europe under the age of 30, in the entertainment category in 2019. In 2021, Time magazine named her to its 100 Next list, which recognises rising stars and emerging leaders in their fields. She was named one of the 50 greatest actors of all time in a 2022 Empire magazine readers' poll. Terming her "one of the very best of her generation", the magazine attributed her success to bringing "a grounded empathy to her characters".
