She was nominated for a British Independent Film Award for her performance in Scarborough (2018). Hanna (2011), The Lobster (2015), The New Romantic (2018), and Pink Skies Ahead are among her other films (2020).

Barden was born on July 21, 1992, in Northallerton, North Yorkshire. She is from a working-class family. Her father works in a prison, and her mother is an accountant; she has two brothers. Her family relocated to Wetherby, West Yorkshire, when she was three years old. Wetherby High School was where Barden went to school. She became interested in acting through school and her father's love of movies. She began taking drama classes and working as a television extra at a local drama club. She dropped out of school when she was 15 years old.

Barden made her acting debut in 1999, playing a minor role in an episode of the CITV series My Parents Are Aliens. She went on to appear in episodes of the shows No Angels and The Chase.

Barden was 14 years old when she joined the cast of the ITV soap opera Coronation Street, where she played Kayleigh Morton from March 2007 until the Morton family left the show in September 2008. Barden made her film debut in Mrs Ratcliffe's Revolution, a comedy-drama released in 2007. In 2009, she played Pea in the stage production Jerusalem at London's Royal Court Theatre, which later transferred to the West End's Apollo Theatre.

Tamara Drewe, a dramatisation of the comic strip of the same name, was released in 2010, and Barden was nominated for Young British Performer of the Year by the London Film Critics' Circle. She played Sophie in Joe Wright's Hanna the following year. She appeared in the horror Comedown, the mystery-drama In the Dark Half, the psychological thriller Mindscape, and the indie Lullaby from 2012 to 2014.

Screen International named Barden a Star of Tomorrow in 2015. That year, she starred as Kit Carmichael in a two-part BBC One adaptation of Sadie Jones' debut novel The Outcast and as Liddy in a film adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd. In 2016, Barden starred as Ellen in the Channel 4 television film Ellen, as Jasmine in the comedy film Mindhorn, and as Justine in the third series of Penny Dreadful on Sky Atlantic. In 2017, she starred in the horror film Habit.
In 2017, Barden debuted as Alyssa in the Channel 4 and Netflix dark comedy-drama The End of the F***ing World, a role she would reprise for both series. She appeared in the films The New Romantic and Scarborough in 2018. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the British Independent Film Awards and the National Film Awards UK for the latter. She received the IMDb Breakout Star Award and was named a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit in 2018.

Barden appeared in Conan Gray's "Maniac" and Ozzy Osbourne's "Under the Graveyard" music videos in 2019, as well as the film Jungleland and the Australian Foxtel series Lambs of God. She starred in the upcoming films Holler and Pink Skies Ahead.

Barden was cast as Jane in the 2022 Netflix thriller Pieces of Her, an adaptation of Karin Slaughter's novel of the same name, in January 2021. She will appear in the ITV romantic comedy-drama You & Me as well as the football film An Unsuitable Game.

In a 2023 interview with The Daily Telegraph, Barden expressed her disdain for "working class tourism" in acting, naming non-binary actor Emma Corrin and pledging to only play working-class women from Yorkshire.

In March 2021, Barden married Jungleland director Max Winkler. Barden announced the birth of their first child, a daughter, on October 19, 2021.
Barden has spoken out about her anxiety and therapy experiences.
