Career

In April 2012 Corfield was nominated for Best Newcomer at The British Soap Awards for her role as Freya Wilson in Doctors.

In 2013 she received a nomination for Best Exit.

Corfield returned to Doctors in 2014 to play Freya's sister, Lois Wilson, and received a third British Soap Awards nomination - this time for Best On Screen Partnership with Danielle Henry.

Raised in Four Crosses near Llanfair Caereinion, Powys,[3] she became head girl at Welshpool High School.[4] Due to study English at university, she caught the acting bug through appearances with the Montgomeryshire Youth Theatre. After A-Levels, she approached Amnesty International to set up a theatre in education company, with which she toured for two years.[3] She then relocated to London and studied acting at RADA for three years.[5]

Since her graduation, Corfield has worked in both stage and television.

Television roles include Vera (TV series), Agatha Raisin, Game of Thrones, Candy Cabs, Rev, EastEnders, The Wrong Mans, Watson and Oliver, Stella, Holby City and Casualty.[2]

Video game roles include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Hearts of Stone and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.

Her theatre work includes shows at The Royal Court Theatre, The Young Vic, Soho Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company and with Headlong Theatre.

Corfield is constantly campaigning to improve the rights and visibility of the LGBTQIA Community. She has appeared in the Diversity Role Models Calendar, to show her support towards the prevention of homophobic bullying in UK schools, and is a proud Patron of Pride Cymru.

She also appeared in The Green Party's 2014 and 2016 Party Political Broadcasts to show her support for the Party.

In April 2019, it was announced that Corfield was cast in new women's prison drama series, Clink,[6] which is the first-ever scripted drama commissioned for 5Star. She portrays the role of Joyce Edevan, a woman convicted of murdering her girlfriend. She appeared in all ten episode of the first series. It is currently not known if or when the series will return.
