A popular face on both the big and small screen, British actress Keeley Hawes is perhaps best known for her role as Zoe in the BAFTA award-winning BBC drama series "MI-5." She also took on the role of Kitty Butler in the controversial BBC production, "Tipping the Velvet," for which she received wide acclaimed.

Other notable television credits include "Marple: The Murder Is Announced," "Sex & Lives," "The Murdoch Mysteries," "A Knights Tale," "Othello," "Wives and Daughters," "Our Mutual Friend" and "Karaoke." She was also seen as the female lead in "After Thomas," a television drama based on the true story of one couple's struggle to meet the challenges of their child's autism, and "Under the Green Wood Tree," as well as "Macbeth" as part of BBC1's Shakespeare series, "ShakespeaRe-Told," alongside James McAvoy.

More recently, Hawes starred in BBC's miniseries "Upstairs Downstairs" and "Ambassadors," crime drama "Ashes to Ashes" and comedy drama "Mutual Friends," as well as ITV's mystery crime drama series "Identity." She also had recurring roles in "Line of Duty," "The Tunnel," "The Hollow Crown" and "The Vicar of Dibley."

Hawes never intended to be an actress. As a child she lived near the Sylvia Young Theatre School and just went along for the fun of it. After spending years learning the business alongside people such as Emma Bunton, Dani Behr and Denise van Outen, Hawes was spotted in Oxford Street and became a model. It wasn't long before she landed a part in Dennis Potter's "Karaoke," and she hasn't looked back since.
