Leanne Best stars in "Ripper Street" on BBC America as Jane Cobden — the first woman elected to the London County Council.

A graduate of Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA), Leanne Best has established herself as one of the outstanding Liverpool actresses of her generation. She was nominated twice for Best Performance in a Play by the Theatre Awards U.K. — for Frank McGuinness' "The Match Box" and Walter Meierjohann's "The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui," both at Liverpool Playhouse, where she was also seen in "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "The Hypochondriac." Her other stage credits include "Unprotected" and "The May Queen," both at Liverpool Everyman; "Damned by Despair" at the National Theatre; and the national tour of "Corrie!"

On UK television, Best has appeared in episodes of "Stepping Up," "Doctors," "Moving On," "New Street Law," "Wire in the Blood" and "Casualty," as well as the telefilm "Heatwave."
