Who is Millie Brady from Roadkill, the new BBC political drama? Meet the actress who plays Lily Laurence on the show. Starring Hugh Laurie, Roadkill has been making waves through its introspective look at politicians and political ambition, and through its star-studded cast.

Who is Millie Brady?

Millie Brady is a British actress and model who was born in London, but moved around the country while growing up. Her full name is Camilla Eve Brady and she was born on 24 December 1993.

She is currently dating fellow actor Charley Palmer Rothwell, who is the son of EastEnders star Patsy Palmer. His most notable appearances to date have been in Dunkirk and The Darkest Hour.

Brady also dated One Direction singer Harry Styles in 2013, another star to appear in Dunkirk.

What is BBC’s Roadkill?

Roadkill is a political drama written by playwright David Hare. The series follows Hugh Laurie as a Conservative politician trying to rise up the ranks of the party, no matter the cost.

Laurie has described Peter Laurence as a “man who is relatively free of the gravity of guilt and whose life mission is to keep moving forward and not to look back”.

It seems we can expect a whirlwind of political power plays, competitive politicians and inflammatory family dynamics.

Who does Millie Brady play in Roadkill?

In Roadkill, Millie Brady plays Lily Laurence, daughter of Hugh Laurie’s Conservative MP Peter Laurence.

She’s a student at Leeds University, but gets caught up in a drug scandal, made all the more public because of her father’s high-profile role.

We can expect a large amount of tension, political intrigue and corruption from the BBC series, available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

Millie Brady’s previous roles

Millie Brady is probably best known for her work as Violette Selfridge in ITV’s hit series Mr Selfridge.

She has also appeared as Catia in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur film, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, as well as playing Aethelflaed in Netflix’s The Last Kingdom.

Her most recent work includes roles in the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit and BBC’s Roadkill.
