Rose Ayling-Ellis is a multi-award nominated actress. She recently starred in AS YOU LIKE IT, directed by Josie Rourke. Her performance gained her an Olivier Award nomination as well as an Ian Charleson Award nomination. Rose is a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit for 2022, and winner of BAFTA’s Must-See Moment of the Year 2022 for her groundbreaking performance in STRICTLY COME DANCING. She was the very first deaf contestant to appear on the show and her presence in the competition has quickly come to be seen as a landmark moment in British television. Rose’s breakthrough role as ‘Frankie’ in EASTENDERS made British television history when she became the first deaf actress to play a deaf character who uses British Sign Language (BSL) on the soap. Her standout performance earned her an NTA nomination for two consecutive years, the first for Best Newcomer and the second for Best Serial Drama Performance.
Other upcoming projects for Rose include the BBC One documentary ‘Signs for Change’ with James Rogan, highly anticipated drama CODE OF SILENCE for ITV and Mammoth Screen, and her own comedy series which she is developing.
