Career

Davis appeared briefly in an episode of The Detectives, a show created by and starring her father (Jasper Carrott). She played Maria Lucas in the BBC's 1995 production of Pride and Prejudice and also had a role in the 1996 Christmas special of One Foot in the Grave. After her breakthrough role in The Office, she appeared in the film Sex Lives of the Potato Men and Shaun of the Dead (both 2004), whilst continuing to play Hayley Jordan in The Archers on BBC Radio 4. She gave up the latter role when her other acting responsibilities made it impossible to continue; the part was recast in September 2005.

In 2006, Davis appeared as the "Fashion TV" host on ABC's hit Ugly Betty, and later that year played writer Lucy Kenwright in NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. In 2008, she appeared in several episodes of the US series Reaper. In 2010 Davis starred in ITV's six-episode comedy drama, Married Single Other, and also appeared in a guest role in The Mentalist alongside her then-husband Owain Yeoman.

Davis also stars in the John Landis-produced thriller Some Guy Who Kills People. In 2012, Davis had a guest voice part in Family Guy for the episode "Be Careful What You Fish For". Davis appeared in series two, episode 8 of the BBC series Death in Paradise (2013). She became a Patron for the performing arts group Theatretrain in 2012.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Davis plays the role of Etta Candy in Wonder Woman (2017). Her performance marked the first live action cinematic portrayal of that comic book character. Davis has said of the character: “She’s a woman in a man’s world and so being heard and seen aren’t the easiest things, but it kind of doesn’t deter her. Etta is unapologetically herself and I think that that’s the thing that has drawn me to her the most... it took quite a while in my life to be unapologetically myself.”

Personal life

Davis is the daughter of Hazel Jackson and comedian Jasper Carrott. She underwent a kidney transplant after being diagnosed with kidney failure during a medical examination that she underwent prior to taking up her role in Pride & Prejudice. Her mother, Hazel, donated the kidney. Around Christmas 2005 she was hospitalised once again because of kidney failure, but has since recovered. Davis is also a diabetic.

On 9 December 2006, Davis married Welsh actor Owain Yeoman at St Paul's Cathedral, London. The wedding was attended by fellow The Office stars and writers. Davis was entitled to marry there as her father is an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) and St Paul's contains the chapel of the order. The couple separated in January 2011 and divorced in October 2011.

She participated in PETA's campaign against the Guards Division's continued use of traditional bearskin caps.
