Early life and education

Doherty is of Irish heritage. Doherty’s parents divorced when she was 4 and she began acting in Sunday drama classes with her older sister Grace Josephine Doherty shortly after. She studied at Hazelwick School in Crawley, where she grew up. A talented footballer, Doherty played in midfield for and captained the Crawley Wasps and was scouted by Chelsea Women; she reached the age where she “had to commit” to either football or acting and chose the latter.

Doherty took a one-year course at the Guildford School of Acting (2011–12) before training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School (2012–15).

Whilst training, Doherty won the Stephen Sondheim Society Student Performer of the Year Award (SSSSPOTY) in 2015 for her rendition of “Broadway Baby” from the Sondheim musical Follies.

Theatre

Doherty is a frequent theatre actress. Since graduating from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2015, she has appeared in a number of productions at some of London’s leading theatres. Doherty’s performances have consistently attracted positive reviews from leading theatre critics. Michael Billington named Doherty as ‘one of the year’s greatest discoveries’ after her performance in My Name Is Rachel Corrie, a one-woman play about the activist Rachel Corrie. Doherty starred in Jack Thorne‘s play Junkyard, which led What’s On Stage reviewer Kris Hallett to write “Doherty is the star here, and by rights will soon be a star full-stop”. Her leading performance in Alan Ayckbourn‘s play The Divide at the Old Vic Theatre was described by Dominic Cavendish for The Daily Telegraph as having “star-wattage as bright as anything”.

Career

Doherty’s first television appearance was in a 2016 episode of Call the Midwife, followed by a role in the 2018 BBC miniseries Les Misérables.

In 2018, Doherty was a Screen International Star of Tomorrow, and an Evening Standard Rising Star.

In 2019, Doherty appeared as Princess Anne in the third season of The Crown. She knew little about the princess before being cast, and consequently spent hours studying Anne’s family history and life. Doherty made a point of only watching footage of the princess at the age she was portraying her, rather than interviews of Anne in later life. Anne’s voice is very different from Doherty’s, being much lower in pitch; the actress spent time carefully learning and mimicking it, finding that it “was the key into her psyche”. Doherty reprised her role as Princess Anne in the fourth season of the series.

In 2022, Doherty is the protagonist in the BBC/Amazon Prime drama Chloe alongside Poppy Gilbert as Becky. She was also cast to portray Anne Askew in the psychological horror film Firebrand in 2023.

In 2024, she played Clare a missing child returning to her parents aged 24 in the British psychological thriller film Reawakening, alongside Jared Harris and Juliet Stevenson.

Personal life

Doherty was in a relationship with fellow actress Sophie Melville.
