Miranda Raison

Miranda Caroline Raison is an English screen and stage actress. In 2005, she landed a role in Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, which she described as that it "may as well have been the most brutal Lars von Trier film.Raison's breakthrough role was as Jo Portman (2005–2009) in the BBC One television drama series Spooks (also broadcast under the title MI-5). She requested that the production company let her go in 2009 as she felt that her character could not develop further and wanted to follow up on theatre opportunities.
In April 2007 she appeared in the Doctor Who episodes "Daleks in Manhattan" and "Evolution of the Daleks" as Tallulah, a show girl whose opening scene involved singing to a musical number, for which Raison's father played the piano background as part of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. She continues to be connected to the Doctor Who franchise by being in several Big Finish Productionsaudio stories, most notably playing Sixth Doctor companion Constance Clarke.
In 2008 and 2009, she appeared in short films produced by Exit Strategy Films. In 2009, she was featured in the show Plus One. She was originally featured in the Comedy Showcase pilot in 2007, where she wore a fat suit.
She was also involved in the film Heaven and Earth, an intended biopic of Dr. James Miranda Barry, in which Raison played the role of Helena Langrish Smith. However, the project was pulled after filming had started in South Africa.
In 2010 after leaving Spooks, she played a model called Abbey in the ITV1 comedy-drama Married Single Other.
She had a small role in My Week with Marilyn. She expressed pleasure in being able to work with great British talent and her fascination with Marilyn Monroe.
In July 2014 she was announced as a new cast member of Spotless, a (10 × 1 hour episode) drama produced by Canal+.
On 15 April 2015 it was announced that a second series of Spotless was in development.
In 2018, Raison reprised her role as ‘Sylvie' in 6 episodes of Dark Heart, played xenobiologist ‘Tessia' in 6 episodes of Nightflyers and appeared in Artemis Fowl.
