Sheila Atim Biography

Sheila Atim MBE has garnered a host of accolades and awards that belie the fact she’s a relative newcomer to the industry.

This year sees Sheila take on the role of ‘Mabel’ in Barry Jenkins’ The Underground Railroad on Amazon Prime, star alongside Halle Berry in Berry’s directorial debut, Bruised, and as a guest lead in Netflix’s new British crime drama series The Irregulars. Sheila plays series regular ‘Limehouse Nell’ in Hulu’s Harlots. Other TV credits include The Pale Horse, The Feed and Bounty Hunters.

In 2018, Sheila won the Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical, for her performance as ‘Marianne Laine’ in Girl From The North Country at the Old Vic Theatre. She received rave reviews as ‘Emilia’, acting alongside Mark Rylance and Andre Holland in Othello at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London and has performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company, at the Donmar Warehouse and the National Theatre.

As well as her Olivier Award, Sheila has won the Critics' Circle Award, The Clarence Derwent Award and was nominated at the Evening Standard Awards. Sheila’s debut play, Anguis, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019. That same year, Sheila composed the music for Time is Love, Che Walker’s production at the Finborough Theatre.
