Edith was born in Vienna, Austria. She travelled extensively with her family and grew up in a number of countries including Norway, New Zealand and the US before finally reaching the UK. She received an MA (Hons) in English Literature from the University of Cambridge where she starred in numerous critically acclaimed theatre productions, including a summer rep tour of “Electra” and “Blood Wedding,” playing amphitheatres across Greece. After finishing her academic studies, Edith went on to train in the Meisner technique for three years under the tutelage of Tom Radcliffe at the Actors Temple in London.
From traditional Shakespearean roles such as Ophelia in HAMLET (Cambridge Playroom) and Helena in A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (Arts Theatre) to more contemporary stage performances as Sooze in SUBURBIA (ADC) and Lucie in POLYGRAPH (Soho Theatre) Edith has played a breadth of varying roles. She continues to collaborate and contribute to a professional stage actors' troupe at the Richmond Bridge Theatre.
Edith’s first leading screen role was in the powerful Greek-Cypriot film SECRET PATHS, opposite Alex Edwards and Spyros Stavrinidis. She quickly made a name for herself creating naturalistic and honest screen performances and has gone on to work with BAFTA and FIPRESCI award-winning film directors such as Vadim Jean and Julian Kemp. Stand out roles include Natalie in the romantic comedy MY LAST FIVE GIRLFRIENDS alongside Naomie Harris, and Camilla in the psychological thriller FOSSIL, opposite John Sackville and Carla Juri.
Edith makes time for personal projects and has two feature films and a documentary web-series in development. Alongside acting she continues to pursue her artistic passion as a painter and has been exhibited in several galleries including Rivington Place and the converted Aldwych tube station in London.
