London Met drama graduate in lead BBC drama role


Mary McCoy (a.k.a. Maimie McCoy) is an actress on the up and up: the London Metropolitan University graduate has been impressing critics in one of the main roles in the new BBC drama-comedy called Personal Affairs.

Mary’s character is called Nicole Palmerston-Amory, who is a fiery and complex character described as, “A man-eating, cynical realist, who favours money over love. Unable to trust men, she uses them for sex and to finance her lavish lifestyle, always remaining confident, controlling and fiercely independent.”

Busy Mary McCoy is also currently starring in the new BBC drama Desperate Romantics.

Mary graduated London Met University in 2001 with a BA (Hons) in Performing Arts. Principal Lecturer of Performing Arts and Theatre Studies, Gian Carlo Rossi said it was clear that Mary would do well from the outset. “Mary was a great student, she had talent and charisma and all staff who came into contact with her on the course found her rewarding to work with and a pleasure to teach. She was a diligent student throughout her study and all staff wish her the best in her career.”

The first series of Personal Affairs has just concluded BBC Three and Desperate Romantics is still running on BBC 2, Tuesday evenings at 9.00pm. In Desperate Romantics, Mary plays Margaret, a barmaid turned muse, who falls for Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s charms.
