Rhoda Ofori-Attah is not the first member of her family to enjoy the support of BAFTA Elevate. Her sister, Grace, a writer, took part in the programme last year. The experience was clearly positive enough to entice Rhoda to apply in 2019.
Born in Ghana but raised in the UK, Rhoda trained at the Oxford School of Drama. She made her small screen debut in 2005, appearing in Rose and Maloney (ITV) before landing roles in The Bill (ITV), Grownups (BBC Three) and Coronation Street (ITV). But it is within the last few years that Rhoda has really begun to show her chops. First, there was the character of Edith in two episodes of Last Tango in Halifax in 2016, and then came Stella in Silent Witness two-parter ‘Remembrance’ (both BBC) a year later. Roles in feature film Tulip Fever (2017) and television series Trust Me (BBC), Cold Feet (ITV), Doctors (BBC) and Holby City (BBC) soon followed. Within the last year, she has added Informer (BBC), Dark Heart (ITV) and Temple (Sky) to her credits.
Rhoda can currently be seen playing Miss Griffiths in the critically acclaimed new series of Top Boy (Netflix), and she recently wrapped on a film by Uberto Pasolina, Nowhere Special.
