Vicky Lee McClure (born 8 May 1983) is an English actress best known for her roles in the films of director Shane Meadows where she played the title character's sister Ladine in A Room for Romeo Brass (1999), and featured in Meadows's successful project and spin offs, This Is England (2006), This is England '86 (2010), This Is England '88 (2011) and This Is England '90 (2015). On television she is known for her work as Detective Sergeant Kate Fleming in the BBC series Line of Duty and Karen White in ITV's Broadchurch. Her other film roles include Filth and Wisdom (2008), Hummingbird (2013), and Svengali (2013) as well as co-starring in BBC's The Replacement (2017).

McClure won the RTS Award and BAFTA Television Award for Best Actress for This is England '86 in 2011.

Early life

McClure was born in Wollaton, Nottingham, and educated at the Fernwood Comprehensive School. She also attended the Central Junior Television Workshop where she was spotted by fellow Nottingham-born actress Samantha Morton who helped launch her career.


McClure has worked on the This is England films for a period of over 9 years, portraying the role of Frances Lorraine "Lol" Jenkins. In an April 2007 interview with Time Out, McClure spoke of Meadows approaching her for the role while she was in a pub with Andrew Shim. She described the making of the film, which was highly improvised, as "constant laughing and jokes". In 2011, her performance as Frances Lorraine "Lol" Jenkins in This is England '86 won her the British Academy Television Award for Best Actress and the Royal Television Society Award for Best Actress.

McClure co-starred in the London-based comedy film Filth and Wisdom, the first feature film directed by pop singer Madonna. She admitted to being slightly star-struck upon first meeting Madonna, "I tried to act as cool as possible but inside I'm like, "Oh my God; there's Madonna!" You can't help it". The film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival on 13 February 2008.

She also joined the cast of the British police procedural television series, Line of Duty in 2012 as DC Kate Fleming, continuing in the role in Series 2 (2014), Series 3 (2016) and Series 4 (2017). In 2013, she appeared in the British action-thriller film Hummingbird opposite Jason Statham.

In July 2016, she appeared as Winnie Verloc in The Secret Agent, based on the eponymous novel by Joseph Conrad.

She starred in the BBC TV thriller The Replacement in 2017.

Vicky did voiceover work for the More4 show "A year on the farm" in August 2017.

Video and other work

She was also featured alongside Kaya Scodelario, Abbey Butler, Andy Crane and Paul Young in Plan B's music video "She Said". In 2010, McClure appeared in a number of promotional short films for the English cosmetics brand Illamasqua. In 2012, McClure appeared in the video for Jake Bugg's song "Two Fingers" along with Line of Duty co-star Craig Parkinson. On 18 March 2014, McClure appeared on BBC Radio 1's Innuendo Bingo.

Nottingham Tram

McClure lives in Nottingham with director Jonny Owen.
