Born into a military family, and with a direct connection to Sir Henry Irving (she is his great, great, great Granddaughter), Imogen grew up mostly around Hampshire and its army camps but always within touching distance of  Salisbury Playhouse where she was a member of their youth theatre.  With a military father and brother, she learnt orientation, camping, fishing, horse-riding, combat and survival skills from an early age (all useful tools for the actress). This, however, did not stop her (or the brother) from putting on ballet shoes, making theatre and performing from a young age.  It did though help beat all the boys to the part of Scrooge in her first nativity play.  Graduating this year from The Oxford School of Drama, she played Desdemona in Othello, Vera in A Month in the Country, Elan in a new-writing piece at Soho Theatre and was most recently selected for the finals in the Spotlight Prize 2017.  Life was never the same for Imogen after putting on a red nose at drama school and she can be regularly seen Clowning and enjoying comedy in her spare time. She is also an honorary member of the Irving Society.
