Hannah Waddingham has had a successful career in the London theatre, including her portrayal of Suzanne Valadon in Lautrec.
However, it is for her portrayal of the Lady of the Lake in Spamalot (a role she originated in London) and continued on Broadway, for which she is best known, and for which she received an Olivier Award nomination for her efforts. She received outstanding reviews for her portrayal of Desirée Armfeldt in Trevor Nunn's acclaimed revival of A Little Night Music, including being described by one critic as the "Joanna Lumley of musical theatre". Waddingham subsequently received a further Olivier Award nomination in 2010 for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance in Night Music.
In the summer of 2010, Waddingham played the Witch in the critically acclaimed production of Into the Woods at London's Open Air Theatre.
She originated the role of The Wicked Witch of the West in the West End production of The Wizard of Oz, which opened on 1 March 2011 at the London Palladium. She left the production on 4 September 2011 and was replaced by her understudy, Marianne Benedict. Hannah won the WhatsOnStage Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her performance.
In 2012, she starred in Chichester Festival Theatre's 2012 revival of Kiss Me, Kate. The show transferred to the Old Vic Theatre on London's South Bank in November 2012.
On television, Hannah can be seen as Septa Unella in HBO's Game of Thrones on Sky Atlantic
