Television and Film.
In 1998 Anna won the role of Suzanne Pryce in Jack of Hearts for the BBC, giving her international exposure.
The sizzling on screen chemistry between the two leads, the strength and diversity Anna displayed playing mother to Katie and lover to Jack was not lost on BBC executive Mal Young who quickly signed her up to a three year contract as a regular on his hit show Holby City.
Jack of Hearts was sold all over the world. Holby City runs for 50 episodes a season!
Following her second season on Holby City Anna was nominated in the best newcomer category at the National Television Awards.
