Including where you recognise her from

Tuppence Middleton

by Rebecca Cope |

The British actress is back on our screens starring in new edge-of-your-seat thriller Our House, alongside Line of Duty's Martin Compston and Rupert Penry-Jones. Based on the novel by Louise Candlish, Our House tells the story of Fi Lawson (Middleton), who arrives home one day to discover her house has been sold and a new couple is moving in. She insists a mistake has been made as she scrambles to find out where her estranged husband Bram (Compston) is. Tuppence is also featuring in the Downton Abbey movie sequel.

If Tuppence looks familiar, it's because the 35-year-old actress has been on our screens for some time now, appearing in the BBC's adaptation of War & Peace, and more recently in The Current War with Benedict Cumberbatch and the Downton Abbey movie. Here's everything you need to know about the actress...

First things first, are Kate Middleton and Tuppence Middleton related?

Where does her unusual name come from?

'Tuppence was what my grandmother nicknamed my mother, so she gave it to me,' the actress revealed in a previous interview. She’s not the only member of her family with a strange moniker, though. 'My sister is called Angel, and my brother was going to be called Bubba or Sonny, until they let me and my sister name him Josh.' Lucky escape, Josh!
