Adjoa Andoh is a British-Ghanian film, television, stage and radio actress. Her career began at the British Broadcast Corporation’s Radio Drama Company where she played several characters. This is before she began working in front of the camera on films and television series as well as on stage at the National Theatre and the Royal Court Theatre. She has starred in popular British television series like EastEnders and international films like Clint Eastwood's Invictus where she played Nelson Mandela's Chief of Staff Brenda Mazibuko.

However, Andoh's most recent role, on the acclaimed period series Bridgerton, as Lady Danbury is gearing up to be her most memorable across the world. Known for her razor-sharp tongue, Lady Danbury is an insightful doyenne of London society and mentor to one of London's most eligible bachelors, the Duke of Hastings, Simon Bassett. Summarising the role, Harper's Bazaar described the character as a "tribute to no-nonsense moms and aunties everywhere".
