Camilla Graves, a London-based Norwegian actress, is currently playing the powerful, colourful and mischievous Queen Isobel in the world premier of Ryan J-W Smith’s exciting tragicomedy 'The Power Play' which currently runs at Vanbrugh Theatre in the capital's West End.

Hot from a highly successful debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Ryan J-W Smith's latest verse comedy 'Love Labours Won' transfers directly to London’s West End. Produced by Smith's own Rogue Shakespeare Company, it will double-bill with the world premiere of Smith’s second verse play, the tragicomedy ‘The Power Play’, where Graves stars as Queen Isobel.
Camilla Graves trained at the Arts Educational London Schools, where she enjoyed roles such as Madame De Sade in ‘Madame De Sade’, Quince in ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’ and Kabanova in ‘The Storm’.

She started her acting career playing one of the leads in Anette Grønneberg's play ‘Mary & Mary’, which toured for two years. Since then she has gained a wide range of experience from stage and film work to presenting and voice over work. She recently played an HIV positive, energetic and neurotic fortune teller in the black comedy ‘The Days Lengthen by 1 Hour 31 Minutes’ at The Tristan Bates Theatre in the West End. Time Out wrote: "There are more claws bared here than in ‘Catwoman’. She also played in the new BBC comedy sketch show ‘Snuffbox’ earlier this year, the latest offering from ‘Extras’ producer Charlie Hanson and director Michael Cumming.
