Victoria Harwood began her career in burlesque at the age of eighteen, working in the world-famous Windmill Theatre and Raymond Revuebar in London UK as a Revuebar girl. After several years of wearing sequins and feathers and very little else she landed her first guest star role on TV as Bettina in Auf Wiedersehen Pet. This was followed by a string of television and film parts including Natalia in Reilly: Ace of Spies (starring Sam Neill), Sophy Kratides in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (with Jeremy Brett), Chantal in The Monocled Mutineer (with Paul McGann), Herself in Late (directed by Vinny Murphy),the lead (unnamed) in Journey of No Return (by Mitra Tabrizian) and Hermione in Sid and Nancy (starring Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb).
She then went to RADA and studied theatre and worked mainly on the stage after graduating, mostly playing mad, bad women such as Mrs. Rochester in Jane Eyre at the Playhouse Theatre, West End, Fig in A Cursed Place (which won the London Fringe Award for best ensemble), Mel in Ripped at The Soho Theatre Company (in which she played a female bodybuilder, trained by world champions Andrulla Blanchette and Ian Dowe to great acclaim) and The Woman in Sarah Kaneâ€TMs penultimate play Cleansed at The Royal Court.
Since getting married to commercials producer William Butler-Sloss (Kantara.TV) Victoria moved to Hollywood, retired from acting and concentrated on three things; her two young sons, her writing, having just completed a work of fictoir - a trilogy called Allegedly, A Tale of Fiction Involving my Family, and voice work. She continues to play mad, bad women vocally, such as Doc in Texchnolyze, Rubi the dominatrix in DearS and of course, her personal favorite, Lord Integra Wingates Hellsing in Hellsing.
