Early Life

Colman, the daughter of surveyor Keith Colman and nurse Mary (née Leakey) Colman, was born in Norwich, Norfolk, England. Her parents remodelled homes, thus the family moved around a lot. Colman was interested in acting when he was a student at Gresham’s School in Holt, Norfolk.

In the school’s performance of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, she played the leading role. Despite her aspirations to become an actor, Colman first chose to focus on other professional paths. She attended Cambridge’s Homerton College to study teaching after earning her degree from Gresham’s School in 1992.

But during this period, Colman became a member of the University of Cambridge-affiliated amateur theatrical group Footlights. She decided to study acting at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School after having this experience; among its graduates are Jeremy Irons, Patrick Stewart, and Daniel Day-Lewis. 1999 saw her graduate. After meeting Ed Sinclair at Footlights, she married him two years later. The couple raises three kids.

Olivia Colman & Palestine

In a letter addressed to the arts and culture sector, over 1,300 performers and artists—among them, the Academy Award–winning British actress Olivia Colman—accused Western cultural institutions of “repressing, suppressing and stigmatising Palestinian voices and viewpoints.”

Personal Life

Ed Sinclair was a third-year law student who had lost faith in the legal system and would much rather write. Colman met Sinclair when he was acting in a Footlights production associated with Sir Alan Ayckbourn’s Table Manners in the late 1990s.

Colman and Sinclair wed in August 2001; together, they are parents to three kids. In South London’s Herne Hill, they reside. Colman has served as a Norwich Film Festival judge since 2013. She was one of 200 prominent people who opposed Scottish independence in a letter to The Guardian in August 2014, just before the referendum on the subject was held in September.

Colman called herself a “leftie monarchist” after being a lifelong Republican in a November 2019 Sunday Times interview on her role as Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown. In November 2020, she endorsed violence and prejudice against trans women by signing an open letter.

Colman signed a statement in November 2023 denouncing Western cultural institutions for “repressing, silencing, and stigmatising Palestinian voices and perspectives” and urging an end to hostilities between Israel and Hamas.


The introduction to acting for Olivia Colman was facilitated by early career acquaintances with the English comic duo David Mitchell and Thomas Webb, leading to her numerous roles in Olivia Colman movies and TV shows.

The two, who went by the names Mitchell and Webb, would go on to appear in three British TV sketch comedy series. It was in their first programme, The Mitchell and Webb Situation, that Colman first gained recognition as a comic actress. She also appeared on Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb Look, their later programmes.

Among Olivia Colman movies, notable ones include “Hyde Park on the Hudson” (2012) and “The Iron Lady” (2011), where she played significant roles. In her Olivia Colman role in The Crown, she portrayed Queen Elizabeth II, showcasing her range as an actress.

In her acceptance speech after her 2012 BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award victory for Iron Lady, Streep referred to Colman as “divinely gifted.”

Why Do People Hate Olivia Colman?

Annoying Character

Olivia Colman often portrays characters who are comparatively unlikeable or evil, as shown in her parts in Fleabag and The Favourite. Sometimes, her characters come out as egotistical, aggressively passive, or even nasty.

Although critics applaud her depictions for their nuance, some viewers find her characters irritating, aggravating, and difficult to relate to. Some viewers may find it offensive since she chose to portray the characters’ imperfections and ugly aspects in her performance.

Outspokenly Feminist

Olivia Colman nude is a self-described feminist who has spoken out against sexism and gender injustice, using her position to further feminist causes. She collaborated with Time’s Up, for example, to promote equality in society and put a stop to harassment.

Anti-feminist organisations criticise her for her outspoken feminism and progressive political beliefs, seeing her as too extreme, didactic, or “woke.” They charge her and other vocal actors with advancing a socialist agenda.

Support of Liberal Causes

Olivia Colman is outspoken in her advocacy of liberal and progressive issues, including as immigration, anti-Brexit, LGBTQ+ rights, and anti-Trump. Her views extend beyond feminism. She strongly disagrees with conservative ideas. Once again, her unwavering political views offend some people and make her a target of hate, particularly from right-wing internet forums.

Low Mainstream Visibility Outside UK/Europe

Olivia Colman has received praise from critics and accolades, but her public presence is often modest, particularly in the US. She mainly appears in independent films and British TV series that aren’t very popular elsewhere. Particularly among mainstream American viewers, her outside of The Crown work is less well-known. Her popularity is lower among the general public as a consequence of her absence from Hollywood blockbusters.
