Esme Bianco was born in Peterborough in the United Kingdom in 1977. She has been studying acting since she was a young girl. She made her stage debut in an amateur drama in the United Kingdom, appearing in “Rebecca” as a teenage girl before going onto Broadway in her breakout role as a leading lady in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
Esme has also studied acting and worked as a radio producer, but her major break came when she became a member of the very popular British girls’ rock band, Smurfette. The band went on to sell over five million copies of their self titled album in the United Kingdom alone. Shortly after the band split up, Esme moved on to become one of the best known and most in demand female performers in the UK and internationally. In fact, Esme Bianco became one of the first British women to headline a U.S. stage show, performing alongside singers such as Macy Gray and Ashanti.

Esmé Bianco Facts
- She was born on May 25, 1982 in St Albans, Hertfordshire, England, UK.
- Her full name is Esmé Augusta Bianco.
- She began her acting career appearing in music videos for the likes of Robbie Williams and Slayer.
- She portrayed Ros in the HBO series Game of Thrones from 2011 to 2013.
With Smurfette, though, she was unable to secure herself a regular spot on stage, but she did manage to make appearances on a few daytime television programs. After several years of building a name for herself in Hollywood, Esme finally managed to land a role on the popular soap opera, The Apprentice. She later went on to star in the movie adaptation of the show, Napoleon Dynamite alongside Jason Orange, where she again went on to play a vital supporting role in the show’s main plot. For several years, no other male performer had ever been cast as the female version of the headstrong aristocratic general, hence the reason that Esme Bianco became known worldwide as the first ever British Esme. She has since appeared in a number of movies and has continued to receive critical acclaim for her work both in film and television.
If any British woman can claim to have made history, it is probably Esme Bianco. She has definitely earned her stripes in the acting business, and is well worth the investment in order to see a great performance in either theatre or movies. However, if you are looking for an example of how someone can rise from the muck and mire to fame and glory by playing a pivotal role in a popular television programme, then Esme Bianco may just be your ticket. As with any successful British female actor (or male), there are some factors that all actresses must have: good looks, an original sense of humor, and an authentic understanding of the role she is playing.
Esme Bianco certainly has all of those qualities, and it is easy to see why she has carved out a name for herself as a formidable British female actor and actresses. She has appeared in some high-end films such as the BBC’s The Young Victoria, which featured Matt Smith’s character, Ben Kingsley, and she also had a role in the Harry Potter movie franchise. However, it was her appearance on stage in the West End play Hairspray, as a lingerie model, that really catapulted her to stardom. She then spent several years playing characters in both the television show and the film industry, and finally ended up playing the lead role in the hugely popular Bridget Jones Diary.
The fact that Esme Bianco somehow managed to stay alive and stable while playing such iconic roles is largely due to one single factor: talent. She is an incredibly talented actress who manages to keep her viewers hooked through the many layers of her performance. For anyone who has ever seen one of her movies, or even one of her TV performances, it is impossible not to be swept off of your feet by the sheer genius of the actress. Her lovable character, Esme Blouiler, is based on a real life young girl from East Anglia who simply wanted a normal life that did not include being kept at the bottom of the food chain. Esme has played several different roles since then, most notably in the television series House of Lies, but her performance as the dead man running for prime is perhaps her finest. It is impossible to look at any Esme Bianco film and not feel that she is one of the most talented actors working in modern television today.
