Harriet Walter stars in "Downton Abbey" on PBS as Lady Shackleton.

Since training at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Harriet Walter has worked extensively in theater, television, film and radio. Most recently she was Livia in "Women Beware Women" at the Olivier NT. She is an associate artist with the Royal Shakespeare Company, where she played Cleopatra in "Antony and Cleopatra," alongside Patrick Stewart, Beatrice in "Much Ado About Nothing," and Lady Macbeth in "Macbeth," opposite Anthony Sher. Walter was also seen in "The Duchess of Malfi," "All's Well That Ends Well" with Peggy Ashcroft, "Twelfth Night" and "Three Sisters," winning an Olivier award for the last two. Harriet played Elizabeth Ist in "Mary Stuart" (Donmar, West End), for which she won the Evening Standard Award and was nominated for a Tony Award for the Broadway transfer. Earlier theatrical credits include "Dinner," "The Children's Hour" and "Arcadia," all at the NT, and "Three Birds Alighting on a Field," "Cloud Nine," "Hamlet" and "The Seagull," all at the Royal Court.

On British television, Walter is perhaps best known for playing Natalie Chandler in "Law & Order: UK" from 2009 to 2011. Other credits include "Midsomer Murders," "Hunter," "Little Dorrit," "Five Days," "Doctors," "MI-5," "Walking the Dead," "Unfinished Business," "Hard Times," "The Men's Room," "A Dorothy L. Sayers Mystery" and "The Price."

Film credits include "The Young Victoria" as Queen Adelaide, "Atonement," "Bright Young Things," "Sense and Sensibility" and Louis Malle's "Milou et Mai."

She has published three books: "Other People's Shoes," "Macbeth" for the Faber series "Actors on Shakespeare," and "Facing It."

She was appointed a CBE in 2000 and DBE in the Honours List 2011.
