She’s been credited in over 40 acting projects, and has even done a few radio plays. Her work has led to award nominations, while she’s also taught acting classes.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Sally grew up having a strong desire towards performing, and aspired to become a professional actress. She took up her acting training at the Central School of Speech and Drama, a school which has been running since 1906 to train young actors. The school has been a constituent of the University of London since 2005.
Around this time, she got her first professional acting projects and registered under the name Sally Bretton, as Sally Davis was already registered with the actors’ union Equity.
Her first project was appearances in two episodes of “Napoleon & Josephine” which aired in 1987. Three years later, she worked on the British anthology series “Screen One”, which aired on the BBC, but then took a decade-long break from acting to complete her studies, before making any further evaluations about her career goals.
She completed her acting training, and then worked as a drama teacher for the Top Hat Stage and Screen School. It was around this time that she wanted to return to acting in front of the camera once more.
Television Career and Theatrical Projects
In 2000 Bretton returned to the screen, appearing in an episode of “Sunburn”, which led to a string of appearances the following year, including in “Beast”, “Armstrong and Miller”, “Doctors” and “Dr. Terrible’s House of Horrible”, the latter an anthology series focused on horror and comedy.
She appeared in the episode “Lesbian Vampire Lovers of Lust”. She continued her work, appearing in the pilot of “Blue Murder”, and in a minor role in “Wild West”.
In 2004, she began playing the role of Kim Alabaster in the sitcom “Green Wing”, which is set in a fictional hospital. Despite looking like a medical drama, there are no actual medical storylines involved, with most of the story revolving around the personal lives of the characters.
She stayed with the show until the end of its run two years later, then became involved in projects including “Wild West”, “The Bill” and “Casualty”. She also did stage work when she had the time – some of her earliest works include “Hay Fever” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” In 2006, she joined the 15-performance run of “In Extremis: The Story of Abelard & Heloise”.
Films, Not Going Out, and Death in Paradise
Sally mainly did television movies when it came to films.
A few of her most notable projects came in 2007, when she starred in the short film “A Fitting Tribute” playing the character Tammy. She also had a minor role in “Outlaw”, which starred Sean Bean and Danny Dyer, and follows the story of a soldier who returns home to find that Britain has become a center of crime.
During the same year, she was cast in her most notable television role in “Not Going Out”, as Lucy Adams, which airs on BBC One.
The show focuses on the life of the character Lee, who is generally a man without ambition, except when he wants to make an effort to impress the woman he likes. The show has progressed over the years, and Sally was introduced in the second series, replacing Megan Dodds. Her character has since married Lee’s character, and the show continues to tell a story about the family of the characters. While working on the show, she had a drastically different role in the series “Death in Paradise” during its 2015 to 2017 run; it’s a detective show, and is one of the most popular programs in the UK.
She’s recently defended her show “Not Going Out” from numerous criticisms regarding how the show suddenly fast-forwarded in time. Many critics state that the current set-up of the couple being married defeats the entire story the show was created for.
Bretton married a photographer named Lee, and they have three children together. The family resides near Hitchin, Hertfordshire, settling there in 2015. She is a very private person, refusing to disclose any information about her family, even helping to manage her time when it comes to taking care of her family, by hiring her own body double to work for her in segments of her shows.
