She is best know for her television work, most recently playing the lead in BBC3 comedy ‘Limbo’ as pink-haired hedonist ‘Neck’. Other credits include Electric Dreams (channel 4) Episodes (BBC/ Showtime), Top Coppers (BBC), Some Girls (BBC), Edge of Heaven (ITV), The Smoke (Sky 1), Medics (Comedy Central), Quacks (BBC), the Wrong Mans series 1&2 (BBC), Switch (ITV), Loaded (channel 4), Not Going Out (BBC), Richard Hammond’s Secret Service (BBC) Heading Out (BBC), Protest (BBC), My First Planet (BBC), Love Me (BBC), Lovesick (Netflix) series 2&3 and she has just completed filming a lead role in tv mini-series ‘Thanks for the Memories’ which will air in America early next year.

    She featured in Oscar winning short film ‘The Phonecall’ alongside Jim Broadbent and Sally Hawkins, and earlier this year was nominated for ‘best supporting actress’ at the BIFF awards for her role as ‘Jenny’ in comedy feature film ‘The Great Unwashed’.

    In 2011 she was the runner-up at national stand-up competition ‘Funny Women’, and having been a columnist for both FHM and More magazine, in 2014 she turned her hand to script writing. She is currently penning her third sitcom script alongside Hattrick Productions (Father Ted) following her third commission from the BBC. She is also currently writing a series for Netflix and has another script in development at channel 4. ‘Sticky’ a comedy series she wrote alongside Ed Tracy (Phonejacker) is about to air on BBC3 and stars Tom Hardy.

    Bekka trained at The London Studio Centre and upon graduation was awarded the ‘Merrifield Award’ for acting and the ‘Sheila O’Neil Trophy’ for ‘the triple threat student with the most potential to succeed’. She is the only person ever to have won both awards.
