Biography

Clarke was born on 23 October 1986 in Westminster, London and grew up in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. Her father was a theatre sound engineer from Wolverhampton, West Midlands. She has an older brother. Her interest in acting was sparked at the age of three after seeing the musical Show Boat, on which her father was working. She was educated at Rye St Antony School, Headington, and at St Edward's School, Oxford, leaving in 2005. She attended Drama Centre London, and graduated in 2009.

She is of partial Indian descent as she stated in a 2018 interview that her maternal grandmother was born as the result of a secret affair between her great-grandmother and a man from the Indian subcontinent. Her grandmother wore light makeup to hide the dark complexion she had inherited from her father.
