Chloe Godard in Holby City: How did Amy Lennox become famous?

The 33-year-old actress first hit the headlines when she appeared in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Sound Of Music musical in London in 2007.

In 2009 Amy was then understudy to Sheridan Smith in another West End musical, Legally Blonde, in 2009.

She then followed it up with a role in the touring production of 9 To 5.

And yet, Amy did not come from an acting family.

She showed promise as a youngster when she sang in nursery.

In an interview with The Express, she said: “Apparently my parents said I had perfect pitch and they cried when I sang.

“And because they went on and on about it, of course I decided, ‘Right, I’m not singing!’ Then I got to the age of 11 and I was watching a documentary about stage-school girls auditioning for Annie and it was like I got smacked in the face with envy.

“I thought, ‘I have to do that.’”

She landed the role of Chloe after appearing in Casualty, and then a recurring role as the specialist registrar in cardiothoracic surgery in Holby.

Chloe in Holby City: Is actress Amy related to Annie Lennox?

We’re sorry to say that Amy is not related to 66-year-old Annie.

However, some fans automatically assume that Amy is part of Annie’s family.

In the same interview, she said: “At a stage door a few years ago, a woman just assumed I was Annie Lennox’s daughter.

“‘I think I know your nanny!’ she said.

“I can understand the confusion because we’re both from Aberdeen, but we are definitely not related and I’ve never met her.”

Is Amy Scottish?

Amy was indeed born in Scotland, in Aberdeen more specifically.

And this would tally because she has a lovely, lilting Scottish accent in the show.

Of course, don’t forget that Chloe is the daughter of Ange Godard – played by Scottish actress Dawn Steele.

Is Amy married and does she have children?

Amy is currently in a relationship with fellow actor Tom Hargeaves.

Last year, she took to Instagram to show the pair in wedding attire (at least some of it was wedding attire).

She explained that the pair had postponed their wedding to this year.
