Ambika Mod Biography – Ambika Mod Wiki

Ambika Mod is a British actress, comedian, and writer. She is best known for her roles as Shruti Acharya in the BBC drama series This Is Going to Hurt and Emma Morley in the Netflix miniseries One Day.

Born in the UK she attended Dame Alice Owen’s School. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Studies from St Mary’s College, Durham.

Early in her career, she worked as a personal assistant at Condé Nast as her day job while doing comedy at night. She studied at Theatrix Performing Arts of St Albans, based at the Abbey Theatre in the city. At Durham, she agreed and did sketch comedy through the university’s Revue, performing with Tom Harper at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and serving as the troupe’s president in 2017.

Mod also performs improvised comedy at The Free Association in London. She formed a duo, Megan from HR, with Andrew Shires.

Following a series of short films and supporting television roles, in 2022 Mod appeared as a struggling junior doctor in Adam Kay’s medical comedy-drama, This Is Going to Hurt, based on his memoir of the same name, alongside Ben Whishaw. Mod received the Broadcasting Press Guild Award for Best Actress.

In 2024, Mod played Emma Morley opposite Leo Woodall in Netflix’s One Day, based on David Nicholls‘ novel of the same name. It tells the story of two young people who meet annually for 20 years following a platonic one-night stand. Mod initially declined the part due to the intense nature of her role in This Is Going to Hurt and her doubts about playing a romantic lead. Reflecting on her decision, she said, “I think part of the reason why I just didn’t see myself playing that part was that insidiously and implicitly, that’s a message that I’ve been fed my entire life—that people who look like me aren’t romantic leads, that people who look like me aren’t the people who the male romantic lead will fall in love with”.

The series, along with her performance, received critical acclaim and the role was a breakthrough in her career. It was the most-watched series globally during the week of February 12, with 9.9 million views.

Mod has a lead role in the upcoming Disney+ thriller series Playdate.
