Franc Ashman plays Molly in the final series of Peep Show, starting tonight at 10pm on Channel 4.

Peep Show follows the lives of Mark Corrigan (Mitchell) and Jeremy “Jez” Usbourne (Webb), two dysfunctional friends who share a flat in Croydon, South London. Mark is a socially awkward and uptight loan manager with a cynical outlook on life, while Jeremy is a self-interested slacker and unemployed would-be musician who lives in Mark’s spare room.

In September 2013, Channel 4 announced that the show’s ninth series would be its last. Series 9 was filmed throughout August and September 2015 and will premiere on 11 November 2015.


Franc Ashman stars as Hermione Granger in the West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

She boasts an impressive list of other theatre credits, having performed extensively for the Royal Shakespeare Company and acclaimed theatre company Out of Joint under the direction of Max Stafford-Clark. She has also worked for the National Theatre, recently playing Lorraine in the well-received production of Nine Night.

Screen credits include The Child in Time for the BBC, Apple Tree Yard for Kudos, Sick of it for Sky1 and for film, The Ones Below for Cuba Pictures and A Streetcat Named Bob.

Franc wrote and performed the soundtrack for Gary Oldman’s feature film Nil By Mouth, including the title song ‘Pandora’.
