Juliet May is an award-winning director who’s enjoyed a long (and hilarious) career in classic British television comedy. Over the years she has directed the first three series of Miranda, three series of Call the Midwife, and most recently the critically acclaimed first series of Motherland for BBC2. Juliet also won an Emmy for her feature-length TV drama, Dustbin Baby for BBC1 and a Royal Television Society Award and BAFTA for the children’s comedy series, Microsoap.
Since signing for commercial representation in 2017, Juliet has directed a series of charming spots for Aldi’s Easter campaign, as well as the poignant ‘signing’ spot for Deaf Awareness Week featuring Oscar winning young actress, Maisie Sly. She has also directed a number of amusing, action-packed idents for ITV Movies sponsors, Just Eat.
Due to her extensive background in television, Juliet is incredibly efficient with time, totally professional and a delight to work alongside. She has natural, infectious funny bones and always charms the celebs and talent she works with whether that be Simon Bird, Diane Morgan, Anna-Maxwell Martin or James Nesbitt.
Her recent work for British Airways Holidays highlights Juliet’s ability to nail typically British dialogue and awkward interactions. Her creative mind and endless abundance of ideas really knows no bounds.
