Florence Pugh is a British actress. She is known for her roles in the films The Falling (2014), Lady Macbeth, The Commuter, Outlaw King, Malevolent (2018), Fighting with My Family, Midsommar, Little Women (2019), Black Widow (2021), Don’t Worry Darling, The Wonder (2022), Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, in voice performance; A Good Person, and Oppenheimer, and on television’s Marcella, King Lear, The Little Drummer Girl (2018) and Hawkeye.

She is a sister of actor and musician Toby Sebastian (né Pugh) and half-sister of actress Arabella Gibbins. Her mother, Deborah, is a dancer and dance teacher, and her father, Clinton Pugh, is a restaurateur and runs The Grand Cafe, Kazbar and the Cafe Coco chain in Oxford. The family lived in Manilva, Spain, for a few years during her childhood.

Florence’s paternal grandfather’s surname was Pugh.

Florence’s paternal grandmother’s surname was Brennan.

Florence’s maternal grandfather is George Mackin (the son of George William Mackin and Violet Louisa/Louise Silver). Florence’s grandfather George was born in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, England. Florence’s great-grandfather George was the son of George Mackin, who was born in Queenstown, Cork, Ireland, and of Betsy Ann Fanthorpe. Violet was the daughter of Robert John Silver and Elizabeth Lydia Patrick.

Florence’s maternal grandmother is named Patricia Hopps.

American actor Zachary Levi was born Zachary Levi Pugh. He uses his middle name as his stage name, as he believed “Pugh” was too unusual-sounding. A decade after he became a known actor, Florence and her brother Toby Sebastian also became well-known; Florence kept the surname, while Toby, like Zachary, uses his first two names (though in reverse order). The siblings are not related to Zachary in any discernible way.
