Lydia Fox (born 1979) is an English film, television, and stage actress and producer. She is also known by her married name, Lydia Ayoade.

Background and early life

The only daughter of James Fox and Mary Elizabeth Piper, she has four brothers, including the actors Laurence and Jack Fox.[1] Her father's parents were the theatrical agent Robin Fox and the actress Angela Worthington, for whom Noël Coward wrote the song "Don't Put Your Daughter on the Stage, Mrs Worthington". Fox and Worthington did not have any daughters; their two granddaughters, Lydia and Emilia Fox, are both actresses.[2]

Fox studied at Newnham College, Cambridge. While there, in 2001 she played Juliet in a Marlowe Society production of Romeo and Juliet, opposite Tom Hiddleston, to be reviewed as "a slightly nonchalant Juliet".[3]
