Peace came out as a lesbian to her mother when she was 19 years old, shortly after she broke up with her first girlfriend. Peace and longtime partner Ellie Dickinson entered into a civil partnership in 2013, and subsequently converted it to marriage in 2014. They have three daughters together: Annie Mary, born to Dickinson in April 2015, and twins Jessie and Lola, born to Peace in June 2017.

2012

She is best known for her hit roles as Nikki Boston in BBC1 long-running school-based drama Waterloo Road, from 2012 until 2014, Sally ‘Gracie’ Fields in ITV’s long-running series London’s Burning, Fiona Murray in Kay Mellor’s drama The Chase, and Sam Murray in BBC Scotland’s serial drama Lip Service.

She took another break from Waterloo Road at the end of series 9 Spring Term but has hinted that she may return in Series 11. However, it is unlikely she will return, due to the show’s tenth season being its last.

2010

In 2010, Peace was cast as Detective Sergeant Sam Murray in the BBC Three TV series Lip Service. Peace argued that being the only openly lesbian cast member influenced the attention she received regarding the show. The series, written by Harriet Braun, revolves around the loves and lives of group of aged-30-something lesbians in Glasgow, Scotland. The show reached cult status within the first few episodes, with Peace’s character Sam, and the actor herself, becoming also the object of cult (“Team Sam” movement among fans of the show). Filming of the second series finished in July 2011 with a transmission date of spring 2012. Since the end of the second and final season fans of the drama called for a third season to be made but Peace said in an interview with Cult Box where she said she would ‘definitely’ return as the character.

In 2010, she was number 40 on the Independent on Sunday’ s Pink List, and number 10 in 2011. She was also voted number 18 on US website afterellen.com’s 2011 Hot 100 list. She is also the only woman to have appeared twice on the cover of Diva Magazine in the space of six months.

2008

She then appeared in television series including Coronation Street, Heartbeat and Holby City. In 2008, Peace appeared as the secretly abusing wife in the “Private Sins” episode of Blue Murder.

2006

During 2006 and 2007, Peace starred in Kay Mellor’s TV series The Chase as single mum Fiona Jones. Quite a different character to the action girls often played by Peace, Fiona is portrayed as a left out family member whose resentment and betrayals lead into unexpected sinister behaviour.

2005

Peace played Special Air Service Trooper Becca Gallagher on the ITV action series Ultimate Force alongside Ross Kemp. Becca was part of the 3rd and 4th series, aired between 2005 and 2008. Peace has given credit to the writers for making Becca ‘one of the lads’, rather than an overly emotional character and said she had ‘so much fun’ playing the hero in the show. Ross Kemp has argued the show is made far more interesting by including a female role and believes Peace was the perfect choice for the part (“she is absolutely superb”).

2003

Between 2003 and 2005, Peace played minor roles in television series including Casualty and Where the Heart Is.

2000

In a 2000 episode of London’s Burning, Peace’s character sang a version of the Bette Midler classic The Rose. Subsequently, released by BMG, it reached no. 56 in the UK charts. She decided to put her music career on hold to concentrate on acting but in 2011 she reignited her love of music with her first sell out UK tour and release of an acoustic album of covers and some original songs.

1998

After leaving Emmerdale, Peace took parts in The Bill and Dangerfield, before being cast as Firefighter Sally “Gracie” Fields in the ITV series London’s Burning from 1998 until the programme’s cancellation in 2002. During this time, Peace made a TV movie called Thunder Road, in which she played Sonia.

1997

Peace’s break into television came when she joined Emmerdale, playing the character Anne Cullen for six episodes between January and June 1997.
