Linda Marlowe worked with Steven Berkoff over a twenty-five year span as his leading lady in most of his plays, touring internationally and in London's West End. Her association with him gave rise to her first solo show, Berkoffs Women, directed by Josie Lawrence. She then followed it on with four more solo shows Diatribe of Love, No Fear!, Mortal Ladies Possessed and Believe.

She has toured these shows nationally and internationally and won The What's On Stage, Peoples Choice Theatre Award as Best Actress in her solo show Berkoff's Women, seen in the West End at the Ambassadors Theatre, London in 2001. In her many television and film appearances she has been lucky to work with actors such as Richard Burton, Peter OToole, Albert Finney and Gillian Anderson. Linda was last seen on television with James Nesbitt in the six-part series for BBC, Jekyll.
