After graduating from high school, Poppy Drayton made her debut in 2012 with the short movie Emily. One year later, she landed a significant role in the TV series When Calls the Heart.
Her next job came around the same time with a special episode of the TV series Downton Abbey (2013). From there on, her popularity kept on skyrocketing.
In 2014, she had the chance to land a major role in the TV series The Shannara Chronicles. That very year, she was getting cast in the TV series Father Brown and Midsomer Murders.
2015 was also a decent year for Poppy as she proceeded to star in two movies all at once, namely Writers Retreat and Unhallowed Ground.
Besides being an on-screen actress, she also busied herself with a side job as a voice actress. In 2017, she narrated one of the characters in the videogame Dark Souls III.
