Fiona Mary Shaw, CBE (born Fiona Wilson; 10 July 1958) is an Irish actress and theatre and opera director, known for her role as Petunia Dursley in the Harry Potter films and her role as Marnie Stonebrook in season four of the HBO series True Blood (2011). She has worked extensively with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre, twice winning the Olivier Award for Best Actress; for various roles including Electra in 1990, and for Machinal in 1994. She won the 1997 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance for The Waste Land. Her other stage work includes playing the title role in Medea, both in the West End and on Broadway (2001–02). She was awarded an Honorary CBE in 2001.
Après avoir étudié à Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, elle entama une carrière d'actrice de théâtre en jouant dans des pièces telles que Comme il vous plaira (1984), Les Liaisons dangereuses (1985), La Mégère apprivoisée (1987) ou Oh les beaux jours (2007).
Elle interprète Marie, la mère de Jésus dans un monologue théâtral adapté du roman de Colm Tóibín, Le Testament de Marie, en 2013. La pièce est mise en scène par Deborah Warner, avec qui elle collabore plusieurs fois.
En 2015, elle met en scène The Rape of Lucretia de Benjamin Britten, joué au Festival de Glyndebourne. Pour le même festival en 2018, elle met en scène Cendrillon de Jules Massenet.
Fiona Shaw est une des actrices principales de Tels pères, telle fille en 1990 et elle avouera en 2017 que ce film l'a catégorisé comme une « actrice comique » et elle a craint un moment que les producteurs ne la prennent plus au sérieux.
Elle obtient ce qui deviendra son rôle le plus important et le plus connu en 2001, lorsqu'elle rejoint le casting de la saga Harry Potter dans le rôle de Petunia Dursley, la tante acariâtre d'Harry Potter. Elle avoue plus tard que, bien que son personnage lui ait plu, elle aurait adoré jouer un personnage avec des pouvoirs magiques comme le professeur Minerva McGonagall.
En 2018, elle obtient un des rôles principaux de la série Killing Eve aux côtés de Sandra Oh. La série est renouvelée pour une deuxième saison prévue pour 2019. La même année, elle joue Sido, la mère de Colette dans le film éponyme.
Elle sera également à l'affiche de la deuxième saison de la série britannique Fleabag en 2019.
