Shaffer made her acting debut in the film “Harry Potter” as Romilda Vane. Anna played the Gryffindor student who tried unsuccessfully to woo Harry Potter, even using the love potion, which was eventually taken by Ron Weasley by accident in the sixth installment of the series, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” (2009).
Anna later featured in the last installments of the series, portraying Romilda in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” (Part 1 in 2010 and Part 2 in 2011).
She was cast in the part of Ruby Button, the sister of Duncan Button, who was played by Dean Aspen, in the popular serial opera “Hollyoaks,” which aired on British Channel 4 in December 2010.
It’s worth noting that Anna was initially considered for the role of Leanne Holiday, but Jessica Forrest was cast instead: ‘I believe I was reading for the role of Leanne Holiday when I initially auditioned.’ Because they were shooting it and there were five people in the room, it was nerve-wracking.
She described her feelings at the tryouts, “I simply remember being incredibly apprehensive, and really frightened that the script might start trembling as I was holding it.”
Anna had to travel to Liverpool in order to be filmed for the series, and the first episode featuring her premiered on January 3, 2011.
Ruby’s character was announced to be leaving the show in February 2014, but Anna appeared in two more episodes in November 2017 and April 2018, as the script needed.
The plot twists surrounding Ruby bore the critics, thus their unfavorable reviews prompted the series’ producers to focus on other characters.
Anna has also appeared in shows such as “Cuckoo” (2012 – present), “Finding Jesus: Faith. Fact. Forgery” (2015 – present), in which she played Mary Magdalene, and “Zapped” (2016 – 2018), in addition to “The Witcher” and “Hollyoaks.”
She’s also appeared in the music videos “YDEK (You Don’t Even Know)” by the Warehouse Republic, as well as minor appearances in “Class” (2016–present), “Fearless” (2017), and “Vengeance” (2018).
Anna is now appearing in “Daisy Pulls It Off” at the Park Lane Theatre in London, where she plays Daisy. She was once on the cover of the “Knitting” magazine as a model. Anna also promotes the “Figleaves” lingerie line for women with plus-size figures.
