Regarding her academics, Cooper attended Powell’s Primary School and Cirencester Deer Park School.

Daisy May Cooper’s Career

Cooper then left all those things and returned back to her home with her brother. They shared a common bedroom in their parent’s house. At that time they became totally hopeless about their career. 

‘’ We felt that we’d been left behind. Having to come back to a village after going to drama school and university, and all of your peers have gone to London because they’ve done everything correctly.’’

Later, they started writing in the dark loft space above the garage. In 2014, she appeared in two episodes of the TV series, The Wrong Mans with Mathew Baynton, James Corden, and Sarah Solemani. She was unsuccessful to grab the attention of the audiences.

‘’ All the material is based around stuff that happens in Cirencester. But when we went to the channel they thought that Cirencester was a bit too big and Northleach is a smaller village, and sort of isolates the characters a bit more. Makes them more claustrophobic.’’

The mockumentary not just entertain the audiences but also shows ‘’that young people are marginalized more than ever.’’ Her strong character in the series was highly appreciated by numbers of audiences. She was even addressed as ‘’the best female character on TV.’’

After the success of the first series, the second series was aired from February 2018. The same year, she won a BAFTA Awards in a category of Best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme.
