After graduating from LAMDA she landed a role in Brian Percival’s BBC One drama A Song For Jenny opposite Emily Watson. Other credits include The Headhunter (October Films), Oedipus (The Almeida), Downton Abbey (ITV), and Bad Master – Muriel’s sketch show which premiered at a sell out run at the Underbelly, Edinburgh Fringe and transferred to London’s Soho Theatre, where it sold out two consecutive runs with extra dates added.
Meg is also a filmmaker and winner of both the First Light Award (in association with BAFTA) and the Film Nation Award (in association with the Cultural Olympiad). She is currently writing her own TV drama series and working with Roughcut on a personal project. She also writes with Muriel on Laughing at Salad, the new sketch show for Comedy Central.
Muriel (made up of Janine Harouni, Meg Salter and Sally O’Leary) have created a number of viral sketches which have amassed millions of views and been featured in dozens of publications including Evening Standard, ITV News, Time Out, and Daily Mail among others. Their most recent viral videos were made in collaboration with BBC Three and remain some of BBC Three’s most viewed and engaged with sketches to date. They are winners of both the 2017 So You Think You’re Funny sketch competition and the 2017 Leicester Square Sketch-Off.
Meg trains in Improv with The Free Association.
If live sketch comedy is dying, Muriel has given it the kiss of life.
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
A tight and original hour of sketches, each one perfectly angled to its audience.
Telegenic and versatile, and with a striking stage presence, Muriel seem to have the potential to be the new Smack the Pony.
