She made her acting debut as Mandy Milkovich in the second season of the Showtime comedy-drama Shameless (2012–2016), appearing as a series regular in the third and fourth seasons. Greenwell also appeared as a series regular on the Hulu drama The Path (2016–2018) and headlined the Starz miniseries The Rook in 2019. (Source: en.wikipedia.org Greenwell was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, to a French mother and an English father. The family moved back to London's South Kensington neighbourhood before her second birthday. She attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art for a year. Greenwell said it was good, but it made her realise she did not want to go to drama school before trying her luck at pilot season in Los Angeles, California. Shameless, the Emmy-winning Showtime drama, was her first job. She booked it when she was 22. Prior to that she was planning on returning to London. Booking Shameless forced her to rent a car and find an apartment, so she did not return to London for nine months. (Source:en.wikipedia.org))

When Shameless returned with season 2, Mandy came back, but with a different face. From season 2 and on, Mandy is played by Emma Greenwell, a British actress with little previous experience. Throughout the show, Mandy goes through a lot, dealing with deep yet misguided feelings for Lip, and all the drama with her brother, Mickey Milkovich (Noel Fisher), and Ian. Mandy may be crass and reckless, but she is definitely a fan-favorite character, which made her disappearance in the middle of season 5 even more shocking. She appears once more in season 5, during which she explains to Ian that she has returned to Chicago and is working at an escort agency. After that, Mandy's never seen again.

Even years later, many Shameless fans remain confused as to why Mandy left the show. No official reason for the decision was given by either Greenwell or the people behind Shameless, so many assumed it happened simply because Mandy's story was finished. But what's the real reason Greenwell left the popular Showtime series? (Source: www.looper.com The most obvious reason Greenwell might've decided to leave the series is because she wanted to pursue different acting roles. In 2016, when Shameless season 6 aired, Greenwell starred in two different feature films. Coincidentally, they are both period films based on works by Jane Austen. (Source:www.looper.com wThe first film, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is what the title suggests — a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, but with zombies. Greenwell plays Caroline Bingley, a vain woman who disapproves of her older brother, Charles Bingley (Douglas Booth), and his feelings for Jane Bennet (Bella Heathcote). The movie was filmed at the end of 2014 (via Surrey Live), and according to Rossum's Instagram, season 5 of Shameless started filming in July of 2014. It's possible that Greenwell's filming schedule for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies cut into filming for the second half of Shameless season 5, leading to the diminished storyline for Mandy. Her second film in 2016 was Love & Friendship, in which Greenwell plays Catherine DeCourcy Vernon. The film was originally scheduled for production in Summer 2014, but was pushed back to early 2015 (via Evening Herald). (Source:ww.looper.com)))
