She started out in advertisement modeling before getting into playing. Her acting debut came using a small component as Jenny Flex in the 1985 James Bond movie A View to a Kill. In 1988 Doody starred as Alessandra Castorina in the TV mini-series Effort. She starred as Gina Heidemann in the TV mini-series Selling Hitler in 1991. Doody has had recurring characters in the TV series Echoes in 1988, Waking the Dead in 2007, as well as The Practice in 2009.
Is one of a number of actors to be photographed by Claire Newman-Williams, including Thomas Longley, Ben Barnes, and Adam Garcia.
Has two daughters with Gavin O'Reilly: Alanna (born 1996) and Lauren (born 1999).
She turned down star-making roles that went to Nicole Kidman in Days of Thunder (1990) and Sharon Stone in Esminis instinkta (1992). Later, she also refused a part in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Director Peter Jackson personally offered her the role of "Éowyn" in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), but she declined due to her impending pregnancy, which wouldn't have worked with the 18-month on-location production the movies required. The role eventually went to Miranda Otto.
She has been presented with the Prince's Trust Award for Charity, for her constant and generous support to children in need.
Has played opposite three Bond actors in three different movies. She had a cameo appearance in A View to a Kill (1985) in which she shared a scene with Roger Moore, she played Pierce Brosnan's girlfriend in Taffin (1988) and starred along with Sean Connery in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989).
In 2000, she settled a libel action against the Mirror Newspaper Group of Dublin in Ireland, following the publication of a 1999 press article that erroneously claimed she had appeared nude or partially nude on screen. Before the case was due to get underway, a settlement was agreed and Edward Walsh for the Irish Mirror read an apology to the High Court, saying that it was quite untrue that she had ever appeared nude or partially nude in her film roles. He also stated that it is a well-known fact that throughout her career she has always adamantly refused to participate in scenes involving nudity, and that this refusal has cost her the loss of many lucrative roles. The Irish Mirror paid damages, although the actual amount is unknown. Miss Doody told the media that she was quite happy that it was over, and that her good name had been vindicated.
Once lived in a £1.95 million, 10,000 square feet house overlooking the sea at Dalkey, one of the wealthiest and loveliest suburbs of Dublin in the south of Ireland.
Neighbour was the well-known singer, Enya.
I want to do so much more, not huge budget films necessarily, but I just want to play different parts and I only want to do the stuff that I want to do. I don't want to work just for the sake of working. Generally, if a good script comes in I read it and if it appeals to me, it appeals to me. And it doesn't have to be anything -- it doesn't have to be the main character, it doesn't have to be a huge part. It could be a nice cameo -- anything that I think is good and surrounded by good, enthusiastic people.
I try not to take myself too seriously, but I do take my work seriously.
