Appearing on episodes of the TV series "The New Adventures of Robin Hood," Shelley went on to a supporting part in the '97 English feature drama "Photographing Fairies" and was featured in a starring role in the well-received 2001 period film "Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India." In '05, she joined the cast of the lesbian TV drama "The L Word" as socialite Helena Peabody, and remained on the lauded American series as a regular until its conclusion four years later.
