Years before her graduation from Drama Centre London, in 1974 Fitzgerald appeared as Susan Walker in the film "Swallows and Amazons" based on Arthur Ransome's classic book of the same title and following her graduation as the daughter of a beauty queen in the comedy Hear My Song. She came to international attention in 1993 when she starred with Hugh Grant in the Australian comedy Sirens. The film landed Fitzgerald an Australian Film Institute nomination for Best Actress in a Lead Role. Two years later she again appeared with Grant in the comedy The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain. Fitzgerald appeared in a steady stream of independent feature films through the 1990s and 2000s, among them the all-star cast in A Man of No Importance (1994), Brassed Off (1996), the Czech World War II fighter pilot drama Dark Blue World (2001), and the 2004 drama, Secret Passage, set during the Spanish Inquisition, (UK title: The Lion's Mouth). In 2006 she appeared in In a Dark Place, and in 2014 she played Miriam in Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings.
