Burrows was born in London, England. An only child, both her parents are socialists. Her father is an architect and teacher; her mother is a teacher and feminist. She was discovered in Covent Garden by the fashion photographer Beth Boldt. Burrows stands 5 ft. 11 in (1.80 m) and began a successful modelling career.
Burrows made her film debut in 1993 with a small role in Jim Sheridan's In the Name of the Father. Her first significant acting roles came in 1995, as an ambitious young Irishwoman in Circle of Friends. She appeared in Ngozi Onwurah's Welcome II The Terrordome. Following this, she starred in the BBC production of Dennis Potter's Karaoke (1996). Subsequently, she appeared in Hotel de Love, Lovelife, Nevada, One Night Stand, and The Matchmaker. In 1999, she appeared in Mike Figgis’ experimental film The Loss of Sexual Innocence, in which she played twins; one raised in England, the other in Italy. Burrows appeared in the thriller film Deep Blue Sea and later played the title role in a production of Miss Julie, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
