Jenna Coleman — initially credited in Doctor Who as Jenna-Louise Coleman — played companion Clara Oswald in Doctor Who from 2012-15. Coleman later appeared as Bonnie in the Doctor Who television story The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion and read AudioGO audio story The Time Machine with Michael Cochrane and Nicholas Briggs.
Prior to landing the role on Doctor Who, Coleman was perhaps best known for portraying Jasmine Thomas in Emmerdale and had also appeared in Waterloo Road as Lindsay James, the Marvel feature film Captain America: The First Avenger as Connie and the 2012 miniseries Titanic as Annie Desmond.
In June 2013, Coleman announced that she was shortening her professional name to Jenna Coleman, and was credited thus beginning with The Day of the Doctor. (She does not actually receive screen credit for the minisode Clara and the TARDIS, which was released after the announcement.)
Also in 2013, she appeared as herself in The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, and also co-starred in the three-part BBC miniseries Death Comes to Pemberley, which began the day after the broadcast of The Time of the Doctor.
Coleman has become the longest-serving companion actress of the revival era, surpassing Karen Gillan by several episodes.
After filming her final scenes for Doctor Who in late August 2015, Coleman took on the lead role of Queen Victoria in the ITV miniseries Victoria. During a break in filming series 9, she shot a supporting role in the romantic drama Me Before You.
