Early life and education
Groome was born in Derby, the daughter of Paul Groome, a publican and chef who died in 2009, and Fiona (Tulloch), a drama and vocal coach. She has an older sister, Alex, and a younger sister, Eden, who are both also actresses. Groome, at the age of nine, and instead of Alex who had another commitment at the time, auditioned for a role in the touring stage version of the musical Annie Get Your Gun and got the part. She trained at her mother's drama school, Nottingham Television Workshop and Derby Youth Theatre and attended Trent College.
After her acting debut in the TV film, A Fish Out of Water in 2001, Groome appeared in an episode of the short-lived TV series, Dangerville, playing an orphan.
When Groome was just 14 years old, she landed her first feature film role in the well-received British independent film London to Brighton in 2006, playing a 12-year-old runaway. That year she was also one of the eight young adventurers on Serious Amazon for CBBC. In 2007 Groome had a role in Elaine Wickham's short, My Mother.
In 2008, Groome had a minor role in comedy, horror The Cottage. Her breakthrough role was as 14-year-old, boyfriend-searching Georgia Nicolson alongside Aaron Johnson in the 2008 film Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, for which she won the award for Best Child Actor at the Buster International Children's Film Festival. She also had a minor role in horror film The Disappeared.
In 2009, she made her stage debut in Tusk Tusk, a new play by Polly Stenham at the Royal Court Theatre in London. The same year, she appeared in the short Leaving Eva and an episode of The Bill. In 2010, Groome appeared in an episode of British television detective drama Lewis, as well as the short Silent Things.
In 2011, Groome starred in two shorts, The True Meaning of Love and Six Degrees. She also appeared in Susan Jacobson's The Holding and had a lead role in The Great Ghost Rescue, a film adaptation of Eva Ibbotson's book of the same name.
