After attending the Central School of Speech and Drama in London she went to the British television. She gave her debut in the Carry On Laughing sitcom series in 1975. In the following years she appeared in series like West End Tales, Don't Wait Up (beside Nigel Havers), The Sweeney and Doctor Who. In 1982 she was seen as Elizabeth Sarah Lavinia Spencer, Lady Diana's oldest sister, in the television drama Charles & Diana: A Royal Love Story by James Goldstone. In 1987 she had a short appearance in a flashback sequence as Emily Lloyd's mother in David Leland's film Wish You Were Here (1987).
