Christine Tremarco (born 1977 in Liverpool, England) is a British television actress whose career began in 1992.

Early life[edit]

Educated at St Cecilia's Infant School and then Holly Lodge Girls' College, she was spotted in a school play and invited to a new dance and drama school. Then, when attending a drama group, an Australian casting agent offered her a role in The Leaving of Liverpool, a 1950s-based drama about the forced migration of children to Australia.[1] At the age of 16, when the programme was broadcast, she decided to pursue an acting career full-time, and "never got round" to going to drama school.[2]


Having already appeared in The Leaving of Liverpool, Tremarco went on to star in two series of Springhill in 1996/1997 as Trish Freeman.

In 2001 she appeared in Presence by David Harrower at the Royal Court Theatre.[3]

She is perhaps most famous, however, for her role in school drama Waterloo Road as school secretary and learning support assistant Davina Shackleton, a role she has portrayed from 2007 to 2009. In her final episode, her character was last seen departing on a train to an unknown destination after an argument with long-term boyfriend Tom Clarkson portrayed by Jason Done. Her character suspected Tom of having an affair with Rose Kelly portrayed by Elaine Symons.

She played Ellie Morgan in a BBC One drama miniseries Moving On, entitled Drowning Not Waving, which was broadcast in May 2009.

Tremarco guest starred in the BBC medical drama, Casualty in 2010 as Linda Andrews.[4] Following a positive response to the character, she was reintroduced as a main character in 2011.[5] Tremarco left the series in 2013.[6]

In 2017 Tremarco appeared in Little Boy Blue as Marie Thompson, the mother of one of the gang members involved in assisting the cover up of Rhys Jones' murder in 2007.
