Claire Ross-Brown (born 11 November 1972) is an English actress. Claire was born in Chelsea, London. Her father is English and her mother, although English, is of Italian and Malaysian ancestry. Claire studied at the Corona Stage Academy.

Ross-Brown's acting debut was in the long-running successful British television series EastEnders and then films such as The Rainbow by Ken Russell. Whilst at stage school Claire became one of the first lingerie models for the well-known high street chain C & A. It was a controversial campaign at the time as she was only 14 years of age and lingerie was a new concept for such young girls.

After some years away from acting, where she focused on her studying, Claire then did a four-year stint as head-hunter in Banking and Finance (she was 19 at the time and the youngest in her company to do this job).

Claire then returned to the screen appearing in the cable TV show Agony in England. In 1999 Claire moved to Copenhagen, Denmark. She is known in Denmark for her role as Claire, in the Danish cult series Klovn which has been Denmark’s most successful comedy ever, hence Claire's breakthrough into the Danish film and TV market. Claire stars alongside comedians Casper Christensen, Frank Hvam and actress Iben Hjejle.

As well as appearing in TV and films in Denmark and abroad, Ross-Brown has appeared as herself in shows such as "Come Dine With Me" (Danish: 4 stjerners middag, Djævleræs and Master chef) amongst others and is one of the main English voice over artists in Denmark. Claire has appeared in films such as Love me Forever, Take the Trash out (Danish, Blå Mænd, Pisteleros and The Collector (Danish: Inkasso). In 2012 Claire appeared in In Real Life and The Stranger Inside. Claire is also the new face of "Intraceuticals" for 2012.
