Personal life[edit]

Beaven was educated at St Mary's R.C. Primary School in Isleworth then at Gumley House Convent School, Isleworth.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

Film & television[edit]

Her acting debut was in 1988 in the film Buster where she played the young Nicky Edwards alongside Phil Collins[3][4]. Another one of her first roles included Earth Warp where she starred in all 10 episodes.[5] After parts in The Laughter of God[6], Mole's Christmas[7] and The Snow Queen[8] (the latter two being shows she provided voices for), she also provided voices for two other animated series, The Dreamstone[9] and Bimble's Bucket[10], in the 1990s, both of which were created by Michael Jupp. In 1995 she made her stage debut as Wendla in an RSC production of Spring Awakening[11][12][13], and the following year saw her TV debut as Natalie Wild in the BBC series The Wild House[14]. This was followed by a role in the ITV series Wavelength, about a children’s radio station, in which she played Kyla Kane.[citation needed]

2000 saw Beaven take more roles in shows aimed at adults rather than children. The first one of these was that of teenage rebel Sarah Addis in the series Down to Earth[15]. This was followed by her portrayal of Carys in Arthur's Dyke[16] as well as small parts in Doctors (2003)[citation needed]} and Casualty (2004)[citation needed]. She had previously appeared in Casualty on 25 January 1997, playing the daughter of paramedic Josh Griffiths; her character died in hospital from injuries suffered in a house fire.

On 11 April 2008 she played Nikki, girlfriend to Michael, in the opening episode of the eighth series of My Family[17].

On 28 June 2008 Beaven made another appearance in Casualty, playing a character called Sally[18], the daughter and carer of a disabled woman who gets hit by a car.

In January 2010 she appeared in two episodes of BBC soap opera EastEnders in the role of Archie Mitchell's solicitor Emma West,[19] and in Aug 2010 she played the part of Sarah Gilligan in Holby City[20]. She can also be seen in the television advertising campaign for Zoopla.[21]

In January 2012 she had a guest role alongside Marcus Patric in an episode of the BBC1 daytime soap Doctors[22].
