Early life[edit]

New was born in Balham, London,[1] and is the youngest of three sisters. At the age of four, she attended a ballet school. She later joined the National Youth Theatre. Her interest in other cultures led her to visit over 20 countries including spending 3 months in a children's home in Bolivia in 2003.[2] After traveling around the world, she studied English and Spanish at the University of Leeds.[3]

New moved to Spain, where she further studied the language and the Meisner technique. To financially support her studies, she decided to model and was scouted by View Management in Madrid and Barcelona,[2] where they offered her print and commercial work. She studied at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama,[3] and obtained a Masters in acting with Honors in 2011.[citation needed] She can speak fluent Spanish.[4]

Career[edit]

New’s career was launched by American talent manager Stacey Castro, who discovered her in Barcelona, Spain in 2009, during a search for UK casting director Susie Figgis to find the role of "Lucrezia Borgia" for the television series The Borgias.[5] In 2010, she was offered a role in television show The Time in Between, the adaptation of the same-titled María Dueñas novel. She played Rosalinda Fox,[6] a young English woman who is the lover of Juan Luis Beigbeder and friend of Sira Quiroga.[3] In 2011, she landed a lead role in "Shelter", an unaired television pilot. New was managed by Castro until 2012, the year she joined the cast of the Starz TV show Black Sails. She plays Eleanor Guthrie, the daughter of Richard Guthrie, a saloon owner who runs her father's illegal businesses in Nassau. The 8-episode first season premièred on 25 January 2014, and in 2014 she was filming the second season in South Africa.[1]

New played Queen Leila, Princess Aurora's mother, in the Disney film Maleficent, which was released on 30 May 2014.[7]
