Daughter of actor Michael Anthony and actress Bernadette Milnes.
Started acting in parents' theatre company from the age of 10.
At 14 she became the youngest member of the National Youth Theatre.
At 16 she was singled out by photographer David Bailey to be the face of the 80s.
Posed nude for Playboy in an attempt to shake off her "English Rose" typecast and make her more appealing to the Hollywood casting directors.
After she starred in the play Pinocchio in London's West End at the age of 10, her parents were so appalled at her precocious nature that they sent her to a convent school in Torquay, Devon.
Speaks French and Dutch fluently.
Her production company is Barnaby Pictures.
Her looks and acting style were once infamously described by Victor Lewis-Smith, TV critic of the (London) "Evening Standard", as "like scoffing a whole packet of icing sugar: very sweet but rather nauseating after a while".
In 1995 appeared in two parodies of horror classics, Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995) and Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde (1995).
Son, James Anthony 'Jimi' Boswell (born May 21, 2004), with composer Simon Boswell.
