Mini Biography

Born 18 February 1994, Ealing, London, England

Rose Williams was born into a creative family; her mother was a costume designer and her father worked as a gardener. At 17, she took her first job at a clothing store in Dover Street Market, which may have been her initial foray into the fashion and entertainment industries.

Rose Williams’ acting career began with appearances in shows like “Casualty.” However, it was her role as Princess Claude in “Reign” that required her to relocate to Toronto for three years, showcasing her commitment to her roles¹. She then starred in the British horror film “The Power,” set in 1970s London, which allowed her to explore a different genre and era.

Her portrayal of Charlotte Heywood in the Andrew Davies adaptation of Jane Austen’s unfinished novel “Sanditon” has been a defining role in her career. The series, set in the Regency era, allowed Williams to delve into a character that combined both the historical aspects of the period with a modern sensibility.
