Camilla Power

Camilla Power (born November 13, 1976) is a well-known English actress of Irish ancestry who is probably most notably remembered in her role as Jill Pole in BBC's TV adaptation of the book The Silver Chair by C. S. Lewis. The show was aired in the six Sundays preceeding Christmas 1990, shortly after her 14th birthday.

Power started acting from an early age; her very first T.V. appearance was on a chicken nuggets advertisement.

She made her stage debut in "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" at the National Theatre in 1998. Her voice was featured in the English dubbed version of Alice. She was a regular cast member on Yorkshire Television soap Emmerdale for two years.

In 2006 she appeared in the BBC drama Waterloo Road as English teacher Lorna Dickey and returned for the second series in 2007, until her character committed suicide having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Power was born in Cork, Ireland and is a distant cousin of Irish actor Tyrone Power. Power's great-grandfather was Sir John Power, Member of Parliament for Wimbledon before the Second World War. Power Hall at Chatham House is named in his honour.

She attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone. During her teenage years, Power's heart-throb idol was film actor Liam Neeson according to Inside Soap magazine 1994. She is married and has one child.

In early 2008 she starred in an episode of Torchwood as Pearl, a circus star who escapes an old cinema and seeks revenge on those who put her out of business.
