British star Billie Piper has been surprisingly daring since switching careers from popstar to acting, appearing in some sex scene and nudity rich after dark television fare. Born in Swindon, England, on 22 September 1982, she became a well-known face in her native UK from her school days. After being a poster girl for music magazine Smash Hits, she was signed as a singer and hit number 1 in the charts aged just 15, the youngest debutante ever to do so. She went on to have a string of hits and marry the much older British television presenter and DJ Chris Evans by the age of just 18.
Acting was always her first love, however, and after huge success in her first big role as Rose Tyler in the hit UK sci-fi show Dr. Who, she has gone on to bag many more high profile roles. She won critical acclaim for the raunchy Secret Diary Of A Call Girl and she's recently bagged her first big role in Hollywood, playing the prostitute lover of Josh Harnett in the series Penny Dreadful.
