Billie Piper

Billie Piper is an English singer, dancer and actress. She made her debut in Scratchy & Co. and, at the age of 15, she signed a recording contract and released her debut single "Because We Want To", which debuted at number one in the UK and made her the youngest artist ever to debut at number one. The single was followed by Piper's album Honey to the B and her second album, Walk of Life. Three years later, she retired from the recording industry and launched an acting career.

Piper's transition into acting began in 2004. Her most famous role is as 'Rose Tyler', companion to The Doctor, in the BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who, a role she later reprised as a guest star. From 2007 until 2011, she starred as the high-flying escort 'Belle de Jour' in the TV series Secret Diary of a Call Girl. She currently stars as 'Brona Croft/Lily' in the Showtime series Penny Dreadful. She will be appearing at Dragon Con Sunday only.
