At the age of 24, actress Bel Powley has already made a name for herself in the industry. This unconventional actress debuted her acting career in 2007 with the character of Daisy Millar in the TV series ‘M.I. High’. In 2008, she was seen in the TV series ‘The Bill’ and ‘Little Dorrit’. Then a year later she was acclaimed for her performance as Carrie Walsh in the TV series ‘Murderland’. Her other notable television role came in ‘The Cabin’ and ‘Benidorm’.
Powley, with the height of 1.57m, made big screen debut in 2013 playing the role of Lauren Buckle in the movie ‘Side by Side’. In 2015, appearing as Minnie Goetze in the American drama movie ‘The Diary of a Teenage Girl’ proved to be a turning point in her career. That same year, she made an appearance as Princess Margaret in the romantic comedy drama movie ‘A Royal Night Out’. She was recently seen in the movies ‘Equals’ and ‘Detour’. Powley is currently busy shooting for the movie ‘Ashes in the Snow’ too along with Carrie Pilby’s post production.
