This beautiful British Actress of Nigerain heritage is well on her way to leaving her mark in the acting world.

When Caroline first told her parents of her acting aspirations, they took action and sent her a boarding school in Nigeria. Small problem. They didn't tell Caroline about this development. Caroline thought she was going to Nigeria for a 2 week holiday. She tried everything to get back to London even a hunger strike but her parents stood their ground. They wanted her to follow her father's footsteps and become a doctor. It took 12 years for one parent to come around. Her father still has not accepted her career choice.

Caroline is probably most famous for playing the role of Sasha Williams in the hit British teen soap “As If” which ran between 2001 and 2004. Her sexy looks, strong personality, and her role as the seductive Elaine Hardy in the hit British television drama, “Footballers' Wives” helped her attain small screen diva status and establish her as one of the best in Britain.

Her other television work includes “40″, “Babymother”, “Babyfather”, “Holby City”, “Judas Kiss”, “Casualty”, “Free Fall”, and “Brothers and Sisters”. She appeared as Lisa Hallett, a member of the secret organisation of Torchwood who had been transformed into a half-human, half-Cyberman in “Cyberwoman”, an episode of the Doctor Who spin-off series “Torchwood”. She also starred as Tamara, a fellow demon hunter, in the 3rd Season Premiere of “Supernatural”.

She won Best Actress in the emerging talent category at the Screen Film and TV Awards dubbed the Black Oscars for her role in “As If”.

Caroline moved to Hollywood where there are more roles for black women and has managed to make quite a smooth transition into film. She has starred in movies such as Eragon, Breaking and Entering, Take 3 Girls, The Mistress of Spices, and Virtual Sexuality. Caroline shared the screen with Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux.

The great news is that this is just the beginning for Caroline. She is definitely in it for the long run and we look forward to what she has in store for us!
