Birth Name

Susan Penhaligon




Susan was born in Manila, but brought up in England. Following in her mother's footsteps, she trained as an actress at the Webber Douglas Academy and then joined a repertory company in Worthing, Sussex, where she worked as an assistant stage manager, looked after props, and played bit parts.

After a year, she began to get work in television and film, notably the part of Prue Sorenson in the mini-series 'A Bouquet of Barbed Wire'.

For most of the 1990s, Susan did little acting work, but she is now back, with a new Doctor Who movie, 'Primeval' (2001), touring in Arthur Miller's 'Broken Glass' and in Ira Levin's 'Deathtrap' and also taking on a television role in the 2002 series of 'A Touch of Frost'.

Susan's partner is the English actor Duncan Preston.
