She was born in Taunton, Somerset, into a forces family and travelled the world as a child. Her first film appearance was in East of Sudan (1964). She first came to the attention of television audiences as Roberta in a BBC dramatisation of The Railway Children, and went on to play the same part in Lionel Jeffries' 1970 film of the book. Her quality of ingenuousness led on to a more serious role in I Start Counting (1969). The transition to adult roles was more difficult, and she is still remembered as a teenager rather than as a mature actress.
