Coleman auditioned for acting schools in 2005 when she was discovered by the producers of the Emmerdale television show. She was given the role of the annoying, murderous young woman, Jasmine Thomas, which she played for four seasons (168 episodes).
The role earned her much critical acclaim and introduced her to a wider audience. Coleman later had recurring roles in shows such as Titanic, Waterloo Road, and Room at the Top before she made her screen debut with the role of Connie in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Coleman’s next big role on the small screen was that of Clara Oswald in the BBC’s long-running science fiction show Doctor Who. In May 2013, Coleman began using the shortened version of her name – Jenna Coleman – professionally. She starred in her second feature film in 2016, the romantic drama Me Before You.
