Billie Piper

Billie Paul Piper (born Lianne Piper, 22 September 1982, in Swindon, Wiltshire) is an English singer and actress.

She began her career in the late 1990s as a pop singer and then switched to acting. She started in acting and dancing and was talent spotted at the Sylvia Young stage school by Smash Hits magazine who wanted a "face" for their magazine. A recording contract was the route given to her. She later decided to retire from singing and refocus on her original ambition, acting. Her most famous role is as Rose Tyler, companion to the Doctor, in the television series Doctor Who from 2005 to 2006, a role she reprised in 2008 and 2010. In 2007, Broadcast magazine listed Piper at no. 6 in its "Hot 100" list of influential on-screen performers, the top woman on the list. From 2007 until 2011, she starred as the high-flying escort Belle de Jour in the TV series Secret Diary of a Call Girl.

Personal life
Piper was born in Swindon, Wiltshire, England, to Paul Piper and Mandy Kent. Piper has one younger brother, Charley, and two younger sisters, Harley and Elle.

Piper married businessman, DJ, and television presenter Chris Evans in a secret ceremony in May 2001 in Las Vegas after six months of dating. Their marriage attracted much comment due to the sixteen-year age gap between the two. The couple separated in 2004 and later divorced in May 2007. They have remained friends.

A story in The Independent on 27 June 2006 stated that Piper has declared that she does not wish to claim any money from Evans's reported £30m wealth or his £540,000 salary from Radio Two. "I'm not taking a penny from him," she told the Radio Times, "I think that's disgusting." Piper also revealed in her interview with Radio Times that she left her pop star career with very little money. Evans has admitted that the age gap was a reason in seeking the divorce.

Piper dated and lived with law student Amadu Sowe from 2004 to 2006.

Piper married actor Laurence Fox, son of actor James Fox, on 31 December 2007 at St Mary's Church in Easebourne, West Sussex. They live in Easebourne, Midhurst in West Sussex. Their first son was born by an emergency Caesarean section on 21 October 2008, following a 26-hour labour. In a later interview Piper revealed that medical staff were concerned that their son would suffer from oxygen starvation if the birth was to continue as planned. Piper said, "they were worried about him losing oxygen to his brain. I was like, 'Cut him out now!'" On 28 October 2011 the couple announced that she was 15 weeks pregnant with their second child . Piper gave birth to their second son, Eugene Pip, on 5 April 2012.

Piper became friends with her former Doctor Who co-star David Tennant during their time on the show. She is also close to Matt Smith, who took over playing the title character following his departure. After it was announced that Smith would be replacing Tennant in the role, she stated "Yes, I hate that he's left! But then I know Matt Smith really well and I love him and I think he's such a brilliant actor. The role couldn't have gone to a better guy. He's capable of that. He's got big shoes to fill, but I'm certain he can do it." Smith also reportedly asked her for advice after learning he had won the part.
