Patricia Caroline Potter, Born in Canterbury, Kent on the 3rd, March, 1975.
A graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, Potter married her partner, doctor Jim Down, on 19 May 2007. In 2006, Potter ran the Flora London Marathon for the Anthony Nolan Trust in 4:53:54, raising over £3,000 for the charity.
She sang "Can’t Help Loving That Man of Mine" and "The Way You Look Tonight" at co-star Tina Hobley’s wedding in December 2006.
On 24th April 2009, it was announced that Potter has become pregnant with twins with her husband Jim. The babies are due in October.
On stage, Potter has appeared in theatrical versions of The Duchess of Malfi, Much Ado About Nothing, and Happy End. Her first television role came in 1997, when she played a florist in the third series of ITV drama Soldier Soldier. Potter has also appeared in The Bill, Brookside and the Scarlet Pimpernel, as well as the film Shakespeare in Love. She played herself in Ricky Gervais's comedy Extras as an ex-girlfriend of Gervais' character Andy Millman. She said of the role: "It was quite frightening leaving the security of the Holby environment which I know so well and going onto a new set but it was a fantastic experience which I thoroughly enjoyed."
After leaving Holby City, Potter appeared in BBC Two sitcom Jam and Jerusalem, before returning to theatre with the play An Eligible Man. She said of the transition: "I'm in a strange state somewhere between excitement and terror! It's been a long time since I was last on stage so I was worried that I would find it difficult and frightening but actually it's been great fun and I've thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsal process. We had our first preview last night which was quite an adrenaline rush!"
Potter's most notable role to date was that of Diane Lloyd in BBC medical drama Holby City. While researching for the Casualty spin off, she actually witnessed open heart surgery to enhance her role as a medical employee, deeming the experience "fascinating", and stating: "I think I'd have made a good surgeon in real life as I'm very careful and fussy about making my stitches perfect!"
