Background

Bea is gutsy and unapologetically ambitious. She’s also not your typical F1, unafraid to jump in with both feet and get her hands dirty. The bigger and more gruesome the challenge, the better for Bea – she can think of nothing worse than wasting her time on minors. She’s hungry to learn but her ambition to succeed can sometimes make her seem dismissive to those around her, especially the nurses.

She takes pride in her appearance and loves the attention of men and women alike. Women because she fancies them and men because it gives her the ability to wrap them round her little finger. She manages her emotions well and would never like to show her soft side at work, but can be reduced to a blubbering wreck watching a rom-com.

Bea is very loyal and fiercely protective of those she truly loves. From a working class background, she’s worked tirelessly to put herself through medical school, where she studied next to Rash. She’s now supporting her alcoholic father after Bea’s mother left when she was a young girl.

During her short stint in Holby, Bea also supports Alicia through her rape ordeal
