Louise Jameson is best known for playing Leela alongside Fourth Doctor Tom Baker in the late seventies. 

Away from Doctor Who she is probably best known as Rosa di Marco in Eastenders. She has done nine other series for the BBC including Tom Brown's School Days, Doctor Who,The Omega Factor, Bergerac, Rides, and her personal favourite, Tenko, not to mention guest appearances in Casualty, Wycliffe, The Bill and some classic 'one offs' such as Cider with Rosie and The Game. Series for other companies includes Stick with Me Kid (Disney), The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole (YTV) andMollie (Sky).

Her first love however is the theatre and very shortly after finishing her RADA training, where she won the Shakespeare Award for Best Classical Performance, she joined the RSC for three years and played Stratford, London and America in numerous plays including Romeo and Juliet, Richard II, Love's Labour's Lost andThe Taming of the Shrew. Non-Shakespearean roles included Molly in TheMarquis of Keith (with Sir Ian McKellen), Sylvia Plath in Three Women, Kate inPassion Play (Best New Play) and Nadia Polikarpovna in Gorky's Barbarians.

More recently she has worked with the Royal National Theatre as The Woman in Death of a Salesman. Away from the 'Royals' other favourite theatre includes Rosalind in As You Like It (Regent's Park Open Air Theatre), Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Old Vic), Miriam Gotchalk in Mephisto and Beatrice inMuch Ado About Nothing (both for Oxford Theatre Company), Roxanne in Sticky Fingers (a musical for the King's Head), Moll in Moll Flanders (also a musical, Yorkshire Playhouse) and Mollie in Sleeping Nightie (Royal Court Upstairs).

Several years ago she started tlc productions ltd., ( with a view to performing/producing/directing new writing/compilations and to take a sideways look at the classics to which end she produced and directed Wotcha Will, a compilation of the canon dipping into 17 of the plays and premiered Sex Wars with David Warwick and (brilliant guitarist) Simon James. Also Louise performs Love Letters with Colin Baker and most excitingly has premiered her one woman show at Hackney Empire calledFace Value by Helen Goldwyn.

Jameson has also recorded numerous Radio 4 afternoon plays, and some monologue work for Radio 3. She lives in Kent with her two sons Harry and Tom and believes them to be by far the best things she's ever produced.
