Actress. She is best known for her role of Sarah Jane Smith in the popular British TV series "Doctor Who". Born in Liverpool, she took dance lessons at the age of five and performed in a production with the Royal Ballet. Following grammar school, she attended drama school and joined the Liverpool Playhouse as an assistant manager.

Sladen's first steady work came in the series "Coronation Street" with the part of Anita Reynolds followed by guest star roles in the series "Z Cars" and "Special Branch", among others.
