Freema Agyeman was born in 1979 in London to a Ghanaian father and Iranian mother. She made an appearance in the ''Crossroads'' [[Main/{{Revival}} Revival]] in 2003 (as one of the hotel staff) and like many a British actor, has been in ''Series/TheBill'' (in her case, three times as two different characters).

Performing a YouLookFamiliar, she played Adeola Odoshi in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E12ArmyOfGhosts "Army of Ghosts"]], where she ended up [[ShootTheDog put out of her misery]] by the Doctor. Three episodes later, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E1SmithAndJones "Smith and Jones"]], she made her first appearance as med student Martha Jones.[[note]]A character described inaccurately as "the first black companion", a title that actually goes to Mickey Smith in the TV show -- she was just the first to get billing in the opening credits and the first to be a regular companion, as Mickey only appeared in four straight episodes as a companion).[[/note]] The character's similarity to Adeola was {{Hand Waved}} in her first episode by saying that Adeola was Martha's cousin.

When she was young, she was a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' {{nerd}}, thus making her {{one of us}}.

She plays Larissa, mentor to the young Carrie Bradshaw (Creator/AnnaSophiaRobb), in the ''Series/SexAndTheCity'' prequel ''The Carrie Diaries''.
