Elizabeth Carling (born 20 October 1967 in Middlesbrough, Teesside) is an English actress best known for her performances in "Boon", "Goodnight Sweetheart", "Barbara", and "Casualty". Elizabeth is also a trained singer, her roles in "Goodnight Sweetheart" and "Border Café" being developed to show her talent in many musical genres. In the 1990s, Elizabeth was briefly engaged to Neil Morrissey, whom she met while filming ITV drama "Boon" and with whom she also appeared in an episode of BBC sitcom "Men Behaving Badly".

Television roles

*"Casualty": In 2007, Liz departed from the hit BBC medical drama "Casualty", in which she had played the role of Dr Selena Donovan. Her character had originally made a brief appearance as a consultant neurologist in April 2003, although her first name was spelled Selina at that time. She returned to the show as a forensic doctor in 2004 and was a regular cast member from that time until leaving. Selena’s storylines have included being kidnapped and stabbed by drug traffickers, contracting MRSA, and having romances with colleagues Harry, Will, and Nathan. In the episode “Nobody’s Perfect” (Air Date: 4 March 2006) she decided to leave her position of police surgeon due to an almost fatal mistake. At the end of Series 20, she gained the position of Associate Specialist at the cost of Maggie’s (Susan Cookson) Consultancy. She left the show at the end of series 21 due to a fatal gun shot wound to her character’s neck, causing the birth of her premature baby – but the loss of her own life.

*"Goodnight Sweetheart": Liz took over the role of Phoebe Sparrow in the last three series of the time travel sitcom "Goodnight Sweetheart", alongside Nicholas Lyndhurst. The part was originally played by Dervla Kirwan. After the series she released an album of Wartime covers also titled "Goodnight Sweetheart".

*"Barbara": Liz played Linda, the daughter of the eponymous matriarch in the ITV sitcom "Barbara". She appeared in 24 of the series' 29 episodes, from 1999-2003, playing opposite her on-screen husband, Martin Pond (Mark Benton).

*"Crocodile Shoes II": Liz played Wendy, the fiancee of Jed Shepperd. She appeared in all six episodes of the six part series.

*"Boon": Liz played Laura Marsh, assistant to Ken Boon, in the ITV private investigator series "Boon". She appeared in 40 episodes of Series 4, 5 and 6, from 1989-1991. This was her first major TV role.
