Silent Witness has been going since 1996 so it’s not the most surprising thing in the world that it’s featured some future stars over the years.
The forensic crime drama has had the public hooked for decades and due to the nature of the show always tackling different cases, there’s plenty of room for young actors to get a big break.
This particular actor got her first large TV role in a two-part storyline, springboarding her career to unimaginable heights just a year later when she landed possibly one of the biggest roles in film.

Since then she’s appeared in two of the top 15 highest grossing films of all time as well as several other notable projects, and looks to have a long career in Hollywood ahead.
Daisy Ridley, 29, got her biggest acting role to date at the time when she landed the part of Hannah Kennedy in Silent Witness.
She starred in a pair of episodes in season 17 in which Hannah’s friend had been murdered.
Over the course of the first episode Daisy put in a notable performance, Hannah initially knowing more about the murder than she let on but eventually uncovering some clues herself.
In doing so she thinks she might know who the murderer is and starts piecing things together before going to confront the man she suspects.
Unfortunately Hannah’s suspicion was slightly off and she gets the wrong man, with the murderer finally catching up to her and silencing her permanently.
She then appears again in the next episode in an autopsy and flashback scene.
This was only Daisy’s second TV role at the time in 2014, but a year later she would land the role of a lifetime as one of the new leads in the Star Wars franchise’s newest trilogy.
Playing the role of Rey Skywalker Daisy shot to international stardom, becoming one of the most recognisable faces in Hollywood almost overnight.
Since then she’s also starred in Murder on the Orient Express in 2017 and then the hit kids film Peter Rabbit in 2018 as Cottontail Rabbit.
