Previously she was seen in the UK and America in the lead role in the Box TV and PBS drama film "Boudica." Kingston played the great 15th century gladiator queen "Boudica."

Growing up on the outskirts of London, Kingston was first introduced to the theater when she and her family visited her mother's native Germany; where she saw her uncle, an actor, perform. She made her own stage debut at age five, playing the Angel Gabriel in the Nativity play.

Kingston was inspired to pursue an acting career by her English teacher at the all-girls grammar school she attended in Epsom, where she often had leading roles in school plays. She landed her first professional role at age 15 as a judo-chopping bully on the successful British series, "Grange Hill."

After finishing school, she moved to London, where she was accepted into the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.

She also starred in the Birmingham Repertory's productions of "Othello," "The Alchemist," "Traveling Players," "Saved," "Julius Caesar" and "See How They Run."

While Kingston tended to play classical characters on the stage, she took on contemporary roles in British television programs, including "A Killing Exchange," "The Bill," "Crocodile Shoes," "The Knock" and "I Hate Christmas," and in the American cable movies "Weapons of Mass Distraction" and "The Infiltrator."
