Happiest of birthdays to actress Billie Piper! She turns 33 today.

The actress got her start as the "Pop Princess" of the UK, being signed to a record deal early in her teens and churning out a handful of #1 hits. But as an alumni of the prestigious Sylvia Young Theatre school, acting was in her blood.

Her breakout role, and the one from which fans know her best, was as companion Rose Tyler in BBC's long-running Doctor Who - and whom many fans will argue was the best companion. She then went on to star in Secret Diary of a Call Girl. She can currently be seen on AMC's gothic horror-drama Penny Dreadful as former prostitute, now Bride of Frankenstein counterpart, Brona Croft.

Let's hope she has a happy birthday!
