Caitlin Blackwood will be appearing at Awesome Con on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in the Wibbily Wobbly Timey Wimey Booth in the Backlot – Booth Number TBD.
Caitlin Lily Blackwood was born on 23/06/2000. Although she was born in County Antrim, Northern Ireland she was raised in Inverness, Scotland from the age of 6. Caitlin was cast in the role of Amelia Pond, a younger version of her real-life cousin’s character, Amy Pond in Doctor Who opposite Matt Smith where they famously shared a variety of food before settling on fish fingers and custard for him and ice cream for her. She went on to reprise the role in several more episodes with the Doctor but it would be her older cousin who traveled through space and time whilst she, little Amelia Pond, waited.
Caitlin recently completed filming her first short film with award-winning director Ryan Hendrick and fellow Doctor Who companion Frazer Hines, Jamie McCrimmond in the show. Caitlin is currently attending college in Edinburgh and hopes to pursue a career in acting.
