Blackwood in 2012
|Relatives||Karen Gillan (cousin)|
Caitlin was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 2000. She moved with her family to Inverness in Scotland when she was six years old and has lived there ever since. Blackwood was until recently studying acting in a college based in Edinburgh.
Blackwood played Alexis in the 2015 episode "Preparing the Weapon" of the crowdfunded TV series Cops and Monsters. In 2017 she appeared in a short film called Sundown directed by Ryan Hendrick.
She played the young Amelia Pond in several Doctor Who episodes; "The Eleventh Hour", "The Big Bang", "Let's Kill Hitler", and "The God Complex", and a cameo in "The Angels Take Manhattan". She is the cousin of Karen Gillan, who portrayed the adult Amy Pond, although they had never met before Blackwood was cast. The reason she got the role was due to her similarity to her older cousin.
