In July 2015, Bevan played the role of Tamsin Carmichael in the BBC’s two-part television adaptation of Sadie Jones’ debut novel The Outcast.[3]

At the age of one, Bevan was diagnosed with a rare circulatory condition that affected her legs. At 15 she had to undergo a series of operations, causing her mother to suspend her role on the TV series Nip/Tuck for a year.[4][5]
