Born Eleanor May Tomlinson on May 19, 1992 in London, England, she was the daughter of veteran television actor Malcolm Tomlinson and Judith Hibbert, a stage actress and singer. Her brother, Ross Tomlinson, also followed in his parents' footsteps with small roles in UK-based features and television. At an early age, Tomlinson moved with her family to the county town of Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, where she attended Beverley High School. While still a student there, she made her acting debut in the TV drama "Falling" (ITV, 2005) opposite Penelope Wilton and Michael Kitchen. The following year, Tomlinson earned her first feature credit as the adolescent version of Jessica Biel's noblewoman in "The Illusionist." Her first substantive role came as Jas in the popular teen comedy-drama "Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging" (2008), based on the novels by Louise Rennison.
Guest turns on television and a minor role in the blockbuster "Alice in Wonderland" preceded her international breakout project in Bryan Singer's "Jack the Giant Slayer" (2013). However, her performance as an independent-minded princess who went largely unseen by audiences, who avoided the picture after its drubbing by critics. Undaunted, Tomlinson returned to television with a plum supporting role as the ill-fated Isabel Neville in "The White Queen." That same year, Tomlinson was cast as Georgiana Darcy, devoted sister to literary heartthrob Mr. Darcy (Matthew Rhys) in "Death Comes to Pemberley," an adaptation of P.D. James' novel of the same name, which reunites many of the characters featured in Jane Austen's classic novel, Pride and Prejudice.
