Profile Bio Text
Natalia Gastiain Tena (born November 1, 1984) is an English actress and musician.
Tena made her professional debut as Ellie in About a Boy (2002), and began acting full time in 2003. She has played lead roles in stage adaptations of Gone to Earth in 2004, and Nights at the Circus in 2006, and has appeared in smaller roles in other productions, including Shared Experience`s production of Bronte in 2005.
She last appeared in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix as Nymphadora Tonks, a role she will reprise in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. When she went to her audition, she claimed that she did not know that it was a relatively big part, and thought it was an extra. The audition was a spur of the moment audition. She had just enjoyed a glass of red wine when she had the call to come to the audition. She jumped on her bike and when she got there, she tripped over a chair and a table, giving the impression that she was clumsy - which she admits to being - which made her the perfect person to play Nymphadora Tonks. Although her appearance in Order of the Phoenix was relatively brief, she hosted a behind-the-scenes featurette entitled "Trailing Tonks" for the subsequent DVD release. Tena is credited as producer and director of the featurette.
During the aforementioned DVD featurette Trailing Tonks, Tena performs an original Christmas-themed blues song on guitar, claiming to have composed it while working as a busker on the London Underground.
In 2008 she appeared in a UK tour of The Clean House and the films Lecture 21, and in 2009 she is appearing as Desdemona in a Royal Shakespeare Company touring production of Othello directed by Kathryn Hunter.
