Caroline Keiff is an English theatre actress.


Born in London, she trained at Guildford School of Acting and received a First Class BA (Hons). She made her debut in The Far Pavilions at the Shaftesbury Theatre before embarking on a successful career in musical theatre.

As well as her musical roles, Keiff took several leads in pantomimes and critically acclaimed roles in shows such as Hedda Gabler, in which she played Thea Elvsted. She also twice featured in the Doctor Who audio dramas for Big Finish.


Keiff made her musical debut in Guys and Dolls at the Courtyard Theatre. She subsequently appeared in supporting roles in Little Shop of Horrors and 42nd Street and played the lead in Cabaret.

In 2006, Keiff joined the original West End cast of Wicked as a chorus member, before understudying the role of Glinda and Nessarose, the latter of which she portrayed full time after Katie Rowley Jones departed. After a year, she left to be directed by fellow Wicked castmember Desmond Barrit in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice in Sheringham and is featured on the studio album of the musical Love Never Dies. Keiff returned to the West End soon afterwards to join the original London cast of Legally Blonde as Vivienne Kensington.

After leaving Legally Blonde, Keiff continued to play a mixture of high profile and smaller scale roles, notably as the lead in Carmen and the Baroness in The Sound of Music.
