At 35 years old, Mandip Gill has this physical status:
Gill appeared in several theatre productions, before landing her first television role as Phoebe Jackson (later McQueen) in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks. Gill had attended a number of auditions for the soap in the past, and she was unsure if the character of Phoebe was right for her, but after a number of callbacks, Gill was given the role. Phoebe was introduced as a homeless teenager and a friend for established character George Smith (Steven Roberts). Gill chose to leave the show in 2015 and Phoebe was killed off as part of the long-running "Gloved Hand Killer" storyline. The following year, Gill had a guest role in the BBC sitcom series Cuckoo, before appearing in Doctors for a five episode arc. Gill played Shazia Amin, a pregnant homeless woman. In 2017, Gill appeared in The Good Karma Hospital, and an episode of Casualty. She also appeared in Kay Mellor's BBC drama Love, Lies and Records as Talia, a junior registrar.
In October 2017, the BBC announced that Gill had been cast in the eleventh series of Doctor Who, as a companion to the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, starting in 2018. Gill was joined by her former Hollyoaks colleague Tosin Cole, who plays Ryan Sinclair, another of the Doctor's companions. Gill continued to appear in the twelfth and thirteenth series, as well as a series of specials airing in 2022.
In May 2022, Gill made her West End theatre debut in the play 2:22 A Ghost Story.
