Caroline was their only child. Her mother was only 24 when she had her and her father was 25. Money was always tight. Caroline grew up with very little, but she was rich in knowledge. She loved to learn, to read, to write, and to imagine. Her imagination was something that proceeded her and to this day, still does. One of her favorite things to do, though, was travel. Caroline had family all over the world, it seemed; most of them residing in London, England. They would travel to London every summer, where Caroline would become close to her cousins. The best thing she did there, though, was attend the theatre. This is where Caroline fell in love with the art of acting. She would go back to Spain and day dream of growing older so that she could one day become an actress.
As she grew up, Caroline did what most teenagers in Ibiza did, which was party. She learned at a young age what alcohol and drugs were and she was definitely not a stranger. Although she did her fair share of partying and attending night clubs, she was still a good, grounded girl. She did well in school, despite the crowd she hung around, which made her a bit rough around the edges. Which made it a bit awkward when she decided to leave Ibiza when she was 18 to attend Manchester Metropolitan University School of Theatre. Leaving home was a big step for her, but Caroline was always independent and being in the UK was like a second home to her.
At school is where she learned what being an actress really meant. She took a lot of improv classes and really enjoyed making people laugh. But she found herself taking a liking to drama. It was easy for her to tap into the deeper part of things. Luckily for her, going to school there was a great way to make connections and start a career. Although, the way that Caro made the connections she did was definitely different. She began dating one of her professors who helped her get her first gig, but of course, came at a high price. Caro was in an extremely manipulative relationship, where she had to have sex with him, in order to get the auditions that she wanted. In 2009, she landed her first role ever. Small but it was a start. Being behind a camera was like a drug. All she wanted was more. So, of course, she would give her professor what he wanted so that she could get what she wanted. From 2009-2011, it was a very rough time for Caroline. Her self-esteem was at an all-time low and although she was working a bit, she was questioning if it was what she really wanted. The abuse from her boyfriend was taking a toll on her. She fell into a deep depression and didn't know how to get out of it. It wasn't until she got the role of Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones did she start to become herself again. She was surrounded by some of the most amazing people she'd ever met, who she confided in, and who gave her strength. Thrones soon became more popular than anyone expected and she left her boyfriend. He was angry and possessive, which ended up making him stalk her for a number of months before she filed a restraining order against him.
Once Thrones began to pick up, Caroline began getting recognized by fans and critics alike, which helped her get more jobs. Thrones was a miracle for her, as she regained her life back. Slowly she started to enjoy life more, started to trust more, and started to live the life she should have lived years before being in her abusive relationship. Recently, Caroline has become extremely outspoken about the abuse she went through, and has become an advocate against physical and sexual abuse with the Joyful Heart Foundation and Refuge in the UK. She wants to be able to use her newfound fame for good and hope for other women to learn from her mistakes. However, on the contrary, Caroline is a pretty private person and doesn't enjoy the media. She would rather act and go home at night, than have her picture taken or get free things. Since 2012, Caroline's career has taken an upwards and it seems to only be rising.
