Rosie Benson

Features Writer at Boots Health & Beauty, formerly Features Assistant at Marie Claire UK

A journalist with 7+ years' experience in the media industry, specialising in features, entertainment and news journalism, I began my career at the BBC in broadcast media before moving into print and digital magazine journalism.

I have interviewed Hollywood stars from Liv Tyler to Tom Holland and Tatiana Maslany, as well as notable names including former Home Secretary Amber Rudd and Sec. of State for International Development Priti Patel.

My work has been long-listed for One World Media’s Popular Features Award and shortlisted for the BSME Best Innovation Award (2018).
