Her father is the British film director Terry Marcel, 79, while her sister Kelly dabbled in acting before becoming a writer.
Rosie herself has become something of a household name after featuring in shows like Holby City and another one of Britain's biggest dramas, The Bill.
But, beyond her career, Rosie has faced difficulties when it comes to her health.
She was diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 20. This is a condition where tissues similar to those of the lining of the womb grow in other places like the fallopian tubes and ovaries.
And once, the star had been bleeding for four months when she passed out in the shower and was rushed to hospital for a blood transfusion. It turned out she had a blood clotting disorder.
'George did your workouts!': Joe Wicks shares Kate Middleton's sweet revelation
Joe Wicks' daily YouTube workouts were one of the lasting legacies of lockdown and had the whole country keeping fit. Even the future King! He first became an Instagram sensation thanks to his Body Coach plan and ‘Lean in 15’ recipes. Lockdown saw him transform from social media influencer to household name, thanks to his daily workout sessions for children, called PE With Joe, and he now has more than four million followers. His reach was so wide, he was awarded an MBE for his services – and the royal seal of approval doesn’t stop there.
Shein 2011: “The doctors told me I'd almost bled to death and further tests revealed I had a blood clotting problem, the female form of haemophilia."
Unfortunately, Rosie also found out she had Behcet's disease six years later. The inflammatory disease left her bed-bound for almost two years before the doctors diagnosed her and put her on immuno-suppressants.
"I have liver function and blood tests every three months. It's highly likely I'll die before Scott, but I'm coming to terms with that," Rosie said to the Mirror, referring to her then TV director husband Scott Bunce, who she married in 2004 but divorced seven years later.
"It's worth it not to go back to the hell I was in for those two years.
"Untreated, Behcet’s can affect your lungs, heart and blood vessels, so without the immuno-suppressants I might not be here now."

Rosie has also been affected by her mental health over the years, once confessing that she had had a nervous breakdown also while filming the hit BBC series.
She revealed on Lorraine previously that there was one point when she thought her family would be “better off” without her,, explaining: “I think it’s a mixture of lots of things.
“A combination of issues with my family and some tough issues at work, and I’ve been there for a long time and it’s extremely long hours. And as you know there’s a lot of working mothers. You find you split yourself so much that you give yourself nothing.
Rosie went on to say that she felt as though she had “nothing left” for herself, remarking: “Everybody else got a 100 per cent. Everybody comes before me, and I’m ok with that. But as long as I have a moment to myself.”

She continued: ““I just became very depressed and was suffering from depersonalisation.”
And added: “I didn’t know who I was, and when you start to think about leaving your family…
“I walked out the house in pyjamas and no shoes and walked to a friend’s house three miles away and knocked on her door in the middle of the night.
“When you get to that point you go, ‘I need help’. I felt like my family would be better off without me.”
Rosie is now married to Ben Stacey, with the pair tying the knot in Vegas in 2013. Then the pair had their daughter Beau two years later.
The actor said at the time that the show’s producers did their best to support her, commenting: “It was difficult for them because it literally happened on set.
"And I went, ‘I have to see my doctor, I have to see my doctor,’ and I left set and I called my doctor straight away and he signed me off instantly.
“I started therapy that week, and I did intensive therapy for about a month before I was ready to come back to work.”
