Later her repertoire expanded to include a maiden in a BBC production of Merlin and a vampire-fighting student in ITV show Demons. Although committed to an acting career Holliday was determined to finish her education. Juggling a hectic filming schedule for Where The Heart Is with her studies, she passed her A Levels in 2006.
