Powell stars in the Freeform series Siren playing Ryn, a feral mermaid who comes to a small coastal village in search of her sister. Preparing for the role, Powell studied legends of mermaids and sea creatures. To develop ideas for the mermaid’s body language, Powell worked from videos of marine and other predators. For the mermaid’s newly learned speech, Powell was inspired by the accent of Icelandic singer Björk.
In 2016, she appeared in Game of Thrones as Bianca, a young actress plotting to murder her rival.
Powell is the daughter of Belgian pharmacologist Rudi Pauwels and clinical researcher Carine Claeys, who in 1994 were two of the co-founders of the biotech company Tibotec. She was born in Leuven and lived in Mechelen until she was fourteen years old. After a short stay in Switzerland, she moved to England, but she has Belgian citizenship and considers Belgium her home.
She attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, graduating in 2011 with a BA degree in acting.
