Indiana Rose Evans (born 27 July 1990) is an Australian actress and singer-songwriter, best known for her roles in Home and Away as Matilda Hunter, H2O: Just Add Water as Bella Hartley, and Blue Lagoon: The Awakening as Emmaline Robinson.

Evans had an interest in performing since the age of five, when she would perform for family and friends. At the age of seven, Evans’ parents enrolled her into dance lessons, which started with ballet and then evolved to jazz and tap.

Before working on Home and Away, Evans started high school at Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, but left after two weeks to focus on her acting career. She then took up a correspondence course until she turned 15.

Evans made her acting debut in the 2003 Australian medical drama All Saints. She then landed the main role in an American campaign for Kool-Aid. That same year, Evans had a recurring role on the Nine Network children’s series Snobs, which centres on two unlikely friends from two different worlds. The series only lasted one season. Evans has since appeared in other shows such as Comedy Inc., Cops L.A.C., and The Strip.

Following Snobs, Evans joined the cast of the long-running Seven Network soap opera Home and Away. She portrayed Matilda Hunter, a privileged teenage girl who is forced to move to the Summer Bay Caravan Park. Evans was nominated for a Logie Award and an Inside Soap Award for the role.

In 2009, Evans starred in the Network Ten television film A Model Daughter: The Killing of Caroline Byrne. That same year, Evans replaced Claire Holt as one of the three leads on the Network Ten Children television series H2O: Just Add Water.

In August 2010, Evans made her feature-film debut in the Australian disaster film Arctic Blast, playing the character Naomi Tate.

In February 2012, Evans signed on to play the female lead role in the 2012 Lifetime television film Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, alongside fellow Australian actor Brenton Thwaites, who also appeared on Home and Away.

In February 2014, Evans joined the cast of the U.S. television drama Secrets and Lies. The series airs on ABC and is based on the Australian series of the same name, which first aired in March 2014.
