Beckinsale was born in Chiswick, London, England.

She is the only child of actors Richard Beckinsale and Judy Loe.[4] She has an older paternal half-sister, actress Samantha Beckinsale, but they have not had regular contact.[4] Her father was of one quarter Burmese descent.[5] She made her first television appearance at the age of four, in an episode of This is Your Life dedicated to her father.[6][7] When she was five years old, her 31-year-old father died suddenly of a heart attack. Beckinsale was deeply traumatised by the loss and “started expecting bad things to happen.”[8][4] Her widowed mother moved in with director Roy Battersby when Beckinsale was nine and she was brought up alongside his four sons and daughter.[9] She has a close relationship with her step-father,[4] who was a member of the Workers Revolutionary Party during her childhood.[10] Beckinsale helped to sell The News Line, a Trotskyist newspaper, as a child and has said the household phone was tapped following Battersby’s blacklisting by the BBC.[10] Family friends included Ken Loach and Vanessa Redgrave.[10]Beckinsale was educated at Godolphin and Latymer School, an independent school for girls in HammersmithWest London and was involved with the Orange Tree Youth Theatre.[11] She is a twice winner of the WH Smith Young Writers Award for both fiction and poetry.[12] She has described herself as a “late bloomer”: “All of my friends were kissing boys and drinking cider way before me. I found it really depressing that we weren’t making camp fires and everyone was doing grown-up stuff.”[13] “I loathed being a teenager.”[14] She had a nervous breakdown and developed anorexia at the age of 15 and underwent Freudian psychoanalysis for four years. Beckinsale read French and Russian literature at New CollegeOxford, and was later described by a contemporary, journalist Victoria Coren Mitchell, as “whip-clever, slightly nuts, and very charming”.[15] She was involved with the Oxford University Dramatic Society, most notably being directed by fellow student Tom Hooper in a production of A View from the Bridge at the Oxford Playhouse.[16] As a Modern Languages student, she was required to spend her third year abroad, and studied in Paris. She then decided to quit university to concentrate on her burgeoning acting career: “It was getting to the point where I wasn’t enjoying either thing enough because both were very high pressure.”[4]
