Claudia Black was born on October 11, 1972 (because she is very secretive about her personal life, her actual year of birth is still not officially certain), in Sydney, Australia. She has lived most of her adult life abroad, opting to reside in New Zealand and London, England, for extended periods of time.

As an accomplished stage actress, Claudia has starred in many roles with various stage productions, as well as with the Belvoir Street Theatre, a renowned Australian acting troupe. In 1990, Claudia's turn as Portia in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice earned her a nomination in the Globe Shakespeare Competition; she made it to the finals.

The bulk of her early onscreen career took place in Australian television productions. Early appearances include bit parts in G.P. (1993), Police Rescue (1993) and the miniseries Seven Deadly Sins (1993). She achieved notoriety in Australia by the mid-1990s, thanks to roles in A Country Practice (1994) and City Life (1996).
