Newton explained at a TED conference that from an early age she knew she was different, ”From about the age of 5, I was aware that I didn’t fit. I was the black, atheist kid in the all-white, Catholic school run by nuns. I was an anomaly.” So she enrolled into London’s Art Educational School where she studied modern dance. After a serious back injury, Newton had to stop dancing.

Newton began auditioning for films. She landed her first role in John Duigan’s Flirting (1991). After the success of Flirting, Newton moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting further.
