Said to be raised in Edenbridge, Kent, England as the daughter of a lawyer who was not happy about her relationship with Bowie.
Hermione was the inspiration for number of Bowie verses and songs including "Letter to Hermione". However she denies that she is "the girl with the mousy hair" in Life on Mars. Following Bowie's death she said: ‘I have not got mousy hair and I have never had mousy hair. I am a redhead — and that’s what made David adopt his red hair.’
