Claire van der Boom is a Logie Award winning Australian film and television actress of Dutch ancestry. Internationally, she is best known for her appearance as Stella in the third episode of the HBO miniseries The Pacific, and her recurring role playing the ex-wife of Det. Danny Williams in the 2010 remake of Hawaii Five-0.


Van der Boom was born in Broome, Western Australia. She attended Presbyterian Ladies' College in Perth, where she studied drama, graduating in 1999. She also graduated from Sydney's National Institute of Dramatic Art in 2005. She is of Dutch descent.

 Acting career
Following graduation, van der Boom appeared in the Australian TV series Love My Way and East West 101. Her first major role in a feature film was in The Square, which was directed by Nash Edgerton and screened at the Sydney Film Festival in June 2008.

She had a prominent female role in the Steven Spielberg-produced mini-series The Pacific. This 10-part series, which is a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Band of Brothers, was largely filmed in Australia and was released internationally in March 2010.

In 2008 Van der Boom appeared on Australian TV as Grace Barry in Channel 10's police drama Rush, but her character was killed off in episode 11, which aired 11 November 2008. Josef Ber's character, Sergeant Dominic "Dom" Wales, was originally scripted to be killed off. However, during production of the first season, Van der Boom had her US working visa approved for which she had forgotten she had applied. The visa was a "Residency Visa", which required her to move to the US. She stars in the 2010 released psychological thriller Red Hill, which is directed by Patrick Hughes.

In 2010 she portrayed Sister Berenice Twohill in the telemovie Sisters of War, directed by Brendan Maher in which she won a Logie Award for Most Outstanding Actress in 2011. And in 2011 she starred in Roland Joffé's epic drama Singularity.

She portrays the ex-wife of Danny Williams in the new Hawaii Five-0 series.
