The 56-year-old actress' soap alter ego Brenda Walker is to be diagnosed with a lesion on the brain, and as well as worrying about what it meant for her future on the ITV show, Lesley was concerned about the responsibility she has to portray the disease accurately. She said: ''The first thing I asked was, 'Does she die?' - I didn't know if I was still in a job or not.
