Personal Quote:

I don't think actors should get themselves on any political platform, I really don't. Some of us are intelligent enough, but I don't mean because of that. Because we have such an influence, wrong sort of influence. And that's why I don't really agree with it. See more »

Trivia:

As of 2020 she is the longest serving actress on the history of EastEnders (1985), having played the character Dot Branning for a total of 31 years (initially from 1985 until 1993 and then from 1997 until 2020). See more »
