Something I wondered about Alicia.

Sometime last year, there was a scene in the pub where there were comments made about her cleavage!

Subsquently the actress went on maternity leave, but looking back, maybe her pregnancy was making her cleavage more noticeable than normal, so something was written in!

Must admit I hadnt noticed her cleavage till then anyway.

If you want to look at some clevage check out the link I posted on the previous page, you'll never look at Edna in the same light again!

Ladies of a certain age always wear hats...my Mum (now in her late nineties) wouldnt be seen dead outside the house without a hat.

Even as the paramedics were carrying her off to hospital with a bout of pneumonia, she insisted on a hat for the trip to the ambulance!

The actress uses breast paddings, they are not her real breasts.

Enda isn't the only soap actress to wear a hat all the time (well, almost).

Anyone remember the Scottish soap opera 'Take The High Road'? It had a character called Mrs Mack who, like Edna, wore hats on all the time (almost) except I remember she went hatless in a few episodes if my memory serves me right.

Unlike Enda who seems to wear the same hat, Mrs Mack wore many different hats - all of them awful as you'll see one example at 7:30 here:

Kat Moon and her skirts and stilettos and her slaps
Viv Hope and her mini skirts shoulder pads and high heels and she slapped other charactors a lot like Kat

Viv in Emmerdale and Kat in Eastenders are quite a like

Edna also had her hat off for Seth's wake in the Woolpack... apparantly he had insisted that no hats would be worn for it!

Hasn't Shirley got really long hair in real life, hence why she wears the hat? If she is to be filmed without it, she will most probably be wearing a wig

I always thought Edna was like a nicer, kinder version of Mrs Mack. Mrs M was a horror.

I read somewhere that the actress used to get sent hats from High Road fans so thats why she had so many.

Maybe wearing a hat has an ageing effect. Both Edna and Mrs Mack (in the clip above) look more youthful without the hats. I've always thought that Edna as a character was older than Shirley Stelfox, and I know that Gwynneth Guthrie, who played Mrs Mack, is still alive, so maybe she was younger than the character, and they had to 'age her up.'

Edna needs to keep her hat on so that she can be identified when they eventually find her skeleton. She has been unconscious in her cottage for ages, and nobody in the village has noticed. She is my favourite character in EM.
