Luisa Bradshaw-White
YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW...If she hadn't been an actress, Luisa could always have been a kitchen hand. When she got the part of Maria she washed dishes at a London restaurant - and carried on doing do despite being on TV! But Luisa always wanted to act - she started out in drama festivals at 12.

LOOKING BACK... Grange Hill was great fun, says Luisa. "I went in at 14 as a sort of glorified extra, with just a few lines and they wrote me in to the main cast", she told the Daily Mirror.
