Clare Buckfield

STRANGE BUT TRUE: Clare originally auditioned for the part of Natalie Stevens in Grange Hill, but lost out to her sister (who incidentally was chasing the part of Chrissy Mainwaring). However, perseverence paid off as Clare won the role of Natasha Stevens in 1992. What's more, both Clare and Julie competed for the recast of Jenny Porter in 2point4 CHILDREN!

DON'T MENTION... Clare's ex-boyfriend Dec Donnelly (yes, he who began his career in Grange Hill's main rival - that show about a Geordie youth club). Clare, how could you!
