Loudmouth Annette made an unlikely alliance with Fay Lucas in the 1980s. Nadia Chambers shared her characters's fashion sense...
DOB: 13 January 1968


ADVERTISING: TV commercial for toasters (prior to Grange Hill - details unavailable). Also modelling for Marks and Spencer

TV: Annette Firman in GRANGE HILL (BBC 1982-1985); Agnes in LITTLE DORRIT (1988); Miss Anne de Brough in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (BBC 1995); THE BILL (Thames 1999)

FAMILY: She's the baby of her family; having an older brother, Karl, and two big sisters, Kim and Tania.

HOBBIES: As a teenager Nadia loved shopping - very Annette! And if she had time, she'd pop into Pineapple studios for a dance.

YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW... Hard to imagine, but Nadia actually comes from Wales! She moved to London to go to stage school in 1981. Nadia and Annette were alike in that they liked to dress individually. "I wear a lot of old-fashioned styles, everyone thinks I'm funny because I refuse to follow trends," she said in the 1985 GH annual.

AND WHERE IS SHE NOW? Still acting. Most recently seen in "The Bill" a couple of years ago, and still very recognisable in her current Spotlight photo.
