She stole many hearts as Leah not long ago. But Jessica Staveley-Taylor has another talent which could win her even more fans...
Jessica Staveley-Taylor DOB: 16 December 1986

HEIGHT: 5ft 1in

EYES: Brown

THEATRE: Nan in WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND; SOUTH PACIFIC; OUR DAY OUT (All St. James Theatre)

TV: CLOSING NUMBERS (Channel 4 1993); Leah Stewart in GRANGE HILL (BBC 2001)

STRANGE BUT TRUE: Jessica is actually younger than her Grange Hill character! She played a Year 12 pupil when she hadn't finished Year 11.

YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW... Jessica is an excellent singer, according to Children's Spotlight. Well, she does look like Andrea Corr. So come on Jess, serenade us please!

FAMILY: Grange Hill runs in Jessica's family! Her older sister Emily appeared in the show in the mid-1990s, her younger sis Camilla is also an actress. A future GH star perhaps?

WHERE IS SHE NOW? Jessica is now in Liverpool studying music, and is a keen song writer. She has given up acting.
