On screen Joanna was a bitchy, alcoholic man-eater. But if you wrote to Fiona Wade, she was a much nicer girl!
Fiona Wade

DOB: 20 March 1979

EYES: Brown

TV: Extra in GRANGE HILL (1995); Joanna Day in GRANGE HILL (BBC 1996-1998); Studio audience in THE TIME...THE PLACE (1997); Anya Vicenze in 24:SEVEN (Granada 2001-2002); Decca Taylor in DOCTORS (BBC 2004); Rowan Clayton in WHERE THE HEART IS (ITV 2006); WATERLOO ROAD (2008)

THEATRE: Princess Anjuli in THE FAR PAVILIONS (2005); CINDERELLA; MISS SAIGON; Princess Jasmine in ALADDIN; Juliet in ROMEO AND JULIET;

YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW... Fiona is actually a singer by trade, and she left Grange Hill to star in the West End musical Miss Saigon. She says singing is her life and hopes to record an album.

POINT OF INTEREST: Fiona says she is nothing like Joanna in real life. Unlike her alcoholic screen persona she doesn't even drink! However, we did hear her sing in Series 21 Ep 4, during the Karaoke night.

WHERE IS SHE NOW? After touring with the musical Miss Saigon in Malmo, Sweden, Fiona returned to deepest Huddersfield for a role in ITV's long-running drama Where The Heart Is. Sadly, the show has just been axed by ITV...
