    Excuse me here as I am not a soap buff, but this woman its amazing how she is still alive, let alone acting.:eek:

    She must be like at least 90, and smokes like a chimney.

    How does she do it..........

    You're talking about Dot Cotton played by June Brown. She's around since day one I'd say (you might say since the year 'dot' - geddit??? :D)

    Anyway, she's a brilliant actress and a great character too.

    I'd say she's a smoker in reality too judging by the wrinkles. How is she still alive - I don't know!
