Mrs Susan Kennedy - The Queen of Ramsay Street!

Jackie Woodburne (Neighbours, Susan Kennedy) is such a fantastic and stunning actress and its been great to see her character evolve over the last 14 years.

The writers have not always been faithful to all the characters - choping and changing their characters persoanility to suit the plot. (Toadie, Paul Robinson and Harold Bishop spring to mind) but Susan's character has naturally evolved over the years - from being the goodie-goodie mumsy character at the start, a lady who wouldn't say boo to a goose, to the strong independent character she became after her first breakup with Karl.

Recently we saw elements of the old vunerable Susan and the head strong Susan being played out as she faces her insecurities again. Jackie's character is probably the most believable one in the whole of Neighbours history and I'm looking forward to the very challenging storylines she has coming up over the next six months which will see the 'permanent' return of our old favourite...

We love you Queen Susan Kennedy! Shocked

Did anyone see the sketch Neighbours did for Eastenders' 30th? The way that she played a very confused Susan surrounded by cast members impersonating Easties characters was truly excellent and a lovely tribute.
