And, as you say, our actors act. In most cases, their looks are totally incidental. I couldn't imagine a Vera ever being cast in an American soap, could you?!!!
No we are not up to date. We are about six months behind you. I know that because my husband goes to visit his family in England each year and he watched it last time and said we are so far behind, by about six months. We are at the point now where Sarah is fooling around with Jason
Your right about Vera, you would never see a woman like her on a soap here. No idea why American soaps are so **** bent on having everyone look and dress perfect, and all have the best jobs
To me, your soaps are so much more realistic.
