June Brown Discovers Tragic Past On Bbc Show
The actress discovered that her great-great-great-great-grandmother Rachel, who lived in Netherlands, faced religious prejudice. She was also left alone to raise four children after her husband and son left the country to find work in London. Brown, whose second daughter died 16 days after she was born, said, "I feel an affinity with her partly because I lost one child, my mother lost two children and Rachel lost all of hers in the end". Rachel's four children all died young and she never found out what happened to her loved ones in London. Brown, whose first husband committed suicide and whose second husband died in 2003, said, "She was widowed and I'm twice widowed".
One of the longest-running characters in Eastenders, June Brown has played 'Dot' for over 20 years. She previously had small roles on Coronation Street, Minder, and The Bill.
