One lucky Scream Management youngster has swapped her real-life Cheshire address for the rather accident-prone and dramatic fictional Cheshire village of Hollyoaks. Ruby O'Donnell, 13, plays the role of Peri Lomax - and is described as the sole voice of reason within her dysfunctional family, someone who is far wiser than her youthful appearance might suggest.
"This is a fabulous opportunity for Ruby," explains Jess, senior kids agent at Scream. "It's a recurring role from Ruby, on one of the UK's highest-rating soaps. And as we know, soaps are a great platform for youngsters to learn 'on the job' and progress on to other projects as an adults. Well done, Ruby!"
