Release Day Fun with Annalisa Crawford

Annalisa Crawford is here to celebrate the release of her new book, Our Beautiful Child!

For no reason whatsoever, Annalisa thought it would be fun to answer some of the questions that Jackie magazine asked the stars of the day (the example she's found is from 1984 – and the victim was Johnny Marr from The Smiths). She will be answering one question on each of the random blogs taking part!

Question: If you could be a character in any TV soap, who would you choose?

Annalisa's answer: I haven’t watched soaps for years, so I’m going to have to say Charlene from Neighbours, because she’s the only character I can remember!

And my answer:

Hmm, right now I think I'd quite like to be just about any character in Hollyoaks, so I can hang out with talented and gorgeous guys such as Danny Mac, Greg Wood and Ayden Callaghan!



Our Beautiful Child is available right now!  

“The Boathouse collects misfits. Strange solitary creatures that yearn for contact with the outside world, but not too much. They sit, glass in hand, either staring at the table in front of them, or at some distant point on the horizon.” 

… so says the narrator of Our Beautiful Child. And he’s been around long enough to know.

People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seek sanctuary in the 18th century pub, The Boathouse; but in fact, that’s where their troubles begin.

Ella finds love, a moment too late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray, who threatens to ruin everything.

Three women. Three stories. One pub.

  3. Congratulations, Annalisa! I wouldn't want to be a character in a soap opera because bad things always happen to them.

    1. I know - they definitely have more than their fair share of bad luck, don't they?

    1. You must know JR, at the very least? Although I'm not sure anyone would want to be him :-D

  7. Jackie magazine - now there's a blast from my past! Interesting question I would probably say Charlene too (I loved Neighbours at that time) cause she got to snog Jason Donovan afterall! She was a mechanic in the programme, don't think I could have done that though!

    Congrats Annalisa :)

  8. Congratulations, Annalisa! That's a tough question! Especially if you don't watch soaps! Pretty cool book promo though. I like the idea of one question per blog taken from an interview years ago. Very cool! :)
