Roo Stewart - Justine Clarke & Georgie Parker


Recommended Posts

would love to see Alf's daughter, Roo come back to the Bay. She has a lot of ties to the bay at the moment being Martha's mother and used to get on very well with Morag. She is currently living in New York, working as a secretary but used to have an evil streak to her, getting pregnant with Brett Macklin's child but tricking Frank into believing Martha was his. She later put her up for adoption but martha found her years later and spent time with her in New York. Justine Clarke was a great actress. Would be nice to see her back.

I think we've got Georgie for the long haul as she's been here for six years!.

Roo was Number 6 on Digital Spy's recent article 'Top 10 most sidelined soap characters', how do people feel about this? I agree, Georgie's a great actor and I feel she has the potential to really sin

I doubt Georgie Parker comes cheap, so it amazes me that they just get her to stand behind a counter and take orders for months on end.

^ Yes, I agree. Roo was a great character. For someone so straight it's amazing how Alf brought up to such "evil" (although not totally evil) children in Roo and Duncan.

What was interesting about Roo was that she was a vindictive, attention seeking character and those roles are only ever given over to guest roles since. To have a permanent character in that role was great, although we didn't fully understand that at the time of course. As the years have passed we have seen how characters like Roo usually just get a 6 week slot.

I'd love to see Roo back. It has been so long since she was in the show, and so few people would remember her, it would give the writers freedom to do almost anything with her. I could see her as a Jazz/Amanda trouble-maker type. They could write Barfa out and replace her with Roo to keep a Stewart in the Bay.

The thing is people remember the first few months where she was against Ailsa and Bobby and then tricked Frank into marrying her, by telling him he was the father of her child. By the end of the year and during 1989, Roo had become more the victim.

There is still so much unfinished business with Roo though and it's a crime she hasn't been back particularly since her dad, and now, her daughter live there. I doubt Justine Clark would ever return since she seems busy in theater and Hollywood but I am not a fan of recasts!

On a side note, I think they should consider bringing Quin back into the picture and sort that storyline out because her initial introduction was so fast and didnt have much of a long term impact on Alf at all.

Wow...this thread has really little interest...surprising for a current character. :huh:

The reason I wanted to post here.....it is just me or does anyone else think that Roo is seen with alcohol in practically every scene!?

Its been bugging me for a while. She always seen bringing wine home, opening bottles, having a beer etc, etc.....tonight it was champagne.

I dont know...maybe its just to convey her former party girl lifestyle or something, at least it doesnt seem to be linked to anything else.

Anyway...just something I noticed and wanted to share....

You can go back to ignoring this thread now! :ph34r::wink:
