The actress plays Janeece Bryant, student turned school secretary, in the drama series. Healey joined the cast in 2006 and also played her character in the spin-off series Waterloo Road Reunited. However, it seems Janeeces’ days as secretary are numbered as the actress promises an ‘explosive’ exit.
“I can promise fans my exit will be unmissable… but my lips are sealed!” – Chelsee Healey.
The actress won much praise for her participation in the most recent series of Strictly Come Dancing. Healey made it through to the grand final and came second in the competition with the favourite Harry Judd being crowned the Strictly king.
Waterloo Road is moving homes to Scotland, from Rochdale where it has previously been filmed, as part of the BBC‘s commitment to producing more drama outside of London and in the regions. The move has not been without its critics but has seen the drama renewed for a further 50 episodes.
