The Alice: characters

Roxane Wilson as Ellie Delaney

Ellie is a bit of a firecracker. She probably should have got out of The Alice when she was young. But she didn't.

She's also insightful, empathetic and grounded — people seem to gravitate to her. In conversation she has that rare ability to make you feel like you're the only person in the room.

Ellie doesn't suffer fools and recently the biggest fool has been her husband, Hugh. His affair was hurtful, but now that they've separated Ellie has discovered she has more inner strength than she gave herself credit for. She's managing just fine without him — in fact she's starting to flourish.

Sexy and self-aware, Ellie is a lot more than Toby's mother and Hugh's wife. Her work as a tour guide has always been rewarding but now her sculpture is taking off as well — thanks in no small part to her affair with Matt. Funny how an appreciative younger man can unleash one's creativity… It seems the future is full of possibilities.
