Ellie Oswald by Lucy Crewe

1981: Dave Oswald (Michael Dixon) was saved from being hit by a car by Eleanor “Ellie” Ravenwood (Nicola Sian). The leaf that had smacked into his face became a symbol of their chance meeting, and soon, after marriage, Clara was born.

Ellie died on this day in 2005, though the cause is unknown.
