Birth of Ruby O’donnell
18 years ago
She’s grown up in the public eye, having notched up around 300 episodes of Hollyoaks since joining the cast playing Peri Lomax in October 2013. Ruby O’donnell, who was born in 2000 in Warrington, celebrates her 18th birthday on October 26th. In true soap style, Ruby’s character Peri has packed several lives worth of drama into five short years, highlights including discovering that her sister was her biological mother, being told she had a brain tumour, teen motherhood, being trapped in an underground bunker and, in a distinctly Brookside-ish turn of events, embarking on a lesbian relationship.
