Donnaleigh Bailey - Career


Bailey appeared as Michelle Corrigan in the BBC's soap opera Doctors. Bailey revealed on her BBC profile for Doctors that when she was shopping with co-star Martha Howe-Douglas who played Donna Parmar, the two were stopped by a man who showed them a "terrible" cut on his arm. Bailey said, that the man "wouldn't believe that they didn't work in a surgery". This happened in another instance, this time with co-star Diane Keen, "One day Diane and I were going for lunch and saw a cyclist knocked off his bike. We ran towards him to see if we could help, but when we got to him I said, ‘What can we do?’. I thought, ‘This is serious, we can’t pretend’. So I just rang for an ambulance. I used to go out in my nurse’s uniform to Sainsbury’s in Selly Oak to buy my lunch, then I realised I had to stop doing that in case there was a problem and they expected me to come to someone’s aid". In 2010, Bailey announced her decision to leave Doctors. Of this decision she said, "It was so sad, and filming the last episode was awful. I sobbed from the first scene of the day to the very end! And my castmates were in tears too. We all cried and then we all got drunk, it was an emotionally draining day. It was a difficult decision to leave all my friends and a great series, especially as I don’t have any other work to go to yet, but I want to take a risk".

Bailey has appeared in episodes of Crossroads, Holby City and Dangerfield, which was her first television role. Donnaleigh's stage credits are the role of Leah in Beautiful Thing, Nikki in Redundant and Colleen in Martha Loves Michael.

Famous quotes containing the word career:

    “Never hug and kiss your children! Mother love may make your children’s infancy unhappy and prevent them from pursuing a career or getting married!” That’s total hogwash, of course. But it shows on extreme example of what state-of-the-art “scientific” parenting was supposed to be in early twentieth-century America. After all, that was the heyday of efficiency experts, time-and-motion studies, and the like.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    I seemed intent on making it as difficult for myself as possible to pursue my “male” career goal. I not only procrastinated endlessly, submitting my medical school application at the very last minute, but continued to crave a conventional female role even as I moved ahead with my “male” pursuits.
    Margaret S. Mahler (1897–1985)
