18 year old Adele - wild child Kelly in Emmerdale - is a feisty young woman who is not afraid to speak her own mind. "I've got a quite a fierce temper and I won't be pushed around." she says. "It doesn't take much to get me angry but It's all over very quickly. I'm just a passionate person."
|Adele goes back to her parents' home in Croydon, Surrey, most weekends. Adele, untill recently shared a flat with co-star Sheree Murphy in Leeds. The former schoolmates are the best of friends. Adele says: "I'm an only child and Sheree has four brothers. So we're like the sisters we both never had.|
|Adele was only 12 when she landed the role of Kelly in Emmerdale but already had a long screen career behind her. She joined Peggy O'Farrell's Dance School in East Ham, London, at the age of five. 'I was an active child,' says Adele. 'My mum needed to find things to entertain me.' It was while training there in dance and drama that the future Emmerdale 'babe' was spotted by a casting director and landed a role in the pantomime Babes in the Wood - as one of the two Babes - at the London Palladium in 1985, alongside stars such as Barbara Windsor and John Inman.|
|Set on a career in acting, Adele joined the Sylvia Young Theatre School and appeared in television commercials, before making her screen acting debut at the age of seven as Squeak in Doctor Who, alongside Sylvester McCoy as the Time Lord and Sophie Aldred as Ace. Her role, that of a girl whose brother turned into a cat, called on her to wear yellow contact lenses.|
|Adele subsequently acted in Mr Majeika, the children's series starring Stanley Baxter, playing Fenella Fudd, a girl with a lisp who helped to catch robbers, and took two roles in The Bill - as the daughter of a rapist and a girl who was shot by her brother with a gun he had found. She also played the daughter of a man whom corrupt solicitors tried to kill in director Don Leaver's film The Chain. 'Every role I take, I seem to end up crying,' muses Adele.|
|Shortly before landing the part of Kelly in Emmerdale, Adele played Beth, the daughter of lan Beale's girlfriend Ronnie, in EastEnders. The arrival of Adele and the other actors and actresses playing the Windsor family was a culture shock for the Emmerdale cast. 'We were all Londoners in a northern village,' she says 'I spoke quite fast and people couldn't understand what I was saying but, after a while, people got used to all of us.'|
Former Emmerdale actress Adele Silva has told how she was hit over the head by a robber who stole her car.
She was left cut and bruised after she was dragged along the road as she tried to stop the thief driving off in her silver Peugeot 205 convertible.
Adele, who played man-eater Kelly Glover in the ITV soap, was bumped from behind as she drove home.
The other driver pulled his car in front of hers and told her to get out to look at the damage. A second man hit her over the head, snatched her keys and drove off.
Adele said: "I tried to jump on his lap and take control of the steering wheel.
"I know it was probably a very foolish thing to do but I wasn't thinking."
She was dragged along the road and the thief almost hit an on-coming car in Croydon, South London, on Friday night, reports the Daily Mirror.
