Why Eastenders Keeps Actress June Brown Alive

By James Mills, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International

The actress June Brown who has played Dot Cotton in the British soap opera Eastenders since 1985 and turns 90 this month, has revealed that her acting role is keeping her alive. She shared this on Radio 4's Desert Island's Discs this weekend and explained how she continues to have the energy to act:

"I haven't really got very much now but I find when I get on set, my energy comes. It's like people can go on stage and break an ankle and they don't notice till they come off. I can be feeling like death warmed up when I come in, and then I'm alive. It keeps me alive."

She also went on to explain how important she feels keeping active is for her and what causes many people to get sick as they get older.

"I think that's why a lot of people are very lonely and get ill when they're older, because I think loneliness and having no motivation, nothing to work towards... I think it kills you."

What June Brown helps us to appreciate is the importance of having meaning and purpose in our lives, regardless of how long we've lived. Here's more about her interview on the BBC site.
