cleawaters, according to the IMDB Keeley would have been 13 or 14 in 1991 so you must have the year of the ad wrong.I don't think she was ever a child actress and, in any case, they wouldn't use a young girl for a Clearasil ad would they?

thanks for your reply...

IMDB in fact has keeley's birth year wrong, she was born in 1976... she stated herself in an article that she was 15 when she did the advert.

she wasn't a child actress of such, but she did go to Sylvia Young's, and they regularly use their students in various roles.

plus with her height she rarely looked her young age!

cleawaters, I'm obviously getting old...I thought there was something familiar about Clearasil. I've been using it every day for the past 31 years against pressure sores (I'm a paraplegic)! Its very good for toughening the skin against breakdown as well as cleaning up acne/spots etc. Therefore, it makes perfect sense for it to be advertised by a person of any age. I was mistakenly assuming it was a product women used to keep their faces looking young..ie why should a young girl be used in the ad? ( I thought).

firstly - engineer, nope from what i know keeley has never appeared in grange hill, the actress you're thinking of would either be:

- jessica samuels, played by sara sugarman (in 1979)
- jessica arnold, played by amy phillips (between 1994-1998)

so can anyone else help me with tracking down this advert? like i said it would have been sometime in 1991 (maybe as late as 92, unlikely earlier than 91) and was for clearasil spot cream.
