    Bettles was recruited into acting at the age of eight by Sylvia Young of the Sylvia Young Theatre School.[1] As a child, Bettles appeared in various television advertisements, which included a "Public Information Film" for the Green Cross Code with Bob Carolgees in 1981.[2]
    She is known for her childhood role in the Children's BBC drama, Grange Hill. Bettles played the prominent character Fay Lucas between 1982 and 1987, who was most notable for having an affair with one of her teachers, Mr King (David Straun). Bettles was one of various Grange Hill actors to feature in the UK's Just Say No anti-drug campaign. The cast recorded a song (also entitled "Just Say No"), which was released as a single, and reached number 5 in April 1986.[3] Bettles was also featured on a special music album released by the Grange Hill cast, with songs written by Steve Wright, who composed the theme tune for Channel 4's Brookside.[4] Bettles sang a solo track entitled "School Love", which was based on her character's doomed relationship with Mr. King.[5] In 2005, Bettles was reunited with some of her former Grange Hill castmates in Justin Lee Collins's Channel 4 documentary, Bring Back...Grange Hill, which saw them perform their top ten hit, Just Say No, in front of an audience at the Hammersmith Palais.[6]
    Aside from her Grange Hill music projects, Bettles also sang on the charity single "Let It Be", released by Ferry Aid in 1987 to raise money for victims of the Zeebrugge ferry disaster.[5] In 1988 Bettles appeared in a spin-off of the popular BBC soap opera, EastEnders. The spin-off, entitled CivvyStreet, was set during the second world war, and looked back on the early life of some of EastEnders' senior residents. Bettles played a young Ethel Skinner.[7] Among Bettles' other credits are: ITV's police drama The Bill (1988) (credited as 'Alison Beetles'); No Strings (1989); Closing Numbers (1993); Ostatni Accord (1994) and London's Burning (2001).

    Bettles also featured in a toy advert circa 1981 just before she was in GH - cannot remember what the product was called, something like "Trick Stick" or something (ring any bells in the Toys part of the forum, perhaps?)- it was a yo-yo type product, and it was probably seen during Tiswas and Watch It! ad breaks. It was on YouTube a few years ago, and might still be there if you look in the right place.

    I have mentioned this before, but David Straun who played Fay's b̶o̶y̶f̶r̶i̶e̶n̶d forum tutor Peter King appeared in a Woolworths advert circa 1983, getting excited about Cadbury's Dairy Milk being only 15p - the previous product being promoted in the advert was for some kitchen towels that happened to be called "Fay", ironically enough! I mentioned it in the GH thread over a year ago.

    By 1985 she looked really angelic in a "Nicole-Franklin-out-of-Home-and-Away" sort of way (white knee socks not included...)

    Peter King was Fay's Maths teacher rather than form tutor, but you get my drift.
