SHE’S is known for her role as shy girl Amber, a resident of the vacant lot in The Tracy Beaker Story.
But Alicia Hooper’s 18 years is unrecognizable – and has chosen a slightly different career.
According to Alicia’s 35-year-old Instagram bio, she is a “professional singer and professional vocal coach”.
She’s also proud of her daughter Alba-Rae’s mother.
But Alicia looks back fondly on her time as Amber. This week, she shared a series of snaps of herself and Tracy actress Dani Harmer on the set of the CBBC show.
One of the snapshots features Amber with The Cheeky Girls, and Dani comments: “The Cheeky Girls 🤣! Why don’t I know what they’re doing there 🤣🙈xxx.”
Alicia replied, “That’s the episode kids need and guess they were a big deal at the time 😂🤷🏼♀️.”
Last year, Dani, 32, was back in the My Mum Tracy Beaker reboot, and to celebrate Alicia posted another collection of offensive photos.
She wrote: “So when the new Tracy Beaker reboot came out yesterday, this week was overloaded with pure nostalgia!
“I will be forever grateful for the time I spent on this wonderful show and the lovely people I met along the way.
“Thank you everyone for your continued support and love for the brilliant and talented @missdanijharmer and @monnie_05 in the new series.
You both are awesome! “
Alicia also shared about her favorite moments on the show, telling Radio Times: “Growing up, The Tracy Beaker Story was really my favorite book, so being invited to star in the series Television is a dream come true.
“I was 15 when I joined the cast and filmed all of the second series during the summer break.
“I think one of my favorite moments in the series is when they all have to get a job.
“It’s like they’ve got a glimpse of real-world life and it’s pure comedy to see them all as individuals trying to navigate what they’re going to do to try to make money. !”
