You’d probably say she’s had a life from hell both offscreen and onscreen but Ms Marcel has had a huge impact on both men & women who struggle with mental illness and who are were victims but now survivors.
A Hertfordshire girl native, 6 years ago Rosie suffered what was believed a nightmare that came into reality. A crazed fan who became obsessed with Rosie Marcel first seemed sweet & innocent, they even posed for a photograph together but then the “fan” began sending threatening messages on social media, harassed Marcel’s family, destroyed Marcel’s relationship with her ex by making imposter accounts lying about sleeping around & cheating.
When police attended Sarah Rumbelow’s property, it was almost as sick as the movie the 2015 Thriller film “The Boy Next-door” and the 2009 psychological horror film “Orphan” as Sarah’s walls were plastered with newspaper cuttings, magazine pictures & posters of Rosie Marcel, even the Hertfordshire Police were shocked by what they found and suddenly people began to realise Rosie’s pleas weren’t lies, she was in danger of a crazed fan.
The poor Rosie felt she had no escape and her life was downhill but then two miracles happened…
Rosie met Ben Stacey & gave birth to a beautiful little girl and her lunatic stalker was the news of the past.
No matter how many times life has knocked down our Rosie or her fictional character Jac, she always seems to bounce or fight back.
Rosie Marcel has been left with life changing illnesses, she has a rare blood clotting disease, an illness that attacks her healthy immune system, her bones are fragile, she’s had problems with her reproductive organs and even survived cervical cancer.
As for Jac, she was placed in care where she was sexually abused, she’s been raped, she lost her half-sister whom she didn’t know existed, her family turned her away, she’s had disastrous relationships, she nearly died from her own ovaries and she’s got a damaged spine by a gunshot wond but Jac will always be an amazing doctor who never stops to do what she does best: Saving lives
Rosie Marcel has given the young female generation a ‘true woman’ to look upto after everything she has endured on and off Television. Most girls and even grown women would look upto actresses from fantasy films with a romantic storyline or a pop star icon but now Rosie Marcel has taken over that role and proven that women don’t need to rely on a man, they can be independent and strong if they push themselves. Marcel’s character Ms Naylor has accomplished a lot in 13 years at Holby City Hospital and she didn’t have a man to aid her in anyway. Yes there was Matteo who tried to convince Jac to team up with him to become the best CT team on Darwin, she was tempted but hesitated. During her painful hours of surgery work with damage to her spin, Jac was willing to operate even if it meant sitting on a chair (which she did).
I honestly think the more the BBC keeps Marcel onscreen the more people are going to have a great person to idolise.
She makes you laugh even though she doesn’t intend to, she doesn’t care if she offends you, she’s happy you feel intimidated, you only get a compliment if you earn it but we all love that about her. Rosie Marcel herself has “So many times I’ve had to apologise to everyone after work” yet the cast couldn’t love her any less.
