Rachel Hicks

Played by
Joanne Froggatt

Sentence
Thirty months for possession (ecstasy tablets) with intent to supply.

Background
From Stockport, Greater Manchester. Has a baby daughter - Maddie - whose drug-dealer father died of an overdose shortly before her birth.

Profile
Rachel arrives at Larkhall determined to keep her head down. Her nervous, introverted nature makes her a natural target G-Wing's bullies and she lacks the mental and physical toughness to defend herself against them.

Anyone who tries to befriend Rachel quickly receives the brush-off - her painful shyness and timidity has long since seen her building a wall to isolate herself from everyone, including those who try to help her.

Last seen...
Dead in the four-bed dorm after hanging herself with her bed-sheets (s1ep4).
