Edith Horton played by Ruby Rees
Edith has the rare distinction of being both a know-it-all and the school dunce. Ungainly, uncharitable and unimaginative. While she is tolerated by her peers, she is wildly intolerant of others – girls who do mathematics when a “woman’s place is in the home”, the seniors who don’t include her in their secret whisperings, Sara and her unnatural devotion to Miranda. Neglected by her mother, who lives locally but visits rarely, Edith is prone to histrionics and tantrums.
