“When I look into Edna’s eyes, there is someone looking back at me,” Pearce told The Dodo. “We have a very close bond. Such a wonderful, gentle soul — her expressions of contentment and joy are incredibly infectious. She has put her terrible past well and truly behind her now, and she is loving her new life. Her transformation has been such a joy to have witnessed — one I will never forget.”
