Geraldine Proudman

Played by Linda Cropper

Mother of Nina, Billie and Jimmy, Geraldine is a creative, intelligent woman who earns her living as an architectural model maker. Young at heart but with a keen insight into the ways of the world, Geraldine refuses to submit to society’s expectation that women of a certain age should fade away and surrender their sexuality. She is passionately connected to each of her children, but she also has a life of her own and is committed to making the most of it. 

This season, Geraldine must deal with yet another curveball flung from Darcy’s past, and is becoming increasingly irritated by her children’s reliance on her.
