Elaine Clark



One of the City of Aberdeen’s foremost edumacators, Elaine brings her own distinctive blonde dizziness to the Pig proceedings and several members of her family too, who are inevitably asked to add some exquisite musical ornamentation to the show.

Elaine commenced her theatrical training at Scotstown and Udny Green Primaries before graduating to Ellon Academy. Theatre work includes Third Angel in the School Nativity and a hooting part as an Owl in The Wind in the Willows, for which she achieved critical acclaim for the intensity of her acting, as well as the magnificent costume lovingly hand crafted by her mother from finest brown paper. Elaine now performs in front of a captive audiences 5 days a week at Albyn School.

Television work includes a week-long stint on Wacaday where she taught Timmy Mallet the finer points of Scottish Country Dancing, and also a starring role as “incredulous teenager in the crowd at Pittodrie” in a glorious Don’s defeat of Rangers.

A die-hard Aberdeen fan, Lainey takes great pride in the fact that her late Grandma played for the Dons when ladies football briefly flourished during wartime. Even with her zimmer, she would still have beaten Zander Diamond over six yards.
