Ellen Heywood is a minor character in the story Charlotte.
Ellen was born in 1967 and began studying dance, specifically ballet, from an early age. Eventually, she attained the rank of prima ballerina with the English National Ballet, before retiring from performing to become a private ballet teacher. Ellen is married, and has two daughters- Phoebe (b 1996) and Georgina (b 1999).
In 2005, Ellen began teaching ballet to the then fourteen year old Charlotte Hutchinson, who had recently lost her mother. In addition to teaching her, Ellen quickly became a confidante to the young woman, and in 2011, assisted Charlotte in her plan to reveal her father's involvement in her mother's death- a plan that involved the unknowing assistance of a young man named James Travis.
