If you didn’t already know which I’m sure you do, Nurse Phyllis Crane is the name of the character that Bassett plays in Call the Midwife. You must have noticed her if you watched the show. I mean, of course, you have noticed her because it’s a very fierce character she’s playing which does not just simply fade into the background, and on top of it, she’s a very strong performer as well. But what I meant was: did you observe her physique? Did you think that she has had a weight loss?

A lot of the viewers of Call the Midwife seem to think that Linda Bassett looks skinnier than she did in the previous seasons and not every single one of them can be wrong. There must be a reason why the actress’ physique has stood out to them when it didn’t before and that can only be the actual fluctuation in her weight. But not everyone sees that there’s something different about her appearance. Not everyone thinks that she had weight loss.

Most of the people who are scouring the internet for information about her weight might be the ones who don’t see that she looks thinner than before. I will tell you that you can’t really notice anything different in her appearance until you look at her very closely. If you are more engaged in the story and the plot, it most certainly would escape your notice. You would never see that she has had a weight loss.

Linda Bassett Has Not Spoken About Her Weight Loss!

Only if you are the observant kind and by that, I mean, observant of the surroundings along with the people in it, will you see that Bassett, after all, really appears to be smaller than before. Not that she was ever anything other than thin and small before but her appearance in the new season of Call the Midwife seems a lot different than how she looked in the previous seasons. Linda Bassett‘s weight loss has slightly worried the viewers who have noticed the difference.

The actress not only looks like she has shed a few pounds but she also looks a little frail and sickly in the show and nobody knows if that was a part of the filming or if it was just her. But because there has been no confirmation that she was made up to look that way, people are inclined to believe that she really has undergone weight loss which has not been an improvement because she looks sickly.

Fans want to know what happened to her that made her lose her weight and they are especially concerned about her health but Linda Bassett has not spoken about her weight loss yet.
