Jane Leeves doen't want any part of a Frasier reunion. The show's main star Kelsey Grammer has tweeted about a possible reunion, saying it would be 'interesting' and suggesting it could be focused on the next generation. But Essex-born Jane, who played Mancunian housekeeper Daphne who eventually married Frasier's brother Niles, said she didn't like the idea. She said: "You just want to imagine those characters off in their happy lives, maybe Niles and Daphne have a couple more kids now." But Jane added that she is still in touch with the cast. Peri Gilpin, who played producer Roz, lives next door to her, they go hiking together in Malibu, and are godmothers to each other's daughters. She watched David Hyde Pierce - who played Niles - when he appeared in a play in the West End, and she was invited to Kelsey's recent wedding, but couldn't go due to filming commitments on her latest show Hot In Cleveland, a role which she describes as a 'real gift'. Hot In Cleveland continues on Sundays on Sky Living.
