Zoe Lucker's flirty surprise
New 'EastEnders' actress Zoe Lucker is shocked by how flirtatious her 'EastEnders' character is when she turns up in Albert Square
Zoe Lucker is shocked by how flirtatious her 'EastEnders' character is.
The blonde actress - who is set to play Max Branning (Jake Wood)'s new love interest Vanessa Gold in the BBC One soap - admits she is nothing like her confident alter-ego.
She said: "Vanessa comes to the car lot to buy a motor for her daughter. But Max thinks she's probably just a time waster.
"Vanessa's used to men falling at her feet. Max isn't interested, so she's intrigued. After they complete the deal she hands him her card and tell him to call her. I'd never do that in real life!"
The glamorous character will also enter Albert Square with a huge secret.
Zoe explained: "We weren't aware of it at the start, but Vanessa is married. She's been in a relationship for 20 years, though we don't know a lot about her other half. All we find out is that he plays golf and drinks whisky!"
