'EastEnders' actress Hetti Bywater was told off by producers when she cried during a scene where it wasn't called for

Hetti Bywater was told off by 'EastEnders' bosses for crying when it wasn't in the script.

The actress - who plays Lucy Beale in the BBC soap - shed tears while filming scenes where she reconciles with on-screen dad Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt), and producers took her to one side to request she only did it when it was called for.

She said: "Adam is amazing. He can turn on the tears so quickly that I find it hard not to cry in scenes with him.

"In one scene I filmed recently I wasn't supposed to be crying and I just burst into tears. The team had a word with me about it but luckily it worked out OK.

"Another time Lucy was supposed to tell Ian to 'drop dead' during a fight and I started crying because I just didn't want to say the words to him."

Hetti - who is the fourth actress to play the role of Lucy - admits the character has a bitchy background, but the coming months will see her "softer side" revealed.

She added to The Sun newspaper: "Lucy has been really hard on Ian but in the next few months they really build up a relationship and you see a much softer side to her."
