EastEnders' fans like idea of Tina and Sonia
EastEnders' Luisa Bradshaw-White thinks the show's fans like the prospect of a romance between Tina Carter and Sonia Jackson
EastEnders' Luisa Bradshaw-White thinks fans want Tina Carter and Sonia Fowler to get together.
The 38-year-old actress' Walford alter-ego shared a cheeky kiss with Sonia (Natalie Cassidy) recently even though she's dating firefighter Tosh (Rebecca Scroggs), and Luisa is surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the illicit lip-lock.
She told Inside Soap magazine: "People like the idea of Tina and Sonia, but there is some good stuff between Tina and Tosh when things are going well for them.
"When it's all going right, you can see they've got something really good."
Luisa also revealed she found it difficult to develop her on-screen chemistry with Rebecca as their characters dated for a long time before arriving on the soap.
She explained: "It took a while for Rebecca and I to get Tosh and Tina's relationship right, because they have been together and were already in love when Tosh arrived. We've not actually seen them falling in love on-screen."
In comparison, Luisa found her scenes with Natalie much easier because their characters had only just met.
She added: "We didn't have to fake a past relationship for Tina and Sonia, so it was all a lot more straightforward between us.
"Natalie is hilarious and she's so easy to work with. It's an absolute delight to share any scene with her."
