Luisa Bradshaw-White wants to focus on family rather than being "famous".
The 39-year-old 'EastEnders' actress - who plays Tina Carter on the soap - has admitted it was daunting joining such a popular TV show, but she has been able to cope thanks to her home life.
She said: "It frightened me.Years ago, people in 'EastEnders' were very, very famous and I never wanted that. But now you've got all the reality TV stars taking that place so actors can just get on with doing their job.
"Of course, if you want to be a celebrity you can, but when it comes to walking down the red carpet, there's a whole generation of 'EastEnders' stars younger than me who can do that.
"I can just be like a mum. The pressure to be beautiful is off me. I feel at ease as I'm not trying to be somebody I don't think I've ever been."
Meanwhile, Luisa - who joined the soap last year - admitted despite her success, "can't let go" of her role as a parent and partner.
She told The Sun newspaper's TV Magazine: "I've got a partner, Annette, and we've been together 15 years.
"I've been a stay-at-home mum for the past eight years and now Annette's taken a year out for the [two] girls.
"Although I can't let go of that role - I get home and still try to control everything."
