Hetti Bywater would like 'EastEnders' to "shock" viewers by revealing Lucy Beale committed suicide.
The lengthy 'Whodunnit?' plot will come to a climax during the show's 30th anniversary celebrations this month and though the actress is convinced her on-screen twin brother, Peter Beale (Ben Hardy) is the murderer, she would love there to be a surprise twist.
Hetti said: "I want it to be Peter. And I've dreamt that he did it - he's been planning it for months, so it was totally premeditated.
"It was a really dark side of Peter that we hadn't seen before.
"But part of me thinks that it would give the public a shock if it turned out Lucy had committed suicide. Who killed Lucy? Lucy."
Meanwhile, Adam Woodyatt, who plays Lucy's father Ian Beale, has turned detective to find out who the killer is and admits he has suspected everyone on the show at some point.
He told Radio Times magazine: "I've gone full-on Claire Danes from 'Homeland' about this.
"Over the past eight months, I've suspected every member of the cast.
"We used to sit in the Vic pointing the finger at each other; the Beales were blaming the Brannings, while the Brannings were blaming the Beales."
As for Ben, he insists the killer can't be a member of his screen family and is most likely to be Abi Branning (Lorna Fitzgerald).
He said: "I know it's Abi - it can't be anyone else. It's definitely not a Beale. And remember, I have an extra six weeks worth of knowledge that the public doesn't have. All of which informs me it's Abi."
