Louisa Lytton has admitted she'd really like to join the period drama 'The Crown' in the near future
Louisa Lytton is eyeing up a role in Netflix period drama 'The Crown'.
The 28-year-old actress is looking to expand her acting portfolio after playing teenager Ruby Allen in BBC One soap 'EastEnders', PC Beth Green in police drama 'The Bill' and 70's high school rebel Rizzo in the musical 'Grease is the Word'.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Louisa said: "I'd love to do a period drama over here and more theatre - as long as I'm working I'm happy. I watch 'The Crown', it's brilliant, I've just finished watching the first series - I'd love to do something like that. And hopefully, I know its Grease and it's a sassy character but then for people to see me in a different period it might help than the 70s, but we'll see."
And the brunette star, who appeared on the fourth series of BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing', is keen to take Hollywood by storm and have a shot on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' should she be given the opportunity.
She said: "I've been back and forth (to Hollywood), I got representation over there - it's always an option if the right job came along I would definitely go. I would do the jungle but that's probably the only (other) one (reality show) I would do.
"I don't know (how I would find it) but it would be a nice challenge. But it all depends...I'm busy for the rest of the year, so in a way I haven't really thought past rehearsals let alone another job."
In the meantime, there have been reports that she is to return to soap land but Louisa has confirmed she is yet to hear from EastEnders' bosses about a possible return.
When asked if she had been approached by soap bosses, she replied: "No, they haven't (asked me)."
But she hasn't ruled out a return. She said: "I'd never say no but again it's not really my choice or decision - it depends what they would do as my character. Obviously I've been out of the show long enough so there is definitely room for her to go back but I don't really know at the moment."
It was previously suggested that her character could return as 'Woody' Woodward's (played by popstar Lee Ryan) new love interest when he arrives on the Square.
Speaking about the growing trend of singers making the acting transition, she said: "I went to theatre school so I trained, if people are trained in every aspect of the industry, at some point they might want to try acting and obviously they are coming with a huge following it makes sense for a show to have them. It's kind of a world we live in now, everyone crosses over."
