Bad Girls legend Simone Lahbib has joined the cast of EastEnders as part of a huge storyline for the Carters which will kick off in coming weeks.
Best known as Larkhall governor Helen Stewart, the actress is already filming her scenes and will have a profound effect on Mick (Danny Dyer) and the clan.
Simone Lahbib began filming scenes this summer which will start on screen next month. Bosses are keeping her character under wraps for now but she will have links to Mick Carter.
The actress, well-known for her roles in Bad Girls, Wire in the Blood and Downton Abbey, will arrive in Walford and be working alongside her former Bad Girls co-stars Luisa Bradshaw White, Kellie Bright and Linda Henry.
On joining EastEnders, Simone Lahbib said: ;I’m thrilled to be joining EastEnders. I can’t say too much about who I am playing just yet, but it’s fair to say that she is set to have a lasting impact on the Carters and will test their strength as a family.
‘It’s also been lovely to be reunited with Linda, Luisa and Kellie – it’s been a bit of a Bad Girls reunion!’
Jon Sen, Executive Producer EastEnders added: ‘We’re delighted to welcome Simone to Walford. Her character’s links to the Carter family will form part of an important new storyline for Mick in particular. It’s a story that we look forward to sharing with the audience – with its impact on the Carters set to be everlasting.’
