Why killing Jamie Mitchell was a bit of a laugh.
I'm half Greek, my dad's a Greek Cypriot. I've got relatives in Cyprus but lots of relatives in London too.
It wasn't as great as it looks on screen. We were shooting for a week and you shoot little bits and pieces of it. It was good fun though, getting to bomb around Albert Square in the car! There was a stuntman for Jack and me ... they both had dodgy wigs on.
Not planned no, I'm happy in EastEnders and I've got some good storylines now. It's good to be part of it and we'll just see how this goes.
The Anna Scher Theatre in London. Natalie Cassidy went there too. It's not a full-time drama school, it's more a group after school but it's very respected. I was about eight when I started. My mum put my name down to get me off the streets really.
Apart from the stuff at Christmas, it was the drugs storyline with Nick Cotton. When you take drugs, you become a different person, so it was nice to get away from Martin a little bit and do something slightly different.
I live in North East London. I used to live in Hackney which is proper East London. What's a typical Londoner though? I suppose I am.
