Lacey Turner
Lacey Turner as Stacey Slater
Lacey Turner
Where there's a Slater, there's chaos. Lacey Turner explains that Stacey's no exception.
How were you cast as Stacey Slater?
I went to an EastEnders audition through myagent, who used to work at my drama class. I went for a part in the Miller family.
Were you at a normal school when you were cast?
Lacey Turner
I was in the last year of secondary school, then I came straight to EastEnders. I'd been doing weekly drama classes since I was about seven. I went every Thursday night.
What other roles have you played?
I did a few adverts, including one for Haribo sweets. I've done theatre too, but nothing as big as EastEnders.
Did you base Stacey on any of the Slater women?
Janine Butcher
I thought she'd be like a cross between Kat and Janine. She's very naughty, but she has her reasons for her nastiness.
What was it like meeting the cast on the first day?
Coming into the biggest family in EastEnders was a very big deal. I was petrified, really scared! I just kept staring at everybody. You've seen them on telly and then you're in a room with them.
Has appearing on EastEnders always been your ambition?
Lacey Turner
I used to live just round the corner from BBC Elstree. Since I was four or five I used to look out my window at the set and think, 'I want to be in that'.
