Samantha Womack played the role of Ronnie Mitchell in the hit UK television series Eastenders, before she left the show for a fw months. The last we saw of her character, was when she was being carted off to prison but now, she is back and Samantha has opened up about returning to the show.
Womack was talking to Hello! when she said, "It was a brilliant plot line but very difficult to play. It was draining emotionally and physically and by the end I was shattered with all the crying and weeping."
Samantha says that she started to miss the show, adding, "It all started to feel like it was unfinished business. I even got a bit jealous not seeing her on-screen. I’ve really missed the cast too. They’re like my extended family so it feels like your first day at school."
Womack then spoke about what changes we can expect to see from Ronnie, "Ronnie was a broken bird at the end but after serving time in prison she’ll be steely and a bit of a matriarch with a lot more power and backbone. She’s found her old inner strength. A bit like me," she continued.
Eastenders airs on BBC One in the UK.
