In forthcoming EastEnders episodes, Molly Rainford will make her Albert Square debut as newbie Anna Knight. The actress has spoken about how ‘crazy’ her part is.
When Linda Carter and Elaine Peacock (Kellie Bright and Harriet Thorpe) are getting ready to move into the Queen Vic, Anna will be arriving in Walford with her sister Gina (Francesca Henry) and father George (Colin Salmon).
Molly described the ‘amazing’ experience of shooting for a programme that she has grown up watching.
“It is crazy!” We’ve all been EastEnders fans for as long as we can remember, and the majority of us identify with the neighbourhood. It feels significant since the majority of our relatives are there.
I feel like I’ve been here before since I watched it. It’s wonderful, outstanding.
Molly says she is happy to have been thrust into the Queen Vic with her new on-screen family despite the chaos of taking on a part in a “big beast” like EastEnders.
You have to become involved, therefore I’m glad that our whole family has stepped in.
We’re fortunate to be at the Vic because we get to interact with so many other cast members. It truly does make us feel welcome quite soon.
They are such a kind group, and we immediately feel like a family, which is wonderful for us.
The youngest Knight sister, Anna, is the one who Molly claims keeps the family together.
“Anna is the bubbly, happy character who wants to get along with everyone,” says the author.
She is enthusiastic about starting again in Walford, but the best part is that she is the one who keeps her sister, dad, and all of them together.
Being a member of the family in that manner is wonderful. She demonstrates that being nice is not always a sign of weakness. The infant is she. They constantly serve as the glue.
When Anna and Gina arrive on the Square, Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) notices them and falls head over heels for both of them.
Molly has made it obvious that the girls aren’t seeking a committed commitment, however.
They arrived from Marbella, where they had a rapid growth period. Instead of looking for anything too serious too soon, they are eager to explore the fresh visual candy on the Square. They just seem happy to be there.
