Having kept it as a closely guarded secret, we are thrilled to announce that Lisa Faulkner is joining the cast of EASTENDERS as Fi Browning.
On the role Lisa has said “I’m so happy to be joining the cast of EASTENDERS – it’s an iconic show and I can’t wait to play my part in it.
Fi Browning is a hugely exciting character and I’m really looking forward to working with Sean and all the team, and revealing more about her.
“I can’t say any more now as I’m sworn to secrecy, but it’s going to be a lot of fun!”
Executive producer Sean O’Connor signed Lisa and sees her as a major part of the soap moving forward.
“I’m really thrilled that we have been able to tempt Lisa Faulkner back to TV drama and back to the BBC. She’s an extremely accomplished and hugely popular actress and we’re very excited to have her in Albert Square.
“Fi Browning is something of a departure for EASTENDERS; a no-nonsense but sophisticated business woman with strength and vulnerability.
“But does she have an agenda? And who – or what- has she set her sights on?”
Watch this space but exciting times ahead on the Square!
