EastEnders’ Linda Carter will clash with George Knight, warns Kellie Bright
EASTENDERS’ Linda Carter will clash with George Knight, warns Kellie Bright.
The actress has played the landlady of The Queen Vic since 2013 and has won awards for her work as the long-running character.
However, its all change on the square as Linda struggled to run The Queen Vic alone since her husband Mick disappeared at sea last Christmas.
Linda’s mother returned to the Square with a brand new family in tow made up of her new lover George Knight (Colin Salmon) and his two daughters Gina (Francesca Henry) and Anna (Molly Rainford).
And Kellie, 46, hinted that there are plenty of fireworks to come as her character does “angry very well.”
She revealed: “You’ve got remember she has lost Mick, very scarred by Janine.
“For her everyone is the enemy and no one is to be trusted especially not this man who as far as shes concerned her mum does not know nearly well enough.
“Starting from that place there is no openness, not wanting to get to know them.
“You’ve going to have to prove yourself to me. Linda does angry very well. The donut is there again time to bring it back!
“Its all a bit of a shock to the system, she suddenly has to not just share her pub with these people but her whole world, they move in, it’s a transition time!”
This comes after Linda Carter raged at George Knight after he first arrived in The Square.
Elaine Peacock returned to Walford and took control over The Vic to help out her daughter Linda Carter.
But when her mother’s secret partner George Knight makes his EastEnders debut, the pub landlady was far from pleased to see him.
Since her return, Elaine has ruffled quite a few feathers and it became clear she’d be joined by a mystery person after she made a cryptic phone call behind Linda’s back.
And off camera, Kelly has hinted at more fireworks to come as she described filming as “relentless.”
She explained: “It has been really wonderful to play [I] really enjoyed the last few months working with them all, I feel very lucky and like they have breathed life back into Linda Carter which is nice.
“I don’t know where this is going but it feels special and exciting.
“[It’s] been relentless, its full on for them, the analogy is it’s a roller coaster, jump on and then you’ll get used to it and you’ll be fine!
“They’ve all been amazing it is breakneck speed, lovely to see it.”
