Eastenders spoilers: Sonia Jackson (Natalie Cassidy) coming back?
The 28 year old actress is best known as Sonia Jackson from the BBC soap – a role she played from 1993 to 2007 – and in an interview with The Mirror she confessed that she is so desperate to go back to her old job, that she’s going to ask producers about the possibility over the next few months.
Admitting that the cast of Easties is just like her “family”, the new mum said:
“I’d go back to Eastenders in a heartbeat. I see it as my home, I see them as my family.
“They might say, “No, we don’t want any more old faces”, but I am definitely going to ask them in the next few months and see what they say.”
She also admitted that it doesn’t bother her at all, when people confuse her with her on screen alter ego. She alughed:
“When people come up to me and shout, ‘Sonia! Where’s your trumpet?’, which they still do a few times a week, I don’t mind at all.”
Natalie did make a bit of an Eastenders comeback last year, appearing in a small number of episodes between 8 and 18 February 2010 and then again, she made a one off appearance at the end of 2010, as Bianca came out of hiding and confessed to police that she beat up Whitney’s boyfriend Conor.
