EastEnders star Zoe Lucker has revealed that she thinks her character, Vanessa Gold, would love to live with Eddie Moon, who is of course played by David Essex.
Zoe explained that Vanessa has fallen for Eddie in a big way, after he was particularly kind to her following her break up with Max Branning (Jake Wood).
The 37-year-old star also thinks it would be a positive step for her alter-ego to be with Eddie.
She said, “Vanessa would love to move into Eddie’s for good and settle down with him. He’s a really nice guy.
“Tyler and Anthony are both good boys, and Vanessa’s very maternal, so it’s just ideal for her…
“All she wants is a place where she can relax a little, and where she feels really safe and loved.”
However, as viewers will know, Vanessa has secretly been working with Eddie’s son Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) to try to ruin Eddie’s life, but the businessman soon realised he no longer required her services, and offered Vanessa a substantial amount of money to walk away from his family forever.
Zoe added to Inside Soap magazine, “She really does like Eddie – how could you not?
“He’s a lovely guy, and the only person in the Square who’s been nice to Vanessa since she split with Max.
“But Michael got to her when she was emotionally vulnerable and not thinking straight.
“Vanessa knew from the start what she was doing was morally wrong, and now she feels really ashamed of herself for going along with it.”
However, Vanessa isn’t prepared to lose Eddie without a fight, and sets about trying to take charge of the tricky situation with Michael.
Zoe explained, “There’s this weird kind of power struggle going on between Michael and Vanessa.
“She gets to the point where she thinks, ‘Hang on a minute, it’s not right that he’s dictating everything here.’
“Vanessa decides she’s not going to put up with it any more, and find the strength to take control of the situation.”
