Lorna Fitzgerald remembers her 'awkward teenage phase'

Share article:

Lorna Fitzgerald feels embarrassed looking at scenes of herself on "EastEnders" during her "awkward teenage phase".

The 21-year-old actress stars as Abi Branning in the BBC soap, and while she has few regrets about growing up on screen, she does look back on her side fringe with some discomfort.

Asked how she found growing up on screen, Lorna explained: "I've never had anything to compare it to, but I wouldn't have had it any other way and I've really enjoyed it.

"The only thing is if you've gone through an awkward teenage stage and you still get tagged in photos. I'm referring to my side fringe!

"And I cringe at some of the scenes from when I was little, like me singing to my gerbil or getting my head stuck in the railings."
