Luisa Bradshaw-White's EastEnders character 'difficulty'

Share article:

Luisa Bradshaw-White found it "difficult" to get out of character on "EastEnders" during her recent abuse storyline.

The former "Bad Girls" star has had to surround herself with "nice music" in an attempt to get "out of the zone" after her alter-ego Tina Carter was recently terrorised by sadistic Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ), after recounting a horrific ordeal he inflicted upon her during their past.

She said: "I found it really easy to get in the zone, I found it a little difficult to get out.

"On the way home in the car I have to keep saying to myself, "Come on. Nice music, nice music." Ricky Champ makes it effortless to get into character."

Luisa admits Tina is a "really naive" anyway, so it wasn't that hard for calculated Stuart to manipulate her alter-ego.

She added to The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "I think Tina is really naïve and slightly fragile anyway and to watch him manipulate her so easily and she's so fired up and she knows exactly how it is in her head and by the end of the scene he's changed everything and she's like, "Oh s**t"."

Tina is one of many accused of shooting Stuart after he recently terrorised her, including keying his own car and then telling the Walford residents that Tina had done it.

But some of the scenes were quite literally hard-hitting for Ricky after he broke his foot while portraying Stuart smashing up his own flat.

He said: "I had to trash the apartment where I live and smash down on a table, it was a small hairline fracture in a metatarsal, a footballer's injury.

"I had a nice schedule afterwards, got to sit down... it was fine in the end."
