Louisa Lytton comments on EastEnders future and new boss Kate Oates

Share article:

Louisa Lytton has praised new "EastEnders" boss Kate Oates and reaffirmed her own commitment to the soap.

The 29-year-old actress - who rejoined the soap earlier this year as Ruby Allen after first appearing from 2005 to 2006 - praised former producer Iain MacLeod but admitted she was loving the fresh start that has come with a change in leadership.

She said: "Kate is so nice. We're all very excited. It's a really nice atmosphere there.

"Obviously, John brought me back to the show, so I'm very grateful for that, but it's just exciting whenever you have a new boss - to get their different views and their storylines and their ideas, and to see where the show goes. I'm here for a while."

It's been 13 years since Louisa first appeared in Albert Square, and she admitted the BBC soap has changed "massively" in between her two stints.

She added: "It's massively [different]. When I was there before, I was 15 - I was still at school. And it was a different world back then. It's so different now - different as an actress, and different in every sense.

"But it also still feels like the same place. I've still got my friends there. It's still the same atmosphere. I can't explain it.

"People keep asking me if it's different and I'm like, "It's the same but it's different". In a way, I felt like I just went back and I never left. But at the same time, it feels like a total new job. Which is weird."
