Jessie Wallace 'too scared' to let daughter out after more London stabbings

Share article:

Jessie Wallace is "too scared" to let her daughter go outside after a number of stabbings in London.

The "EastEnders" actress - who has 14-year-old kid Tallulah - is worried about what is happening in the capital after a spate of tragedies in 2019.

Responding to a tweet which claimed an 18-year-old man was in "a life threatening condition" after being stabbed "multiple times" in north London, she wrote: "It's at the point where I'm too scared to let my daughter out after school now. (sic)"

Jessie's concerns come nearly a year after "EastEnders" - on which she plays Kat Moon - aired a hard-hitting knife crime plot which saw Shakil Kazemi (Shaheen Jafargholi) brutally stabbed to death.

The BBC One soap took the unusual decision to feature relatives of real-life victims in Shakil's funeral episode, and Bonnie Langford - who played the late character's mother Carmel Kazemi - admitted she felt "more responsible and determined" to portray the plot "accurately" after learning about their involvement.

She told BANG Showbiz: "To put the special true-life contributors in there, I think adds real gravitas. To show we're not trying to sensationalise something so serious.

"Let it speak for itself, let these people tell you because there's nothing more truthful and heart-breaking to see than that. It's been done with so much authenticity and integrity.

"After meeting the people, I felt more responsible and determined to get this as accurate and emotionally meaningful as possible. I felt really honoured to be a part of it.

"It was a jump into the unknown. When they told me I found it intriguing and exciting, but it was a strange dividing line and I wondered how we would separate art from real life."
