Sophie Lawrence

Sophie was born in Ilford, then in Essex, now in London and is 50 this week.

She made her name when she joined the cast of Eastenders at the age of 15 in 1988 and played the role of Franak Butcher’s daughter Diane. She wanted to launch a pop career so left the soap, but following her only hit, a cover of Donna Summer’s Love’s Unkind which peaked at number 21 she returned to acting as the music career came to a halt.

Let’s remember her hit whilst we read, with interest, the third comment down on this YouTube clip.
