Where is she from?

Not from Walford, but from Northampton.

What did Lorna do before EastEnders?

We mean, she joined the BBC1 soap when she was 10 years old (!!) but before she was a keen ballet and tap dancer. She was a member of Stagecoach and her agent put her forward to audition for the role of Abi Branning.

She has had her fair share of storylines from being hit by Dean Wick's car, her parent's Max Branning and Tanya's messy divorce, a car crash on Tanya's big day to boyfriend Greg, fake pregnancys and locking Babe in a kitchen freezer. Never a dull moment in Albert Square, eh!
