The Eve Unwin actress has become a familiar face fans of the London-based drama can’t get enough of.

On screens, she’s known as Stacey Slater’s wife and although the pair only went through a marriage of convenience, they are still very protective of one another.

While away from the limelight, both Heather and Lacey share a similar friendship with the former branding her co-star “one of my best pals.”

“I haven’t made a friend like Lacey for a long time”, she first said.

“As you get older, those friendships don’t come along very often.”

Heather remembers she “connected” with Lacey right from the get-go.

“From day one, we connected, and she’s one of my best pals.”

“Lacey is an absolute diamond – I’d trust her with anything”, she added.

But Heather admitted she was also friendly with some of her other co-stars including Suki Panesar actress Balvinder Sopal and Gillian Wright aka Jean Slater.

“I’m so lucky I get to work with her, Gillian Wright and Balvinder Sopal – phenomenal women.”

In recent scenes, Heather’s on-screen alter ego has been romantically involved with Suki Panesar behind closed doors.

The businesswoman, known for her cold-hearted nature has struggled to make sense out of her sexuality while Eve has been hoping she could commit to a relationship with her.

Both women were caught in bed by Suki’s son, Kheerat.

Heather admitted the scene was one of the most rewarding for her.

“These are two souls who are magnetic and can’t keep away from each other”, she said.

“We wanted to choreograph it so taking that next step was led by Suki.”

“It’s a beautiful, peaceful love story, and Suki had to lead that moment.”

But things may get more complicated for Eve and Suki, despite many EastEnders fans rooting for their romance.

Suki’s abusive husband Nish Panesar has been released from prison after murdering somebody close to her.

More trouble could also be brewing for the Minute Mart owner as she’s terrified of paying the price for Ranveer Gulati’s death.

EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday on BBC One.
