SHE had a whirlwind two years as EastEnders’ Nancy Carter, now MADDY HILL has landed another job on a top BBC drama.
The actress joins the cast of Casualty playing idealistic paramedic Ruby next month, and she’ll appear on our screens in the summer.
Maddy first burst onto Albert Square in 2014 as the fiery tomboy daughter of Mick and Linda Carter played by DANNY DYER and KELLIE BRIGHT.
Nancy was involved in some gripping storylines, including the rape of her mother, her battle with epilepsy and the coming out struggle of her brother Johnny, a role played initially by SAM STRIKE and, since 2016, by TED REILLY.
The role earned her two Best Newcomer gongs, one at the 2014 British Soap Awards, the other at 2015 National Television awards. But she left the soap a year later to pursue more theatre work.
Maddy’s Casualty character is a medic who likes to play by the rules, but discovers how hard that can be when faced with the unpredictability of life in Accident & Emergency.
She said: “I’m incredibly excited to be working with the BBC again on Casualty.
"It’s such a well loved and respected show and the role of Ruby is like no one I’ve ever played before.”
Lucy Raffety, series producer Casualty, says: “We are so thrilled and excited about Maddy joining the cast of Casualty.
"She’s a fantastic actress with such warmth and fabulous range that we’re sure she’ll be a massive hit with our audience.”
Here’s hoping she makes as big an impact on the wards as she did in Walford.
