Molly Rainford is a relative newcomer on EastEnders. The young actress has been on the soap barely a month, and has already been pushed into the center of the biggest storyline of the BBC One soap in recent times! Molly portrayed the character of Anna Knight on EastEnders, who happens to be George and Rose Knight’s daughter. However, it was recently revealed to the shock of all characters, as well as, viewers that Rose Knight is actually Cindy Beale. The iconic and very much alive, Cindy Beale!
Shedding light on the aforementioned revelation, Molly gushed that she was just as surprised as the viewers were. In fact, she too learnt the truth of Rose being Cindy in the same week as it was telecasted. The EastEnders actress added that there was a guessing game going on. As she and Francesca Henry (Gina) were told that someone from the past will return to play their on-screen mum. But it was only a few days ahead of the telecast that they actually met Michelle! Speaking about the EastEnders icon, Molly said that “Michelle was just really cool.”
Furthermore, Molly Rainford assured the fans that Cindy’s return would be “something really special” on EastEnders. Previously, the BBC One soap’s boss, Chris Clenshaw, had also spoken about how hard they have worked to make Cindy’s return epic and believable. The storyline was in works for a whole year before it actually went on floor. Currently, Cindy is living in France with Ian and their son, Peter. Meanwhile, Rose/ Cindy’s daughter, Anna, and Ian’s son, Bobby, are trying to find their respective parents.
Anna’s Romantic Future On EastEnders
Speaking about her co-character Bobby, Molly said that their could be a dating angle between Bobby and Anna on EastEnders. Although, Anna is Cindy’s daughter, and Bobby is Ian’s son, the two youngsters are not related by blood. Thus, a romantic relationship is very much possible between them. However, there is another romantic prospect for Anna to loot at, Freddie Slater
. Molly believes that Anna has a lot in common with both of them. Thus, a romantic angle with either of them would work!
Although, right now, Anna is more confident about Bobby on EastEnders. Molly enthuses that Anna finds it “quite endearing that he’s a bit nervous and shy around her.” But also, she kind of enjoys Freddie’s brazenness. She likes how he “doesn’t have a filter and just does stuff.” So we guess we will have to wait and find out who Anna eventually becomes closer to! Until then, stay tuned to TV Season & Spoilers for more EastEnders updates!
