So whilst there is a definite difference, I think that at the end of the day acting is acting.
I pushed through that fear and the rest of the cast and creative team were amazingly supportive.
I think season 1 sees her fall into a pattern of caring and putting others first even if it is to her own detriment, a dynamic which I think relates to her relationship with her mother who is a drug addict.
Fola Evans Akingbola, who played the role of Maddie Bishop, gained a lot of attention.
She grew up with her sister in Bermondsey.
Additional roles include Akingbola playing anti-hero Jimmy Porter in the play of Look Back in Anger at the in July 2008; he was the first black actor to play the role.
