EastEnders Eve star’s life – second job, Waterloo Road fame and rival soap role

Actress Heather Peace may be recognised on BBC One's EastEnders, but it's not the only place she's built her credits.

Heather currently plays Eve Unwin on the soap after being brought to Albert Square with Stacey Slater upon her return from jail – and she's soon become a key part of the locals.

Fans immediately warned to Eve and have loved her fiery character – and they've even watched her fall in love with an unlikely woman as she and Suki Panesar put their troubles behind them.

But it looks like things could take a sharp turn for the pair and end in heartbreak.

Residents on Albert Square were unsure of Eve when she first arrived, but it seems she's quickly won them over and has fit in nicely with the fellow locals.

As fans watch Eve go through her relationship struggles, Daily Star has looked into the life of the actress and what she gets up to off-screen.

Second job

While fans may best know Heather Peace from her extensive acting credits, some will be shocked to hear that she's also a singer.

Heather regularly performs all over the country and even her Instagram followers witness a little sneak-peek of her shows.

Not only does she sing but she also plays guitar and piano joins a band to perform at live concerts.

Her EastEnders co-stars have been incredibly supportive of her second career with the likes of Lacey Turner and Emma Barton all praising her tracks.

She's released five albums throughout her career, with the most recent dropping in 2018 titled Hey Mayhem.

Waterloo Road

Many fans will recognise Heather from her time on Waterloo Road as Nikki Boston.

She joined the teaching staff in series seven and made her last ever appearance on the popular TV show towards the end of series nine.

Her character later became the headteacher and deputy headteacher and she had a total of 47 episodes on the show.

As the show prepares for the ultimate comeback, Heather has said a return to the series would "be amazing at some point" – so she's definitely not closed the door.

Rival soap roles

While she may appear as a series regular on EastEnders and did so on Waterloo Road too, she's also featured for multiple one-off episodes elsewhere.

For a short time in 1997 Heather played Anne Cullen on Emmerdale, with just a handful of episodes named on her IMDB.

Heather worked on both Casualty and Holby City in her time and even had two separate stints on the latter.

She played Gina Wilson in series five and returned again as a different character, DS Karen Tate, in series 12 Heather also played Alex Dawson for multiple stints between 2019 and 2020.

Elsewhere Heather landed multiple roles as different characters in Doctors too.
