Eastenders star Samantha Janus has revealed that she would love to swap Albert Square for the Hollywood hills.

After her character Ronnie Mitchell scrapped with Roxy, the actress has expressed her wish to take on more action roles and see Los Angeles as the ideal place to realise this ambition.

Earlier this year former Walford regular Michelle Ryan landed the part of the Bionic Woman in a Hollywood remake of the classic series.

“You don’t get to so that much as a woman, particularly on British TV,” the 35-year old told Bang Showbiz.

“If you work in The States it’s much better and they get to do stunts and stuff.

“I’ve only ever done one thing like that before, it was science fiction where I got to be quite physical, and I liked that, it was strange,” she added.

The comments come on the day that the death of the soap’s creator, Tony Holland, was announced.

The 67-year old writer and scriptwriter created Eastenders in 1971 alongside Julia Smith.
