Everyone loves a bit of Eastenders, and since 1985 it has been keeping us on the edge of our seats.

As with most soap-operas, you see characters come and go, sometimes quietly, but more often in very dramatic ways.

One character who seems to love a disappearing act is Tiffany Butcher, the daughter of Bianca Jackson. So who is the actress behind Tiffany and what has she been up to between Eastenders?

Who Plays Tiffany in Eastenders?

The character has been played for many years by young actress Maisie Smith, who began her career on Eastenders in 2008.

It seems that the show is continuing to be a huge part of her life, and we can expect her to stick around for a while. She returned to the show January 2019 and has confirmed that her role will now provide her a full-time career.

For those who have always felt she was a familiar face, you may be surprised to hear of another early role she took.

Maisie Smith as a Child

Masie starred alongside none other than Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman in the film The Other Boleyn Girl, which told the tale of two sisters striving for the affections of King Henry VIII.

Masie was just seven years old at the time!

Maisie Smith: Age

Maisie Smith is 17 years old, born on July 9, 2001.

At such a young age she has had quite the career. Her talents don’t stop with acting, either!

Maisie Smith: Singing

You guessed it, she’s also a singer! She released her first single “Good Thing” in 2016 and her second, “Where My Heart Is” in 2017.

However, it seems that acting is her true passion, and we can expect to watch her on Albert Square for years to come.
