Michelle Ryan

  2. Scarlett Alice Johnson, Adulthood, 2007.    The East Enders beauty won Lexi in the the Kidulthood sequel and then asked to leave in order to accept an LA offer for the (short-lived)  Bionic Woman reboot. The LA series collapsed  but  “it really enriched my career. A big, amazing thing to do. It changed direction too much from episode to episode, which I think is why it lost momentum.”  Ryan returned home  to a dozen  London TV and movie roles in  four years. And Lexi becameanother Albert Square star. 
  3. Freeman Agyeman, Doctor Who #179: Smith and Jones, 2007. Michelle   was in the mix for Doc10 David Tennant’s new travelling rug in 2006.  But “Mish-Mash” agreed only to be his companion –  Lady Christina de Souza – for the 2009 Easter Special, #200:  Planet of the Dead.
  4.  Summer Glau, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, TV, 2008-2009.  The BBC’s EastEnders soapstar – 532 episodes during 2000-2005 – was seen, with Jamie Alexander, for Cameron Phillips in 2007. But she had always been written for Glau.
