Watch out Booty staff – there’s a new salon owner in town and she means business. Sadie Young (Kate Magowan) is set to take over at the beauticians in the coming weeks and it seems that no one is guaranteed a place on the staffing list. Take Poppy (Rachel Bright), for instance, who is told in no uncertain terms that she’ll have to earn her job back.
When news of Kate Magowan’s casting broke earlier this month, the actress commented: “I’m thrilled to be joining EastEnders and look forward to seeing what the character of Sadie will get up to in Walford.”
Lorraine Newman, executive producer, added: “We’re delighted to have the stunning Kate Magowan joining the show. Sadie will sprinkle a little glamour over Walford and – with her no-nonsense approach to life – she’s a great role model to those around her. She knows what she wants and will aim high. Sadie plays as hard as she works, creating friendships and admirers in her wake. As the autumn unfolds, we’ll soon realise that there is far more to Sadie than simply meets the eye.”
