Maisie Smith has landed her first major film role after leaving EastEnders.
The star, who previously played Tiffany Butcher-Baker in the soap, is set to appear in gangster flick Bermondsey Tales: Fall Of The Roman Empire.
Maisie, 21, will star as Chloe, who is reported to be a leading player in a mobster family.
She will appear in the film alongside the likes of Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels’ actor Alan Ford and Kidulthood’s Adam Deacon.
A source said it is an ‘exciting new venture’ for the actor, who left EastEnders last year after 13 years on the Square.
‘Maisie has secured her first big film role and shooting will begin later this year. It is an exciting new venture for Maisie and she can’t wait to dip her toe into a big new project,’ they continued.
The source told The Sun: ‘Since Strictly Come Dancing and EastEnders she has kept her eyes open for her next on-screen job and the people behind Bermondsey Tales’ thought Maisie was the perfect fit.’
The film is slated to start shooting later this year with Maisie reportedly joining the cast in the summer when she finishes work on stage show Strictly Ballroom: The Musical.
Maisie previously made her feature film debut at the age of four when she appeared as a young Elizabeth I in 2008 film The Other Boleyn Girl alongside Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch and Scarlett Johansson.
She went on to land the role of Tiffany Butcher in EastEnders when she was just six – staying with the show for more than a decade before walking away in 2022.
Her exit storyline saw Tiffany leave Walford alongside her ex-husband Keegan Butcher-Baker (Zack Morris) to start a new life following the revelation that Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) had abused and murdered Keegan’s sister Chantelle (Jessica Plummer).
