Samantha Womack: Ronnie's become a complete psychopath

EastEnders' Samantha Womack has admitted that her character Ronnie Mitchell is not in a good place right now, describing her as a 'complete psychopath'.

Speaking to the Mirror the actress - whose return to Albert Square has been an explosive one - revealed there was yet more drama to come in the aftermath of Carl White's murder.

"Ronnie's a ticking timebomb," she said. "By rights she should be bound and gagged in a corner, quietly rocking and humming to herself. Ronnie is more dysfunctional than ever."

And the actress pointed out that while Ronnie appeared to be 'coping very well' with recent events, it wouldn't last for ever.

"Ronnie is clearly very damaged, but what has changed now is that she is covering it up much more," Samantha said.

"She’s trying to convince herself that she’s on top of things – but at some point Ronnie’s going to come unstuck. After all, she’s not Hannibal Lecter!

Samantha added that her character's change in personality had made returning to EastEnders a big challenge.

"She used to have such heart before, and she's changed in such an unpalatable way, so it's been a real departure," she explained.

"So it has been challenging to play, but also rewarding."

I must admit, I am a big ‘Samantha Womack’ fan! And I have to say, I am very much disappointed in how the writers are portraying her character - 'Ronnie Mitchell’.

After everything that the character, ‘Ronnie Mitchell' has been through on 'Eastenders' you would think the so-called new writers would have written better lines for the character but NOoooo! The writing for ‘Ronnie Mitchell’ character ABSOLUTELY SUCKS!!!
Whoever the writers are for 'Eastenders'; I think they are doing some very shitty writing for her character. I can't watch another episode of 'Eastenders' if they're just going to continue to write such horrible lines and scenes for ‘Samantha Womack’.

• She had a baby to miscarry.
• She had a baby, James, to die.
• She had a teenage daughter to die.
• She was molested by her dad when she was a child.
• Her sister slept with her boyfriend and had a baby with him.
• She went to prison.
• She was almost raped by Carl-so she murdered him, and now her whorish sister wants nothing to do with her.
• And now it seems as though she maybe going back to prison again.

And there are probably more things that have happened to the character that I forgot to recap.

Now unless ‘Samantha Womack’ is requesting the Eastenders’ Writers to write these sorts of lines for her, then her character SUCKS! Her character makes no sense whatsoever.
