Ryan will never return to 'EastEnders'

The 26-year-old actress Michelle Ryan - who played the role of Zoe Slater in 'EastEnders' from 2000 to 2005 - admits she would not like to go back to appearing in Albert Square because of the amount of time needed to work on such a show.

Speaking at the world premiere of '4.3.2.1' at London's Empire Leicester Square Cinema, Michelle said: "No I wouldn't consider working on a soap again. I think it's... I like the freedom I have now. I like to be able to jump from job to job - do theatre and then travel to the US and do a job and come back here and work on things.

"So for me, it's the freedom I'd love. So no to soaps! That's where I started and it's kind of a very... fixed schedule, and for the rest of my life I like the freedom."

Michelle plays the role of bad girl Kelly in the new Noel Clarke film, and even did her own stunts in the movie.

She said: "I did do my own stunts, yeah. I loved doing that. I have a lot of energy so it's good for me to be able to do that, use it up."
