The residents of Walford got quite a shock when the Fox family turned up in Albert Square. Leading the charge was pretty newcomer Tiana Benjamin, who plays the brash and stylish Chelsea. London's East End is a rather different environment to that of Hogwarts School for witchcraft and wizardry, which is where Tiana previously made her mark as one of Harry Potter's student pals. But it has given the young performer an ideal opportunity to further develop her acting skills.
