Maisie Smith insists she has not left 'EastEnders'.

The 21-year-old actress is currently on hiatus from the BBC One soap, but she claims the door is always open for her to reprise her role as Tiffany Butcher.

She told OK!: "You never leave 'EastEnders'. I’ve got a family on there that will be there for the next 50 years. I’ll always have a place there. The next time someone gets married or dies, I’m sure I’ll be back.

"They’ve watched me grow up and have never treated me any differently.”

Tiffany is currently residing in Germany with her brother Liam (Alfie Deegan).

The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant's career has been given a major boost after signing up to appear in 'Bermondsey Tales: Fall Of The Roman Empire'.

She is playing the part of Chloe, a leading player in a mobster family opposite 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' actor Alan Ford and 'Kidulthood' star Adam Deacon.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "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.

"Since 'Strictly' 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."

Maisie is filming the movie after her stint in the 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 the 2008 film 'The Other Boleyn Girl' opposite Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch and Scarlett Johansson.

She went on to land the role of Tiffany in 'EastEnders' when she was just six – staying with the show for more than a decade before stepping back last year.
