Elinor Lawless is no stranger to medical dramas. The star from Draperstown in County Derry joined the cast of long-standing BBC One show, Casualty, as Dr Stevie Nash back in 2021 – a consultant with a dark past who's out for revenge against her new colleagues.

Elinor's arrival on Casualty came at a significant time, as the beloved medical drama marked its 35th anniversary. But the 42 year old actress had revealed she hoped to honour doctors and nurses through her role, drawing from her personal health experiences.

As at just three years old, she was diagnosed with a hole in her heart and anomalous pulmonary venous drainage, a condition where blood flows incorrectly through the heart.

This led to open-heart surgery in Belfast when she was seven, from which she fully recovered.These days, away from the cameras, Elinor is married to fellow actor Peter Basham, who played PC Anthony Rogers in EastEnders in 2019.
