Lucy Beale's death was one of soaps most watched whodunnits, it was a whole year until we found out who killed her and why, watched by over 10 million viewers.
Hetti was the fourth actress to play the part, portraying a character that was unlucky in love and even struggled with drug abuse.
Hetti has had some work in television since she left Walford, playing Daisy in TV series Delicious in 2016 -2017.
Hetti has since taken up working in a north London bar, earning an honest living between acting jobs.
We have slammed national newspapers in the past for trying to belittle actors for doing regular jobs, it's refreshing to see Hetti being praised for rolling up her sleeves and doing what any of us would do to pay the bills.
EastEnders airs weeknights on BBC One.
