Samantha Zoe Janus is most famous for playing the role of Ronnie Mitchell in EastEnders, Mandy Wilkins in Game On and representing the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 1991. She has also appeared in films, stage shows, and numerous television adverts which have raised her public profile 

She openly admits to having had attitude problems when she was younger which resulted in her being expelled from several schools and leaving home at 15 to live the a wild child lifestyle in squats, surrounded by a wide variety of dodgy friends and drug addicts.

 

However, those who are destined to be stars can always land on their feet, however unlikely their environment, and through a succession of television roles such as Pie in the Sky (with Richard Griffiths), Demob (with Mr. Comic Relief himself, Griff Rhys Jones) and the aforementioned Game On she re-established herself.

Samantha was born in 1974 and she is 5 feet and 8 inches tall.

Stage career included Joan of Arc and taking over the part of Sandy in 'Grease' from Debbie Gibson.
