Kara Tointon is one of the best actresses on TV today, in my opinion. She is so beautiful, that girls want to be her, and men want to be with her. As well as this, she's a brilliant actress, and can work with multiple characters. However, I think she is best at the sarcastic, snappy characters, with examples being Gina Moliano in Dream Team, and of course, Dawn Swann in Eastenders. These roles bring out the best of her acting ability.
At the moment, I think that's wasted in Eastenders, and I really hope that they'll give her character a bigger and more interesting storyline in the months to come.
