Zaraah, who you may also recognise from ‘Dancing On Ice’ and ‘Waterloo Road’ is taking on the role of Opal in season two of the show, reports The Sun and she's already begun rehearsals.

Of course, Zaraah isn’t the first star to swap the world of soap for Hollywood and it was recently reported that another former ‘Corrie’ star, Georgia May Foote, could also be starring in a new drama Stateside.

Two former ‘EastEnders’ stars, Ben Hardy and Sam Strike, are also heading to LA, after nabbing huge movie roles.

Ben, who played Peter Beale, is believed to have scored a role in an upcoming ‘X-Men’ film, while Sam, who starred as Danny Dyer’s on-screen son Johnny Carter, has taken on a mystery project.
