Kellie Bright (born 1 July 1976) is an English actress who is perhaps best known for her roles as Linda Carter in the British soap opera EastEnders and as Joanna Burrows in TV series The Upper Hand.

Early Years[edit]

Bright began acting at a very young age and is known for performances as a child actress on British television in the late 1980s and the 1990s, including T-Bag and Maid Marian and her Merry Men. In 1990, Bright was cast as Joanna Burrows in TV series The Upper Hand alongside Joe McGann, Diana Weston and Honor Blackman. The series ran for six years.

Later career[edit]

Bright has also had main roles in Bad Girls[1] and BBC radio programme The Archers.[2] She has also guest starred in Da Ali G Show and made an appearance in the film Ali G Indahouse. Bright has made several guest appearances on British television programs, her credits include Holby City, Casualty, The Catherine Tate Show and Vera.[3]

Bright also starred as Joan Trotter in the Only Fools and Horses prequel, Rock and Chips, from 2010 until 2011.[4]


In October 2013, Bright was cast in perhaps her best known role to date as Linda Carter in the BBC soap opera EastEnders.[5] Linda made her first on screen appearance on 19 December 2013, but officially arrived on Albert Square with her husband, Mick (played by Danny Dyer) and her children on 26 December 2013. Since her arrival, Linda has been a part of some of the show's biggest storylines such as her son Johnny revealing he is gay. Linda is the landlady of The Queen Victoria pub.

Personal life[edit]

Bright married her long-term partner, Paul Stocker, in Trelill, Cornwall on 5 July 2014; the couple have a son.[6]
