Having auditioned on a Friday, she started shooting her scenes on the following Monday and that kind of turnaround was just what she wanted. "It was quite good because I didn't get a chance to overthink it," Fitzgerald told Digital Spy.

"I would overthink it, and then you question every single choice you're going to make. But this way, it's quite nice. It's quite relaxing to just be thrown into it."

"She's just one of those really homely people. There's no airs and graces about her. She lacks ego. And then she meets Martin, who's just having one of those days, and every time she meets him, he just seems a bit down on his luck, and she can't help but feel for him," Fitzgerald explained.

Lorna Fitzgerald was born in March 1996 in Northampton. At the age of four she decided after a trip to the theatre that she 'd like to become an actress. She started attending acting and dancing lessons and it wasn't long before she got her first part in a short film called Big Girl Little Girl (2004).

Former employees at Australian fitness brand Lorna Jane claim they were forced to endure a 'hideous bullying' culture and weren't allowed to talk to the founder unless she spoke to them first. Some ex-staff say senior employees at the company used standover tactics and workers complained of losing

"She's that kind of person, and she cares about people. She's written really well. She's written as lovely and, as I said, homely. So I think people will warm to her."

The Loss Adjuster is actually a bit of a soap stars Avengers as Fitzgerald stars alongside Coronation Street's Kym Marsh, fellow EastEnder Martin Kemp and Casualty's Vas Blackwood. Not to mention the legend that is Dame Joan Collins, who has soap history with Dynasty.

Unfortunately for Fitzgerald, her scenes in the movie are all spent with Goss's character so she didn't get to share soap stories with her castmates.

"She's kind of detached from the story a little bit. I didn't get to meet a lot of the cast, which was a bit unfortunate, but it was quite nice to come in and do my thing. She offers some relief to him, I think. She's a bit of glimmer of hope in Martin's life," she noted.

ET spoke with Dan Levy about his latest movie , 'Happiest Season,' now streaming on Hulu.

"It's a shame, I didn't get to meet them because, as you say, we would have had something to talk about and some common ground. But they're all really good in the film, like Kym Marsh, who's just brilliant in it. She's such a cool character."

While Fitzgerald has been in BBC TV movie Cherished before, The Loss Adjuster marks her full movie debut and continues her attempt to try "loads of different things" since her EastEnders exit in 2018.

"I didn't really have a plan when I left. I just kind of thought, 'I'll go with whatever comes in'... I was there for 12 years, so you get used to doing what you're doing [and] I've been really lucky in the fact I've had really varied experiences like this film," she reflected.

"I've also done a bit of stage work, where no night is the same, because every audience is different. It's been fun. I didn't really know what to expect when I left, because I started as a kid and left as an adult. It's all I have known. So I had no expectations of what the real world would be like. But it's been good."

Kym Marsh talks about her movie debut in Christmas rom-com The Loss Adjuster

  Kym Marsh talks about her movie debut in Christmas rom-com The Loss Adjuster "Everything was different, really, but in good ways."The movie – out now in cinemas and available to watch on the likes of Prime Video and iTunes – follows Martin Dyer (Luke Goss) who is enduring the worst day of his life. He's not only in dire financial straits, but his wife Angie (Marsh) is leaving him too and all just in time for Christmas.

This year has, of course, been a bit different for Fitzgerald, as it has been for all of us, and the arrival of The Loss Adjuster – filmed last December – will provide some "light relief", according to the star.

"It's such a lovely feelgood film. You can’t help but laugh at some bits. There are some proper laugh-out-loud moments," Fitzgerald enthused.

"And I think especially because it's Christmassy as I see online that loads of people are putting up their Christmas decorations early, just for something to look forward to. So I think it's that kind of film. You can't help but snuggle up, get yourself a hot chocolate, and then just watch it.

"I saw a lot of things about 'imagine this lockdown without Netflix or without Amazon Prime'. You just think: what would you do? So I think the film's coming at a great time."

The Loss Adjuster is out now in cinemas in Wales, Scotland and Ireland. It will be released in cinemas in England on December 2, and is out on DVD and video-on-demand on November 30.
