Tiffany Butcher will depart Walford towards the end of the year with the door left open for her return.
Maisie Smith filmed her final scenes at EastEnders today as Tiffany Butcher is set to depart Walford towards the end of the year.
Maisie joined the cast of EastEnders as Tiffany in 2008 at just six years old. Tiffany has had a dramatic few months, with the breakdown of her relationship with her husband Keegan and the return of her brother Liam.
The exact circumstances of her departure have not yet been revealed.
Speaking about her exit, Executive Producer, Jon Sen said "We are all very sad to see Maisie leave. She's been a wonderful company member during her time at EastEnders and it's been a privilege to see her blossom into the star she is."
"She has created an iconic character in Tiff and the door is always open to her return. We wish her all the very best for her future projects."
Speaking about leaving EastEnders, Maisie Smith said "It’s time to say farewell to Tiff! I’ve grown up on EastEnders since 2008, and have learnt from the best over the past 13 years. I’m very excited for my next challenge and thank the BBC for the opportunity they gave me as a 6-year-old."
