EastEnders original Chelsea Fox star now – Harry Potter stint to kids TV fame

EastEnders' Chelsea Fox is currently involved in a heavy-hitting storyline in the popular BBC soap opera.

Currently played by Zaraah Abrahams, dedicated fans will remember EastEnders' original Chelsea Fox actress – but what happened to her since her departure from the soap in 2010 – and what does she look like now?

Tiana Opium Benjamin is an English actress, born in Enfield and best known for playing Chelsea Fox in the BBC soap opera EastEnders from 2006 until 2010.

She burst onto our screens in Walford playing Denise Fox's gobby older daughter, and became a household name almost instantly.

The now-37-year-old actress was a firm fixture in the BBC One soap, but left in 2010 and chose not to return when her character reappeared on Christmas Day 2020.

First appearing in Walford in May 2006, Tiana was apparently so dedicated to the show that she ditched Hogwarts for Albert Square.

She reportedly left her role in the Harry Potter films to play the role of Chelsea Fox – which is why some people might recognise Tiana as playing Angelina Johnson in fourth flick, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, from the franchise.

Since leaving EastEnders, Tiana has starred in many TV dramas. Fans of Tracy Beaker may recognise her as playing Bailey's mum Alison in The Dumping Ground in 2016.

As well as her stints in Harry Potter and Tracy Beaker spin-off The Dumping Ground, she has also popped up in dramas like Holby City, Casualty and The Bill.

In 2011, Tiana starred in the film Fast Girls, alongside Lily James and Lenora Critchlow.

Just a couple of years ago back in 2019, she appeared in two other films as well – The Creatress and Absent.

Tiana isn't active on social media, and reportedly deleted her Instagram account a couple of years ago, but has popped up on one fan's account a few years back.

In 2015 an Instagram user took to the platform to share a sweet selfie with the star, where he wrote: "Me with Tiana Benjamin #eastenders #harrypotter #london #legend #selfie #angelinajohnson #tianabenjamin."

Another Instagram user commented below, saying: "She looks great!"

Tiana tends to keep her private life out of the limelight and has no acting credits since 2019.

Currently in Walford though, Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) is delving into Chantelle Atkins' death and how Gray (Toby-Alexander Smith), her husband was involved.

Whitney's suspicions have been growing around her ex Gray, as he prepares to get married to Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams).
