Remember London’s Burning? Here’s Where The Cast Are Now
London’s Burning was our favourite fireman-related drama of all time (after Fireman Sam, of course), and we came to love all of its crazy and sometimes exasperating characters. But where are they now? Well, we’ve found out…
John Alford (Billy Ray)
John Alford played Billy, a pint-sized pocket-rocket with a temper to match his sense of humour. Whether picking up girls at strip clubs or coaching his colleagues to box, Billy was one of the best-loved faces at Blackwall.
After legal problems, involving six weeks in prison on a drugs rap, John worked as a roofer before returning to our screens in Mile High, Casualty and the reality show Trust Me…I’m a Beauty Therapist.
Samantha Beckinsale (Kate Stevens)Samantha Beckinsale played Kate Stevens, a lively and bubbly firefighter whose rapid progress annoyed some of her male colleagues. It wasn’t all smiles for Kate though, as she had to endure a tangled love-life with many adventure-seeking boyfriends before she left the show.
Samantha was born to be an actress, being the daughter of Porridge legend Richard Beckinsale, and half-sister of Hollywood A-lister Kate. While she may not be bothering Hollywood, Samantha’s stayed in the business, popping up in Holby City, Heartbeat and others.
