Plays
Yasmin Salter

TELL US A BIT ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
She's smart, sassy; she'll fight for what she wants and normally gets it!! I think the best way to describe her is; she's trouble!!

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT PLAYING YOUR CHARACTER?
She's got some great bitchy scenes but she does have a soft side (occasionally!), so I get best of both worlds.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE AND DISLIKE ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER IF YOU WERE INTRODUCED IN REAL LIFE?
I think I'd like her straight talking and brave attitude but I wouldn't get on with her when she's in one of her 'selfish bitch' moods!

WHAT ARE THE SIMILARITIES/DIFFERENCES BETWEEN YOU AND THE CHARACTER YOU ARE PLAYING?
I like to think we're pretty similar but I'm not as tough as she is, and I'm definitely not so much of a tease!!

WERE YOU A FAN OF FOOTBALLERS' WIVES BEFORE GETTING INVOLVED WITH EXTRA TIME?
Hell yeah, me and the girls would watch it and wait for the bits when the lads got in the showers!

WHAT DO YOU THINK VIEWERS WILL THINK OF THIS EXTENSION TO FOOTBALLERS' WIVES?
Oh, I'm sure they'll enjoy it!!!

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST PROFESSIONAL ACTING ROLE?
A teen in a horror flick. Yes I did wander into the forest alone and yes, I did come to a very nasty end!!!

WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND BROUGHT UP?
Born Barking, brought up in Surrey.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
East London.

DO YOU SUPPORT A FOOTBALL TEAM?
Oh yes. West Ham - God's team.

WHAT IS YOUR STAR SIGN AND DO YOU BELIEVE IN THEM?
Sagittarius and yeah to a certain extent.

WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING INVOLVED WITH EXTRA TIME?
The people, by far... everyone's an absolute diamond.

HAVE YOU FILMED A MEMORABLE SCENE YET?
Probably my sex scene with Tom Swire (Seb Webb) I had met him a few hours earlier, so it was like hey! Pleased to meet you! Shall we go get it on in a limo now????

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING TO DO AFTER FINISHING FILMING THE SERIES?
Work wise - I can only keep my fingers crossed!! Otherwise, a sky dive for cancer research in June and hopefully a motorbike license!

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME? ANY HOBBIES OR SPORTS YOU ENJOY?
I love salsa dancing at the moment, and I do try to get down the gym (ahem)... But really in my free time I just go see my friends for a glass of wine and a good gossip!!
