Hollyoaks Vicky stars life – co-star brother, second job and TV past exposed

Hollyoaks actress Anya Lawrence immediately lit up screens last year as she made her debut as Scott Drinkwell's foster daughter, Vicky Grant.

The headstrong character ruffled feathers on the Channel 4 soap when she clashed with Scott and was accused of theft when Maxine Minniver noticed some items were missing shortly after her arrival.

Anya also has ties to the soap prior to hear appearance, with her own brother taking on a role back in 2018.

It’s also not hard to believe that the raven haired beauty has a second career as a model.

From glamorous photoshoots to luxury vacations Daily Star takes a look at Anya’s life away from the cameras as Vicky debates leaving the village.

Co-star brother

She’s currently making her mark on the soap as Scott Drinkwell's foster daughter Vicky Grant, but hardcore soap fans may have spotted the star’s brother in some episodes of the soap back in 2018.

Actor Gabriel Lawrence has appeared in Hollyoaks playing Max Owen from August 2018 to July 2019.

He was to be adopted by Tony Hutchinson and Jacqui McQueen, due to Jacqui's infertility, but Tina and Dom decided to keep him.

His character became a pawn between several characters all vying to be his guardian. Max ultimately decided that he would go and live with Nicole in Greece in dramatic scenes.

As his big sister now takes her turn to shine as a soap star, the siblings clearly have a bright future ahead of them on the screen.

Speaking about joining Hollyoaks, Anya Lawrence told Digital Spy back in May: "Vicky is a whirlwind! She has had a really difficult start in life and is trying to find a place where she can fit in.

"I have come to love her, she is fierce and vulnerable, and those two contrasting characteristics make her fun to play.

"I am so excited to watch her develop and grow. Who knows what she will be up to next!"

Second job

It’s no surprise the dark-haired beauty has a second career as a model when she’s not shooting dramatic scenes for the Channel 4 soap.

According to the star’s agency profile, Anya has appeared in campaigns for supermarket chain LIDL, Awkward World Photographic and the Manchester Tourist Board TVC.

She also regularly showcases her good looks to her 3,500k Instagram followers with a series of modelling snaps and photos from her luxurious getaways.

One gorgeous snap shows the star posing in front of a sunflower field wearing an orange bikini top and a casual white shirt.

Another picture taken during a trip to Greece shows Anya wearing a floral dress with strappy white heels that show off her endless legs.

Fans swooned over the star in the comments with one writing: “WOW you are a goddess!!” another echoed: “simply stunning!!! U look amazing!”

TV past

Anya first shot to fame as a child star on CBBC horror show Creeped Out back in 2017.

The thirteen-episode series saw the actors tell eerie stories, showcase sinister puppets, navigate mysterious basement portals and more.

A then 12-year-old Anya spoke about how the experience was for her with her agency Ology. She said at the time: “Hi, my name is Anya, I am 12 years old and have had THE most amazing time filming a new CBBC drama called ‘Creeped Out.’

"On the day of the read-through I got to meet the other cast members – I’d been dying to see who was going to be playing the other parts!

"I also got to meet the director, producer, executive producer, the writers, casting director again (I’d met them in my auditions too) and a whole lot of other people as well, it was exciting stuff!”

Hollyoaks airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 6.30pm followed by first-look episodes on E4 at 7pm
