EastEnders star Rita Simons’ daughter to appear in CBBC drama

EastEnders star Rita Simons’ daughter is following in her mother’s acting footsteps.

Maiya, 16, will play the role of Kaz in CBBC’s Silverpoint, a drama that follows four children who disappeared in the woods in 1997.

Kaz will run away from camp base during the night, prompting three of her pals to go after her, but things change when they find something sinister in the woods – an alien presence with a connection to the teens.

Twenty-three years later, one boy grows determined to find out what happened to the group.

On the set of CBBC’s Saturday Mash Up, Maiya shared a picture of herself and co-stars Scarlett Rayner and Krish Misra on her social media.

This prompted Rita (who played Roxy Mitchell in EastEnders) to repost and encourage her followers to tune in.

Rita shares Maiya and Jaimee with her ex, Theo Silvestone.

Rita and Theo were together for 12 years, splitting up in 2018.

The full series of Silverpoint is available on BBC iPlayer.
