Runaway lovers Demi Miller and Leo Taylor are set to bring William Shakespeare to Walford.
09:58 11 August 2005Runaway lovers Demi Miller and Leo Taylor are set to bring William Shakespeare to Walford.
In scenes reminiscent of the great bard's tragedy Romeo & Juliet, Leo will kill himself with a potion (of heroin) when he thinks that Demi has already committed suicide by the same method.
But then Demi wakes up to find her Romeo dying from the overdose.
Shana Swash, who plays the 14-year-old mother, had to kiss 17-year-old Philip Dowling (who plays Leo) while filming the scene, and was none too happy about it.
"I didn't want to do it and I got really upset about it," she told the Daily Star.
The star-crossed lovers have been at the centre of a dramatic storyline in recent weeks, as the Miller family become increasingly desperate about Demi's departure and Pauline takes Demi's baby Aleesha back to Albert Square.
