Following the revelation that her character Karen Taylor will no longer be appearing in the BBC soap opera, EastEnders actress Lorraine Stanley expressed her regret.

On Instagram, she shared a clip from the Australian comedy Summer Heights High, in which drama teacher Mr. G is compared to her on his last day of work.

She sent love to her on-screen family and thanked the EastEnders crew for the chance as well as the fans for their best wishes in the caption.


Hello, everyone! I really appreciate all of your sweet words over the past week, she wrote.

Thank you to the BBC and Daran Little for providing me the chance to play such a wonderful character. I’ll be sad to say goodbye to Karen Taylor and will miss the entire EastEnders cast and crew.

However, I’m enthused about beginning new businesses and looking forward to my next chapter in life as a jobbing actor.

“Once more, thank you for your nice comments and incredible support!! I’ll miss my Taylor and Baker famalam. Roger Griffiths, Matthew Morrison, Danny Walters, and Clair Norris. Lots of love.

Her co-stars flocked to the comments section to offer their condolences, with Heather Peace, who plays Eve Unwin, writing: “We will miss you very much.” Let’s go on new experiences, my darling.

A handful of fans questioned why the character was eliminated from the program while others were eager to express their affection.

Karen is such a large character, and you do a great job portraying her. Good luck on your next journey, one person said.

I’m going to miss Karen. Another person said, “Such a delightful character always made me chuckle. We’ll miss you Lorraine. Over the years, you and Karen have been so much fun for me. Throughout Chantelle’s tale, you were outstanding. Lots of love.

In 2017, Lorraine assumed the role of matriarch Karen. Since then, she has been at the center of several heartbreaking tales, including one in which she was left reeling from Chantelle’s death at the hands of her violent husband Gray Atkins.

There are several speculations floating around about how Karen will leave the Square, albeit it is still unclear.

While some think she would die, others worry if she might leave the Square heartbroken. After all, many fans have Keanu (Danny Walters) on their list of potential Christmas murder suspects.

No matter how she departs, we will undoubtedly miss her.
