EastEnders’ daughter Rita Simons to star in Silverpoint

EastEnders veteran Rita Simons has revealed that her teenage daughter is a TV star in her own right when she appeared on CBBC’s Saturday Mash Up Live!

Rita, 45, who is known for her role as Roxy Mitchell on the popular soap, posted words of encouragement for her daughter on Instagram.

Maiya Silveston, one of the twin daughters of Rita and her ex Theo Silveston, appeared on the show to promote the new TV series she stars in.

The 16-year-old actress will take on the role of Kaz in Silverpoint, a BBC drama centered on four children who went missing in the woods in 1997.

With 13 episodes, the big BBC show takes a healthy adventure camp and gives it a wicked spin.

Kaz runs away from the base during the night, which causes three other children to chase her, but they find something strange in the woods.

Maiya shared a photo of herself and co-stars Scarlett Rayner and Krish Misra on the set of Saturday Mash Up Live which mother Rita proudly retweeted, telling her 492k followers to ‘follow’.

Last year, Rita talked about her daughter’s success in an appearance on Lorraine, though she couldn’t give many details.

She told Christine Lampard, who is filling the position of talk show host: “Maiya is away right now. I can’t say where and I can’t say what she’s doing.

“But it wasn’t until March that the movie came out and she was playing a lead role in a TV series, a sci-fi movie.”

Maiya was just 15 years old when she went to film the show, and Rita expressed pride in her daughter’s achievement.

“I am very proud of her,” she said.

“She’s been gone since early May and late September. She just came back. I can’t say more than that.
