Tanya Franks

Tanya Franks is a British stage and screen actress. Before appearing in the long-running British television show "The Bill" as DI Rowanne Morell, Tanya appeared in the soap opera "Family Affairs", playing lesbian mother Karen Ellis. Tanya played Karen in the BBC Three comedy Pulling.

In 2006, Franks wrote, produced (via her company, Stock-pot Productions), and starred in "One Day", a short film shown at several international film festivals. In addition to Franks, the film starred Tim McInnerny as well as Toby Stephens (in a small part). [Stock-pot Productions Limited, Blog. [http://www.stockpotproductions.co.uk/] ]

It was announced on 3 July 2007 that Franks would play the role of Tanya Branning's sister Rainie Cross in the BBC soap opera EastEnders for a week-long stint, first appearing as Rainie on 2 August 2007. Rainie returned to EastEnders on 7 January 2008.

In May 2008, Stock-pot Productions, Franks' company, announced it was producing a feature-length film, "Fly Me", to be written by Franks and directed (as was "One Day") by James Barriscale. Toby Stephens is to have a lead role, and the film will also co-star Tim McInnerny. [Stock-pot Productions Limited, Blog, May 27, 2008. [http://www.stockpotproductions.co.uk/] ]
