‘EastEnders’ Cast Film 15 Different Endings To Lucy Beale Murder Storyline, Says Soap Star Jake Wood

‘EastEnders’ producers are filming as many as 15 endings to the Lucy Beale ‘whodunit?’ storyline to keep information about exactly who was behind her murder as secret as possible.

The character, played by Hetti Bywater, was killed off earlier this year, though viewers didn’t get to see how she died or, more importantly, which Albert Square resident it was that did the deed.

Jake Wood, who plays Max Branning on the soap and is one of several suspects behind Lucy’s murder, admitted that neither he nor any of his castmates had any idea who the killer was, during an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain’ on Monday morning.

He explained: “I genuinely don’t know. I think there’s about four people in the world who know at the moment. I’m certainly not one of them.”

And anyone with a suspicion about which ‘EastEnders’ character is the culprit will have a long time to wait before they find out whether or not they’re right, as the storyline won’t be resolved until February 2015 as part of the soap’s 30th anniversary celebrations.

Jake also revealed that a number of different outcomes will be filmed to keep people on their toes, saying: “We’ll probably film those episodes about Christmas time. Even then, they have done it where they still won’t tell the rest of the cast.

“I spoke to Dominic, our boss – he said they’re going to film about 15 different endings. So again we might just find out on the night it goes out.”

Max is one of many ‘EastEnders’ characters potentially involved in Lucy’s murder as he was in a secret relationship with her before she died, and in the weeks before her death they had a blazing row which culminated in her falling and getting injured.

In last Friday’s episode, viewers even saw Max deleting CCTV footage of their argument to stop himself looking suspicious.

  • Lauren Branning Motive: BFFL Lucy has been rubbing belly buttons with Lauren’s Dad Max. Enough said.

  • Billy Mitchell Motive: Lucy hasn’t very nice to poor Billy and we reckon he could finally snap and actually react to someone’s mickey-taking for once.

  • Lady Di Motive: This mutt is the shadiest newcomer of them all, just look at that face. There’s darkness in those eyes, y’know.

  • Whitney Dean Motive: Newcomer Lee Carter chooses Lucy over Whitney, which in Soap world means she has more than enough of a reason to bump off her former pal.

  • Danny Pennant Motive: He bedded and then betrayed Lucy earlier in the year before dashing off – but could he come back and murder the youngster? We’ve seen more ridiculous things happen before.

  • Max Branning Motive: We all felt a bit queasy when it was revealed that Max was Lucy’s secret lover and when we stopped feeling green we released that this HAS to make him suspect number one, surely?

  • Dot Cotton Motive: She’s been lending a sympathetic ear to the residents of E20 for longer than we can remember. Everyone has to crack at some point.

  • Peter Beale Motive: He’s been fed up of coming second to sister for a while now so it’s definitely possible that Peter could finally reach breaking point and get rid of his sister.

  • Phil Mitchell Motive: Has there ever been a murder that Phil isn’t in some way related to? No, exactly.

  • Cindy Williams (Beale) Motive: Cindy reveals a jaw-dropping secret about Lucy just before her shock death, perhaps the pair get involved in a fight with tragic consequences?

  • Tracey Motive: Well, it’s about time she got a proper story line, isn’t it? Also, we’ve definitely seen her giving Lucy the evil eye occasionally.

  • Ian Beale Motive: He’s has to listen to Lucy’s whining, deal with her problems and clear up her mess for the last 20 or so years. How many more trials can their father-daughter relationship take?

  • Mick Carter Motive: Danny Dyer’s characters always kill people. We’ve seen his films and reckon Danny must make sure there’s a murder plot in store before signing up to any project.

  • Aleks Shirov Motive: We’ve already seen his nasty side but we think there’s more to this shady character, who is currently dating Roxy Mitchell. A definite one to watch.

  • Lee Carter Motive: The newest addition to the Square wasted no time in bedding Lucy and hooking up with Whitney. He’s an ex-Army lad so he could probably take down the young business woman – and stay calm enough to clear up the mess afterwards.
