Al­i­cya’s first love is act­ing, but food is close be­hind…

Inside Soap - - SOAP BOX -

If she ever de­cided to re­tire from act­ing, star Al­i­cya won’t be rest­ing on her lau­rels – she al­ready has a sec­ond ca­reer on the go.

The tal­ented ac­tress is also a great chef – and co-man­ages a café in Lon­don’s East Dul­wich. She tells us that work­ing with food is an­other way for her to ex­press her cre­ative streak.

“I’m at an age where I’m think­ing about the other things I want to do – and I’ve al­ways wanted my own café,” re­veals Al­i­cya. “I tend to pick a cui­sine and re­ally study the ba­sics of it.”

Al­i­cya isn’t kid­ding be­cause she in­forms us that she used to recre­ate a fa­mous TV cook­ing show in her kitchen. “Me and my pal used to play Ready

Steady Cook!” she laughs. “She would give me a few items, and I’d come up with a dish. Put me in a kitchen with my mu­sic on, and that’s my happy place!”
