EastEnders’ original Janine Butcher is now a high-flying Google boss in epic career switch

EASTENDERS' original Janine Butcher is now a high-ranking boss at Google in America.

The scheming character – who is most well known for being played by Charlie Brooks – first appeared on screen in 1989.


She was played by child actress Rebecca Michael from then until 1993. 

Actress Alexia Demetriou played her from 1993 until 1996 before Charlie took over the role and made it into an iconic performance.

And while Charlie has gone on to be a huge success in performing, Rebecca took a different career path and moved into technology.

Rebecca is the director of global marketing for Google Search and augmented reality according to her LinkedIn profile.

She is now based in California, and probably won’t be making a return to acting.
