Petra Letang is a British actress, probably best known for her role as Naomi Julien in the BBC soap opera EastEnders and Adele Effanga in Holby City.
Letang grew up in east London, and attended the Anna Scher Theatre school in Islington, London. She has played Donna Lewis in the Channel 5 soap Family Affairs in 1999, and the character Pauline in the BBC2 drama Babyfather in 2002. Other television credits have included Jonathan Creek (2004), The Bill (2005) and The Last Detective (2005). She also appeared in the British film Wondrous Oblivion in 2003.
In 2005, Letang was cast as Naomi Julien — the lesbian lover of Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) — in BBC’s EastEnders. She left the role in 2007, reportedly because scriptwriters had “run out of ideas for her”. Prior to this, Letang had gone public with her fears that her character would be axed following a “bad public reaction” to the lesbian storyline that saw Naomi break up the marriage of Sonia and Martin Fowler (James Alexandrou).
