Heather Peace talks “Waterloo Road” and her new album in the works

Heather Peace has had quite a successful career, but the actress really stole our collective lesbian heart on the Scottish television series Lip Service as DS Sam “Hot Cop” Murray, a police detective who was both tough and tender. While the series was not renewed after its second season, Heather Peace has continued to stay on our radar in a big way. A singer/songwriter to boot, Heather released her album Fairytales in 2012, which was followed by a sold out concert tour of the UK and Australia. The out actress currently stars on the popular BBC1 series Waterloo Road as teacher Nikki Boston, who also happens to be a lesbian. Waterloo Road just kicked off its tenth season and Heather took some time to chat with us about her character Nikki, and her brand new album due out this spring.

Heather Peace fans, this is all you.

Pssst! We have all the episodes of Lip Service on our site. Seasons 1 and 2, including tonight’s finale!

Sadie and Lauren are in a sex shop, which inspires them to play out roles of a different kind: Sadie is PVC clad and Lauren is dressed as Little Bo Beep. They take their getup and fingers to the changing room which ends in Sadie telling Lauren to “take it bitch or your arse gets the fairy wand.” Which is exactly what the Fairy Godmother said to Cinderella in the original version of the book. - Sarah and Lee
