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.
The three closest match-ups in round one of AfterEllen’s March Madness: Best Lesbian/Bi Character Ever competition. Voting is open until tomorrow night at midnight!
