The actress, whose arrival on the soap on Christmas Day came as a surprise to even hardcore fans, hopes her character's scope stretches beyond secret husband Max (Jake Wood), rival Tanya (Jo Joyner) and the rest of the Branning clan.
Film star Wareing suggested Kirsty could become friends with the eccentric Kim Fox as well as clash with Shirley Carter and Kat Slater.
She pondered: "Maybe a night out with Kim would be fun, with us getting really drunk!
"And maybe fight-wise, Shirley. But I think she'd win. And Kat would be good too."
Kirsty Branning has recently befriended Lauren with the ulterior motive of getting closer to Max.
Meanwhile, Max is kicked out of his family home in tonight's (January 22) episode as Tanya discovers his true feelings.
