Amanda Mealing on Lorraine

Amanda Mealing appeared on Lorraine this week ahead of her exit from CASUALTY this weekend.

Amanda has played iconic surgeon Connie Beauchamp, first on HOLBY CITY from 2004 – 2010 before moving to CASUALTY in 2014 where she has stayed for over 220 episodes.

She revealed she has played the role of Connie for such a long time ‘because she’s such an incredible gift’ of a character to film.

Talking to the Metro, she also hinted that this may not be the end of Connie, ‘I’m just taking a break! And we’ll talk in a couple of months. I’ve been on the show coming up to 7 years, our schedules are gruelling, 12 hours a day, so when you do that for 7 years with very few breaks it’s tough. Because I direct as well, any holiday I would use to go and direct something else, I haven’t actually had any kind of break for about five years, it just felt like it was a good point to step away for a bit.’

You can catch Amanda Mealing on Friday 2nd April’s edition of Lorraine on ITV Hub.
