Do you have fond memories of your time working on HOLBY CITY?
Did you enjoy playing the character of Keri? What were your most memorable storylines/ moments to film?
I enjoyed my first year as Keri very much and my second year less so. Although the rape storyline was very memorable to film and was in my 2nd year.
Can you remember your first scene/ words filming on HOLBY CITY? Were you nervous when you first joined the show?
I think my first scene was one where my car had broken down and my car had actually broken down on my way in so yes I was nervous!
Do you still keep in touch with any cast members from HOLBY CITY?
Not really but it’s always great to bump into them and catch up from time to time.
Did you take any keepsakes with you from your time on the show?
Some clothes and shoes and my name tag.
Do you ever watch the show now?
What have you been up to since leaving HOLBY CITY?
Getting married and having a baby. Filmed two series of ‘The Giblet Boys’. I am currently packing my life up for a move to the USA where I hope to continue working.
You’ve appeared in children’s TV show ‘The Giblet Boys’ which is of stark contrast to HOLBY CITY – was this a fun show to work on?
The Giblet Boys was immense fun. I loved it! I have very fond memories of the whole thing especially because I was able to shoot Series 2 eventhhough I was seven months pregnant.
Did being in HOLBY CITY increase your medical knowledge in any way? Would you be a good person to have around in an emergency?
No I gathered no real knowledge. I would be OK in an emergency involving my son though.
