Fans bid a sad farewell to Lily this weekend as her character said goodbye to Holby for a new job in Hong Kong.
For actress Crystal Yu, who played her for four years the decision to go was not an easy one. Speaking to holby.tv she said ‘When I told them that I was leaving, I was devastated. I cried my eyes out because I would have very happily stayed on for another year or two. I loved the show and did get on with everyone really well.’
‘When I was doing the last episode that has just been aired, the director and I talked about how for Lily to leave the hospital she had to break her own heart and leave Iain and that was very much like me when I had that conversation to leave Casualty – I had to break my own heart.’
Check out some of Lily’s memorable moments…
