holby.tv can reveal that HOLBY CITY actress Olga Fedori is leaving the show.
Fans will be disappointed to learn that Olga, who plays popular nurse-turned-doctor Frieda Petrenko, has finished filming and is due to leave our screens next month, Episode 31.
Olga joined the show in February 2010 and has been involved in a number of storylines including training to be a doctor, Frieda’s father’s death and last Christmas’ episode which took place in Ukraine that saw Frieda face her demons. But it was her character’s portrayal, her blunt cynical manner and witty one-liners that fans will miss most.
Of her departure, Olga confirmed on Twitter and added, ‘Thanks for lovely messages guys. It was time to go elsewhere in life, so thank u Holby for lovely couple of years, and for all the fun!’
