Emmerdale star Paige Sandhu says she’s keen to take on more evil roles in the future after playing twisted killer Meena Jutla for nearly two years.
Meena has become one of the soap world’s most powerful villains after her crimes have taken a toll on the entire village. We were captivated not only by her despicable behavior, but also by the way she behaved throughout – with a childlike nature and a penchant for singing along.
And thankfully, we get to see the actress continue in her on-screen wickedness long after Meena’s departure.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk and other media ahead of her final scenes on the soap opera, Paige was asked what kind of characters she would like to play in the future.
When asked how she would feel playing another villain, the actress says, “I definitely want to continue playing villains.”
Good news for us because we hate to miss Paige’s animated performances!
“I love villains,” she continues. “I think they’re just so much fun to play. What’s really fun is that I want to keep playing characters who are completely different from me. Where you can have a lot of fun that’s really challenging and fulfilling, and it doesn’t really matter if you’re a good guy or a bad guy.”
Paige adds that with all the necessary components, she’ll always be interested in playing evil.
“As long as I feel connected to them I can have fun, it’s challenging and really well written and the storyline is fantastic.”
Though open to the kinds of roles she could take on next, Paige reveals there’s a change on the horizon as she leaves Meena behind.
Speaking of her next project, she tells us, “I literally start filming something on Monday, so it’s going to be cool. Then there are other things that have potential, so that’s really exciting. Funnily enough, they’re all tidbits.’
After so brilliantly portraying the role of Meena, it’s going to be quite a transition for Paige – but we can’t wait to see where she’s next on screen!
In the meantime, there’s her Emmerdale exit to get you tuned in – don’t miss Meena’s final goodbye.
