Last week, fans saw Emily depart the village after discovering that half-sister Jacqui McQueen (Claire Cooper) could not provide her with a kidney transplant because she was not a match. Jacqui, meanwhile, was left devastated as she realised that her sibling wanted nothing more to do with her.
In an interview with The Star, Henstridge confirmed that she would like show bosses to revisit the character of Emily in the future.
She commented: "What's good is they seemed quite positive about the role and I'd love to go back, so I'm hoping the character worked and maybe they'll want me again.
"It was so much fun on set. I was a little intimidated because you're looking at some of the older characters and thinking, 'I used to watch you when I was at school. You've been in my living room and not even known it', but everyone's so friendly, they put you at ease straight away."
The actress confirmed that she has not yet been recognised by Hollyoaks fans on the street, adding: "But then if I was, that would be quite insulting. I was playing someone who was really ill and pale so I'm not sure being recognised would be a compliment!"
Viewers saw Jacqui tie the knot with boyfriend Rhys Ashworth (Andrew Moss) following the departure of Emily and dad Billy.
