Preeya Kalidas on possible 'EastEnders' return: "She's not dead"

By
Former EastEnders actress Preeya Kalidas has described working on the show as one of her "best jobs", but would not be drawn on whether she would return to the soap in the future.

The 32-year-old, who played Amira Masood, bowed out of the BBC soap last year after her husband Syed admitted that he was in love with Christian.

She told This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that it was "fantastic being part of a storyline that was so controversial", adding: "I think it related to so many people and it provoked so much debate and I loved playing her and having the chance to play so much drama and have so much fun with the cast."

Asked by Willoughby if she would ever consider going back to the soap, Kalidas commented: "Well, she's not dead," adding: "As I said, I had such a great time on EastEnders, it was probably one of my best jobs in the sense that I had the chance to play a great character and also work with some talented actors. We used to laugh a lot."

Kalidas will next be seen in BBC Three's Bollywood Carmen - a live outdoor theatre experience similar to the 2011 production of Frankenstein's Wedding. The show will broadcast on the channel on June 9.
