'EastEnders' actress Preeya Kalidas admits she is proud of working on a storyline which broke so many TV barriers
Preeya Kalidas is proud her 'EastEnders' storyline was "groundbreaking".
The British actress - who portrayed Amira Shah in the BBC One soap - confesses the storyline centred around a gay affair between her on-screen husband Syed Masood (Marc Elliott) and his pal Christian Clarke (John Partridge) was an "amazing opportunity" for her.
Speaking at the world premiere of '22.214.171.124' at the Empire Leicester Square Cinema on Tuesday (25.05.10), Preeya told BANG Showbiz: "I definitely think we broke some barriers. I've been part of some amazing projects that we have done which are groundbreaking - so it's great to be part of a storyline such as the Amira, Syed, Christian triangle."
The pretty actress - who is now launching a pop career - also claims shooting her emotional final scenes on the soap was tough.
She said: "The final scenes were emotional and traumatic because it was also my last day of filming in the show so there were some real tears. But I loved being part of such a fantastic storyline, it was great working with such amazing actors and the effect that it had on the public watching, we've had a really great response."
