Why did Olivia D’Lima, who played Fenisha Khatr on Casualty, leave the show?
CASUALTY viewers were taken aback last weekend when two characters from the BBC One drama were killed off.
Season 35 of Casualty ended on BBC One yesterday night, Saturday, August 7. The series gradually built up to the shocking concluding scenes, which saw fans say their final goodbyes to Fenish Khatr. What, though, is the reason behind Olivia D’Lima’s departure after joining the cast last year?
Fenisha Khatr (Olivia D’Lima) and Ethan Hardy were looking forward to spending the remaining time they had together.
In 2016, Ethan realized he had inherited Huntington’s disease from his mother, so the couple knew they wouldn’t be together forever.
Regardless, they planned to marry, and the wedding day had arrived, much to their delight.
Unfortunately, Fenisha was killed off in the series finale in an unexpected way.
The big profit on a diamond necklace astounded an antiques road trip specialist.
Fenish was running late for her own wedding and had to rely on her ex-boyfriend Matthew Afolami for a ride (Osi Okerafor).
However, as they argued, the automobile drove into the train tracks, trapping her inside.
She was able to flee with the help of Matthew and a witness to the crime, Lev Malinovsky (Uriel Emil Pollack).
Unfortunately, while attempting to return to the platform, Lev was struck and murdered by another train.
Fenisha, on the other hand, lost a lot of blood as a result of the incident and died as a result of her injuries.
It doesn’t appear that actress Olivia D’Lima made the decision to depart the drama.
In order to make an epic season finale storyline, the creators of Casualty decided to write her character Fenisha out of the program.
“We knew there were various ways the story might go, and all I wanted was to make sure Fenisha got a memorable send-off, which she did!” D’Lima told the Metro.
“It would have been unfair for her to quietly slink off after such a dramatic run on the show — she deserved drama till the very end.
“I feel really privileged to have been allowed to portray this lovely love tale and be a part of the season finale of Casualty.”
