Casualty star Melanie Hill reveals whether she’ll stay on the BBC show

The actor, who has previously starred in Coronation Street and Waterloo Road, is currently playing Siobhan McKenzie in Casualty, which has been off-air for the second week running due to scheduling clashes.

Despite rumours swirling that the actor could leave the show, Melanie has made clear she’s settled within the cast of the BBC medical drama and shows no signs of leaving any time soon.

 

“I’m happy to be part of a team again,” she told The Mirror. “I like seeing everyone every morning and the comfort of knowing I’ve got regular work.

“When I was younger, I enjoyed the feeling of ‘what’s next?’ and meeting new people, but as I’ve got older, I prefer the familiarity. I did Waterloo Road for four years and then Corrie was seven years and hopefully Casualty will be for the next seven.

‘I’m loving the tension between Stevie and Siobhan. @Elinor_Lawless and @MelanieJHil have great chemistry,’ wrote one fan on X, formerly Twitter.

While another said, ‘All I’m going to say is protect Stevie and Siobhan at all costs.’

Meanwhile, another wrote, ‘Siobhan being clinical lead doesn’t make sense ??! #Casualty it’s supposed to be a doctor not a nurse manager?!’

Tune in next week on Saturday 6th July to find out what’s next in store for the residents of Holby ED.
