EastEnders star Nina Wadia takes out her frustrations on-screen!
EastEnders star Nina Wadia, who of course plays feisty mum Zainab Masood, has revealed that one of the things she loves most about her character is that she often portrays her venting her spleen at someone…
And in doing so, Nina finds that her own stresses are alleviated, which her husband, composer Raiomond Mirza is apparently quite pleased about!
Speaking to the PA, Nina said, “It’s great because I don’t take things out on my real husband, I take it out on the fake husbands instead.
“It’s quite therapeutic as far as I’m concerned.”
However, therapeutic or not, Nina – who’s also starred in 2point4 Children, The Vicar of Dibley, Holby City, Murder in Mind and Doctors – would quite like her character to have some happiness for a while, given that last year she suffered one trauma after another, primarily at the hands of evil medic Dr Yusef Khan…
And it seems in forthcoming “much happier” storylines for Zainab, Nina may get her wish.
She said, “I think she needs to move on and be happy again, that would be a bit of fun, but who knows what the year holds.”
Yeah I can’t see things being all plain sailing for the Masoods in any kind of a hurry!
Here’s a reminder of Zainab at her fiery best…
