Casualty spoilers follow.
Casualty star Amanda Henderson has opened up on her shock exit from the BBC medical drama this week.
Yesterday (March 18), long-serving ward nurse Robyn Miller finally exited the show after 10 years in a dramatic twist, having left viewers on a cliffhanger for an entire week.
Robyn was set to leave the soap, moving to Wigan with her partner Paul and daughter Charlotte but after a series of unfortunate events was caught in a road traffic accident. Things looked up for fans however when Holby City's Sacha Levy was drafted in to help. But after the surgeon's best efforts, the life-saving surgery posed to be too challenging, and Robyn died on the operating table.
The actor shared a tribute to her time on the show via social media, posting an image for Instagram followers captioned with: "10 years of you Robyn! It's been a pleasure."
Posted around the time her final episode aired, the image showed a TV set clapper board with pictures of herself alongside Jason Durr as David Hide and Shaheen Jafargholi as Marty Kirby, with "End of an era" written on it. The two nurses also left the soap in the same episode.
Cast members, fans and friends commented, sharing love and admiration for the star. Former Casualty star Sunetra Sarker (who played Zoe Hanna in the soap between 2007 and 2018) said: "Aww, I remember day 1. Sending loads of love".
Joe McFadden (who appeared in Casualty for a few episodes between 2007 and 2009 but starred as Raffaello Di Lucca in Holby City between 2014 and 2020) added: "Was the audience who had the real pleasure. Good luck in all you do."
James Ryan, who is currently in Coronation Street, said: "Huge congratulations pal. What a legacy! Big love."
Henderson is yet to reveal what her next project is.
Casualty airs on Saturdays on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
