She has already killed twice (that we know of!) but the bloodshed is not over in Emmerdale as actor Jonny McPherson has confirmed to Metro.co.uk that sinister Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) will kill again, claiming at least one more victim.
Liam Cavanagh is currently broken after the death of his daughter Leanna, who sociopath Meena threw to her death from her bridge but Jonny insisted to us that for now, Liam has no reason to suspect her.
He told us: ‘I mean it’s difficult because Meena also provides Liam with somebody to talk to. She ends up positioning herself to allow him to talk to her.
‘He finds a great deal of solace in Meena’s coldness about everything. It’s kind of a tonic after everyone else’s platitudes and apologies.
‘But Leanna will not be the last victim, that’s for sure!’
Chilling! And Jonny admits that he initially found it hard to lose on screen Mimi Slinger from the show.
He explained: ‘Initially, I was devastated to hear that Mimi was going to be leaving, after the last three years of working together – she is my fake daughter, so sad in that respect.
‘In terms of the actual story, initially I was very intimidated by the prospect of having to depict that level of grief and turmoil, because I’ve never really done much on the soap besides some fairly light-hearted comedy stuff.
‘To be faced with the prospect of portraying a man going through the death of his daughter, it was quite frightening, but it also really kicked me into gear.
‘I thought I needed to work on this as hard as I possibly can, so it’s been wonderful! It’s probably been the most challenging six weeks or so, with the prep and the filming.’
Fans are in agreement that Jonny is nailing it and when we spoke to Mimi, she was full of praise for her on screen father.
And the feeling is clearly mutual.
‘Hugely! But I think the thing that is lovely about it though is Mimi has left the show at exactly the right time he smiled.
‘She’s been on it for three years, she’s eighteen years old. She’s had three years’ experience working on top telly, she’s got as fantastic agent, and she’s just going to go absolutely sky-high, I’m sure of it!
‘She’s going to be the next Jenna Coleman, or something like that. I’ve just real pride in the fact that she worked so hard leading up to her exit.’
But how would the actor like to see justice for Mimi’s character when Meena eventually faces a downfall.
Jonny mused: ‘I don’t know! I suppose it would be interesting if Liam did find out, and what would happen as a consequence. I mean, what would you do in that situation? As a parent of a child who had been murdered by someone, as much as you’d like to rationalise it and have some self-restraint – you’d want the path to lead to justice – at the same time I imagine you’d feel that it is a bit of an eye-for-eye scenario.
‘Somebody who is as reasonable and rational as Liam, competing with an absolute torrent of fury, that would be interesting!’
