Fiona Wade Interview
Soaplife’s interview with Fiona Wade
Soaplife: Priya’s dad Rishi is the first to suspect her… Why?
Fiona Wade: “Two days before, Priya had a meltdown… She had a terrible meeting at work, her personal life isn’t great, and she is worried about Amba, as she is not eating. She’s always worried that her eating disorder has affected her daughter and she is very stressed about it. Rishi walked in just after Priya threw the food and saw the mess. He puts two and two together and comes up with six.”
S: How does Priya feel about being suspected?
FW: “She is absolutely devastated. She goes to the hospital to see if Eliza is okay as she thinks she had an epileptic fit. Rishi asks ‘Are you sure this is nothing to do with you?’ and she can’t believe what she is hearing.”
S: Does anybody believe her?
FW: “It’s difficult. Jai knows deep down that she hasn’t done anything, but he has to protect Eliza. Mum Megan Macey has doubts, too but, again, her first instinct is to look out for her daughter. The police and social services get involved and Priya ends up moving out of the family home and leaving the factory!”
S: So she’s feeling vulnerable…
FW: “Yes. Everything has fallen apart since her affair with Pete Barton, who was supposed to be marrying her best friend, Leyla Harding. Now she has no family, no man and no best friend.”
S: What has caused Eliza’s bruises?
FW: “You will have to wait to find out. There is a lot more drama and speculation to come.”
S: How do you feel about this storyline?
FW: “It’s great to have a new story. I’ve had to do some screaming scenes that were tricky. But they kept the kids out of those, so I had to scream at empty chairs! And I would like to see Priya come back fighting and feeling strong again.”
Fiona Wade News
Emmerdale’s Fiona Wade plans to tie the knot with Simon Cotton in October as she reveals she was in floods of tears when he proposed
Fiona – who plays Priya Sharma in the ITV soap – has spoken about plans to tie the knot with Simon Cotton in October.
She opened up about his romantic proposal last month that left her so emotional after Simon got down on one knee at her family home in Hertfordshire.
It’s the place she said she felt closest to her father – who passed away 14 years ago.
Fiona told OK!: “The proposal was perfect. I was in floods of tears. It’s the home I grew up in and I still live there with my mum when I’m not filming. It’s the most special place in the world to me.”
The couple have already started looking at venues for their winter wedding.
Fiona confirmed: “We’ve just started looking at venues. We need to move quickly as we’re hoping to get married in October. I don’t see the point in waiting around, and in my faith people get married quite quickly.”
In keeping with Fiona’s heritage, her mother is Filipina, Simon asked for permission beforehand.
He said: “In the Bahá’í religion it’s important to ask permission from both parents. I asked her mum, who was very excited and I also went to visit her dad’s grave to ask him, too.”
The engagement ring even has sentimental value.
Fiona said: “It’s my mother’s engagement ring, which I’m wearing only because Simon knew I wanted to choose my own ring. We’ve just been to a jewellers in Hatton Garden and had one designed, and I’ll be picking it up soon.”
It looks like the pair cannot wait to start their own family too.
Fiona said: “Meeting Simon has made me want to have children.”
Fiona announced the engagement on Instagram, posting a picture of her nuzzling up to her suited and booted fiance while dressed in a beautiful floor length gown.
She wrote: “Two days ago this beautiful man asked me to be his wife.
“There has never been an easier answer to a question…. Yes! Feel so incredibly blessed.”
