Casualty’s Amanda Mealing joins Coronation Street as director

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Casualty’ star Amanda Mealing is joining ‘Coronation Street’ as a director.
The 54-year-old actress – who played Connie Beauchamp in BBC medical dramas ‘Casualty’ and ‘Holby City’ for 18 years – is reportedly moving to the ITV soap but will remain behind the camera.
According to The Sun, Amanda will direct a block of ‘Coronation Street’ episodes.
Although Amanda has yet to confirm the news, she did hint at her new role when she tweeted about Queen Elizabeth visiting the set of ‘Coronation Street’ recently.
She wrote: “Well, not often HRH herself pops in to my work! Ha!”
Meanwhile, Amanda – who joined ‘Casualty’ in 2014, having already played Connie in ‘Holby City’ – announced in March that she was quitting the show.
She said: “It has been the most remarkable privilege to play Connie for the last 18 years.
“When she first hit our screens there were few female leads that weren’t ‘the wife of…’, ‘the mistress of…’ or needed ‘rescuing’.
“Most important for me is knowing that Connie has inspired so many women and young girls to seek careers, seek independence and strive to be their best.”
Senior Head of Content Production for ‘Holby City’ and ‘Casualty’ Deborah Sathe paid tribute to Amanda saying: “We are going to miss Amanda playing chief of the ED Connie. Connie has led the ED, her team, and our Casualty audience through COVID.
“The quest to restore ‘Casualty’ to our screens was not an easy one, and we owe a huge debt to Amanda and the whole team for delivering some of the most extraordinary episodes ‘Casualty’ has ever broadcast.
“We look forward to welcoming Connie back onto our screens in due course.”
