Rebecca Ryan says goodbye to Casualty

Rebecca Ryan has said goodbye to ‘Casualty’ and heaped praise on the cast and crew in an emotional message.
The 28-year-old actress made her final appearance as Gemma Dean during the double episode series finale over the weekend after two years on the medical show, and she described her tenure as "the most amazing time".
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "It’s my last episode today on @BBCCasualty I had the most amazing time being on this show and met the most incredible people!!
"One of the best shows to work on!! Thanks to everyone!! Hope you enjoy the feature length show tonight!! It’s a good one (sic)"
Her former co-star Michael Stevenson (Iain Dean) was among those to offer kind words on social media.
He cheekily quipped: "The most incredible ‘PEOPLE’! Bloody predictive text obvs meant to write ‘PERSON’! It was lovely to meet you too! (sic)"
Gemma’s exit saw Rebecca’s alter-ego decide to leave Holby and join her boyfriend Rash Masum (Neet Mohan) overseas.
Unfortunately for the character, their reunion abroad looks to be short-lived as Rash will be back on the small screen on Saturday’s (17.08.19) episode.
Despite Neet’s impending return, it has been confirmed that Rebecca has shot her final scenes with no plans in place for a comeback.
Although it’s not yet known what brings Rash back to Holby, it doesn’t look like there is a happy ending for the on-screen couple.
Over the weekend, viewers also saw the departure of Amanda Mealing’s alter-ego Connie Beauchamp, who is set to return in 2020.
