Emmerdale’s Meena actress Paige Sandhu shares unseen behind-the-scenes snap

Emmerdale actress Paige Sandhu has shared a behind-the-scenes snap from Meena’s explosive storyline with Dawn and Billy.

The 25 year old plays serial killer Meena Jutla on the hit ITV soap and in the latest turn of events, she has taken Dawn and Billy hostage on their wedding day.

Paige took to Instagram to share a black-and-white image of her character in her all-black ensemble that she wore to convince Dawn to get into the white limousine.

The soap actress captioned the sleek image “BTS” to her 33,000 followers.

Fans of the hit ITV soap rushed to the comments to commend Paige on her compelling performance as the Dales serial killer.

One follower wrote: “You have got to be one of my favourite actresses you are honestly such a great villain.”

As another added: “Absolutely excellent stuff! The very best actress on the show… without doubt!”

A third echoed: “I didn’t want tonight’s episode to end. You are all absolutely incredible! Can’t wait for the rest of the week.”

One fan even called for Paige to look into Hollywood roles and she penned: “Legend!! I hope you get into Hollywood blockbusters movies you're sooo incredibly talented.”

A fellow supporter added: “What an actress, hope to see you in more similar roles in the future.”

Emmerdale viewers also likened the striking look of a black leather blazer, black turtle neck and a hat to another celebrities outfit.

A fan commented: “Looks like Cheryl Cole where she dresses up for the ‘fight for this love’ video.”

Alison Hammond also likened the chauffeur outfit to Cheryl’s iconic look on This Morning.

Paige’s Emmerdale co-star, Ash Palmisciano, commended her in the comments as he called her “iconic” with a series of clapping hands emoji.

ITV viewers have been captivated by Paige’s portrayal of Meena and even Jay Kontzle who plays Billy on the soap has admitted he’s “scared” of Paige when she’s in “Meena mode.”

He said: “She smashes the role and it's really interesting to watch her do it. You do feel threatened by her. You do actually feel scared of her. You have that fear inside that she's actually quite frightening."

Jay also clarified that Paige could not be more different to her character, he said: "She's not that type of person one bit. It's the complete opposite to how she actually is."

Yet Paige lightened the mood by sharing a behind the scenes video of Olivia Bromley who plays Dawn, Jay and herself in between filming the intense and explosive scenes.

Seen at the viaduct where Dawn and Billy are being held hostage, Olivia says: "Hello everyone, we are in Harrogate and look, I'm going to show you the view! It's so beautiful, it's very cold… apparently it's -3!"

The trio were wrapped up in warm padded jackets and rehearsed their lines for the explosive showdown.
