You may recognise her from Cloud 9, or her various stints on programmes like Holby City and Doctors as well as the BBC adaptation of opera Carmen earlier this year, but now Leicester lass Rakhee Thakrur is heading for the biggest role of her career so far. The 29-year-old actress has landed the part of Shabnam Masood, which was originally held by Zahra Ahmadi. Zara quit the show in 2008, claiming she was frustrated by the lack of storylines given to her character.
