Playing Imogen Parker in the BBC One series back in 2013, Pearl said she was disappointed by the news and didn’t understand why Holby City is being cancelled.
‘I’m a real lover of soaps and I think that kind of television really helps to bring audiences together’ she told Express.co.uk.
‘They can explore things through those shows in a really interesting way because the audiences are so large. I think it is a real shame that any show like that is cut short’.
Since appearing in Holby, Pearl has gone on to feature in BBC One’s drama I May Destroy You and the BBC Two comedy Motherland.
Holby City’s cancellation was announced back in June. The statement from the BBC that was released at the time read:
‘We are incredibly proud of Holby City but it’s with great sadness that we are announcing that after 23 years, the show will end on screen in March of next year.
‘We sometimes have to make difficult decisions to make room for new opportunities and as part of the BBC’s commitment to make more programmes across the UK, we have taken the difficult decision to bring the show to a close in order to reshape the BBC’s drama slate to better reflect, represent and serve all parts of the country’.
Since the news broke, fans are campaigning to save the show.
A petition that was created moments after the cancellation was announced has over 40,000 signatures.
