Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) was very busy in last night’s episode of Emmerdale, trying to work out how to make next week’s court case go her way.
We opened the episode with Meena in her cell, pleased when a new prison guard turned up.
Meena glanced at the prison guard and was very happy, telling him ‘Oh! That’s more like it. You’re a vast improvement on Officer Redwood. I’m a sucker for a pretty boy!’
The prison guard told Meena that she can’t speak to him like that, but his comments didn’t really bother the serial killer.
He was only on screen briefly, but many fans recognised the actor, Dean Smith.
‘#Emmerdale I’m a bit late with this, but was that prison guard who spoke to Meena the same guy who played Phillip Ryan in Waterloo Road?’, one fan questioned on Twitter.
omg philip ryan! #emmerdale
#Emmerdale Iâm a bit late with this, but was that prison guard who spoke to Meena the same guy who played Phillip Ryan in Waterloo Road ?
To answer his question, yes, Dean Smith is known for his role as Phillip Ryan in BBC One’s Waterloo Road.
He’s also appeared in Last Tango in Halifax, and played DS Yates in Hollyoaks.
That’s not all.
Meena’s defence barrister, Milligan, is played by Amy Robbins.
Amy is known for her roles in Doctors, Holby City and Casualty, and she also played Karen Taylor’s (Lorraine Stanley) girlfriend, Caren, in EastEnders.
Amy is also the sister of actress, singer and songwriter Kate Robbins.
