Hollyoaks star praises Harvey Virdi: 'I can't tell you how much I love her'

Hollyoaks actress Eva O’Hara has heaped heavy praise on her colleague Harvey Virdi as the pair work together on emotional scenes for the Channel 4 soap.

Misbah Maalik has opened about the trauma of historic rape and is about to bravely take the step of going to the police.

Meanwhile, Verity Hutchinson is about to discover that her privacy has been violated as part of the Blueberry cyber crime and as it robs her of her confidence and identity, the two storylines will meet.

As Verity goes to war on behalf of Misbah, possibly channeling her own personal experience which she has tried to block out, there are delicate scenes on the horizon.

Eva enthused to Metro.co.uk in an exclusive interview: ‘She’s a sweetheart, I can’t tell you how much I love that woman. She is the embodiment of a woman in control; both character and real life person are the type of woman that I truly aspire to be. Being able to work on something like this with her is so empowering and I am learning from her every day.

‘She really, truly cares about everything she does and getting it right. She really understands the importance of the delicate storylines. It’s a clever melding of the two misogynistic storylines.

‘Verity becomes very passionate about Misbah’s case – I think anyone would. It’s a web of confusion and dead ends so Verity thinks on her feet and makes rather rash decisions trying to help out the situation. It brings things to a halt a bit and makes it more difficult for Misbah.’

Determined for Misbah to get justice, Verity ends up suggesting to Sami and Shaq that they forge evidence to swing the case in her favour.

But excluding Misbah from his dialogue – and a notion she would be totally against – is likely to have serious consequences.

Eva sighed: ‘What’s difficult is that Verity is on the warpath, I can’t lie. Sami tries to get through to her in a level headed way. The issue is that they are not talking to Misbah herself and taking the power out of her hands.

‘They should sit down and listen to her, as the victim. It would have gone so much better.’
