Holby City news: Jemma Redgrave joins Keller

jemma redgraveThere’s going to be an interesting new addition to the Holby City cast early in the new year. Jemma Redgrave will play general surgeon Bernie (Berenice) Wolfe. Executive Producer Oliver Kent says, “When we dreamed up the character of Bernie Wolfe, we immediately thought of Jemma Redgrave and we were utterly thrilled when she agreed to join the Holby Company.”

Jemma has extensive previous fictional medical experience – from 1995-89 she played Dr Eleanor Bramwell in the TV series Bramwell, which was set in the Victoria era, and more recently she was Dr Zoe Evans in Frankie. She’s looking forward to getting her hands on a scalpel: “It will be great to be practicing medicine again, on one of the BBC’s flagship dramas,” she says. “I am so happy to be joining the cast.”

Bernie Wolfe is described as being a feisty general surgeon with battlefield experience – which will obviously come in handy for all the various power struggles she’s bound to come across in Holby. Oliver Kent says, “Bernie Wolfe will be a force to be reckoned with and I can’t wait to see her locking horns with our established regulars on the wards.”

    I wonder if this means Ric is leaving for good?
