Arin Smethurst has joined the cast of Casualty in the role of Sah – the medical drama’s first transgender character in a continuing role.
“I’m honoured to be joining the Casualty family as a shiny new paramedic! I’m excited to portray this transgender, non-binary, salty but fiercely compassionate character and hope they are not only well-received, but also a source of awareness for those who have never met someone like me. I can’t wait for you to meet Sah!” – Arin Smethurst
Sah will be working with Jan (Di Botcher), ‘Teddy’ (Milo Clarke) and Iain (Michael Stevenson) as part of the paramedic team.
They are described as a ‘cool character who never wants to be seen to be trying too hard’.
They are also reticent when it comes to showing their feelings, but Jan suspects that there is more to Sah than their chilly exterior suggests.
“Sah will get themselves into all sorts of professional adventures whilst masking their own personal sorrow. In a world where our privacy is something to be treasured, will Sah be able to keep theirs?” – Deborah Sathe, Senior Executive Producer of Casualty
Casualty fans can expect to see Sah – and acting newcomer Arin who graduated from Rose Bruford last year – on their screens later this month.
