Parminder Nagra Biography, Wiki

The 46-year-old actress grew up in Leicester and made her first TV debut in 1994, with a role in the medical drama Casualty.

DI Ray is Parminder’s first leading TV drama role, and the star expressed the challenges that come with that.

During Friday’s edition of The One Show, she said: ‘In this, we were shooting four episodes so four hours of the TV all in one go. So in the morning, you could be doing something for episode four and in the afternoon you could be doing something from episode one.

‘So just trying to get my brain around that and having to constantly keep asking the script supervisor “where did I just come from now or did that thing happen to me?”‘

She continued: ‘So just keeping the track of that and making sure you’re endpoint was a challenge but hopefully we did it.’

Parminder got married in 2009 to James Stenson with whom she shares a child.

In 1997, Nagra appeared in the three-part drama Turning World alongside Roshan Seth. The following year, she appeared on Casualty again. In 1999, she played a convenience store clerk in the television film Donovan Quick, opposite Colin Firth.

Also of note were appearances on the British comedy Goodness Gracious Me. Nagra also co-starred in radio plays including, among others, plays by Tanika Gupta.
