Parminder Nagra plays Dr Sarinda Khatri.
Who is Dr Khatri?
She’s a very passionate, determined brilliant person in terms of science. I think that probably sways her more than what might be going on emotionally. She’s very focused on what she needs to do and achieve and she comes from having solved something like an Ebola crisis to wanting to help with what’s going on in this small town.
What did you see in your role that appealed to you?
I only saw the first three scripts of this season before coming out to shoot and what actually spoke to me was the fact that I couldn’t tell exactly where she was going and I liked the prospect of playing somebody I didn’t know too much about before joining the series. I was just totally inspired by speaking to Simon Donald and wanted to come on board for the ride and see where he would take her.
What did you make of the world of Fortitude?
Mad. I thought the world was just a little bit off the wall, which I loved for some reason. I don’t know if that says more about me – it just appealed to me.
Does Khatri walk a fine line in the way that she does things?
I think for everybody else in Fortitude it might be a fine line, but I think for Khatri it’s just trying to get to the heart of what’s going on. I think she sees the bigger picture and for her everybody else really isn’t seeing the bigger picture.
And what are your reflections on being a part of the series?
I’ve honestly loved being a part of this world and more than anything just playing with the different actors that have been involved. I’ve enjoyed really being able to dig my teeth into something as an actor and I think it’s everything I thought it would be.
