Emmerdale: Paige Sandhu explains why Meena won’t kill Theo

While viewers were left wondering if Meena would go as far to kill Theo, actress Paige has explained why Meena didn’t kill him.

Speaking to Entertainment Daily and other media, Paige said: “I definitely think she would kill a child, she has no empathy at all, she doesn’t care. She literally cannot empathise.

“The way that I played that scene was I believe Meena deliberated between just kidnapping Theo or killing him and making it look like an accident, because the benefit of that for her would be that David would never ever be able to forgive Victoria, that means that she would be out of his life.

“But I believe the reason that she didn’t go there is that David would be grieving and that would be really boring and annoying and I’d have to look like I care and so that isn’t that great for me so maybe the best thing is just to kidnap him and bring him back so I can look like the hero.”
