Better late, really late than never. At the long last we have a brownie making a debut on ER. Show producers never had to go to ER or they would have seen who really has been cleaning up the mess in ERs. Anyway Parminder Nagra of Bend It Like Beckham fame is going to make her debut this season on ER.
She joins the cast of “ER” as third-year medical student Neela Rasgotra in a decidedly less athletic role. “She’s somebody who seems astute, very hardworking and keen to learn,“ says Nagra. “I’d also say that I am somebody who is hardworking and keen to learn — although I do have my lazy days!” [NBC/ER]
Nagra’s other credits include the upcoming film “Ella Enchanted.” She recently completed “Twelfth Night” for UK Channel 4 and also stars in the leading role for the channel’s two-part drama, “Second Generation.” In the United Kingdom, she also appeared in “A&E,” “Donovan Quick” and “Turning World.”
