Meet Nancy Carter, Himesh Patel On-Screen Wife
BBC Soap EastEnders fans were introduced to Nancy Carter when Nancy is about to marry Wayne Ladlow (portrayed by Malachi Kirby) in Watford. Actress Maddy Hill performs the role of Nancy in episodes 4775/4776 on 1st January 2014. As of 2022, Nancy appeared in a total of 411 episodes with the last appearance being on 23 June 2022.
Full name Nancy Michaela Carter, she is the daughter of Mick and Linda Carter, sister of Lee, Johnny, and Ollie Carter, and half-sister of Frankie Carter and Annie Carter, as well as the ex-wife of Tamwar Masood. All throughout, Nancy has been working as a barmaid.
The actress Maddy’s casting was announced on 29 October 2013. Maddy said, “I feel incredibly privileged to have been given such an amazing opportunity and I can’t wait to start work with such a talented cohort of actors. Nancy is described as a stubborn and fiery 21-year-old tomboy that is a disappointment to her mother. However, she is also an “extremely caring and loyal friend” although she brings trouble with her. Hill described Nancy as “boisterous”, a “total tomboy” and “pretty good at sports”.
Maddy opined that the storyline involving Wayne, and his subsequent exit scenes were “too satisfying to film”. She said, Nancy is not too bothered about Wayne at this point. She knows her parents don’t like him so Nancy was basically just vying for their attention. In any case, I think that Nancy’s always known she was too bright for Wayne”. Khali Best, who plays Dexter Hartman, has stated that he has “got a lot of stuff coming up with Nancy”, opining that the two characters “would work well”, however, Hill has played this down saying, “I’ve been asking Dom [Treadwell-Collins] to tell me what is going to happen, but he won’t say anything”.
Did Himesh Patel And Mandy Hill Ever Date?
While Himes Patel and Mandy Hill never dated in real life although their character Nancy Carter and Tamwar Masood married in the show. It is unclear if Maddy is single or in a relationship because she prefers to keep her private life out of the public eye. She does spend a lot of time with her friends and family, but there aren’t any pictures of them together on her Instagram.
Is Himesh Patel Married In Real Life?
Yes, Himesh Patel is a married man and a father of at least one child. According to New York Times, he shot Station Eleven‘s episode 9: A scene in a makeshift birth center, in which Jeevan becomes a birthing partner to a handful of women, the episode was filmed less than three months after Patel had watched his own wife give birth to their daughter.
“I was in the early months of being a father and not knowing the ins and outs of how to do it when we shot that,” he said to the outlet. “It was so easily accessible because I was going through it.”
Himesh Patel Relationship Status
According to The Times.Co.UK, Himesh Patel lives in North London where he lives with his wife and their 20-month-old daughter. So, yes he is still reportedly married.
Does Himesh Patel Have A Daughter?
Yes, Himesh Patel is a father to a daughter. Matilda Lawler, who plays young Kirsten on Station Eleven, said she saw a change in Himesh after his daughter was born. “He had more of a fatherly presence” in their relationship, she said. (She had advice for him, too, she said: Learn how to braid hair, stat.)
In an interview with The Journal, an interviewer asked if somehow Station Eleven ushered him towards fatherhood.
“Almost certainly,” he says, “because there’s a practicality to being a parent. Can I afford this? Can I take care of this child? When Station Eleven came along, I’d finished Yesterday. I was shooting Tenet, but I didn’t know what was next. This job meant we’d be OK for a bit. My partner and I talked about having a baby and went, ‘OK, let’s dive in.’”
So without Station Eleven, he might not be a father? “Ultimately, it was an emotional decision, but coming from the background I come from [Patel grew up the son of two Indian newsagents in a small village in Cambridgeshire], there was this thing about how you can’t be led by your heart. It’s got to be practical as well.”
When Himesh’s daughter was three weeks old, Patel flew to Boston to shoot his other new project, Netflix’s climate satire and likely Oscar contender Don’t Look Up, directed by Mr Adam McKay (The Big Short, Vice). He plays a supporting role as Lawrence’s boyfriend. One of the highlights was shooting an improvised scene on the street with Lawrence.
