Goodbyes are never easy, and Priyanka Chopra knows that for a fact. A couple of hours ago, the 35-year-old actress wrote an emotional note on social media about bidding adieu to her Quantico family and her character, Alex Parrish, after three seasons.
As the season ends, I am saying goodbye to Alex Parrish. As you’ll see, her story will come full circle...and that is the best feeling as an actor. Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has (I hope) cracked the door open for female talent and women of color to play leading ladies. Thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me every week! Thank you to the cast and crew of #Quantico for being such an amazing team to work with, for all the memories that I will cherish...memories of laughter, of learning new things, of making friends for life. It was a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I look forward to crossing paths again!
The American Drama series first aired on ABC on the 7th September 2015 and Piggy Chops played an FBI recruit called Alex Parrish, who becomes a prime suspect of a terror attack. Priyanka was the first South-Asian actor to get cast into a major role in an American drama and she says it in her post that her portrayal of Alex Parrish cracked open a door for women of colour in the industry. We do hope that's true and we see more diversity on the small screen.
What's next for Miss Chopra, you ask? She has just wrapped up a movie with Liam Hemsworth, Isn't It Romantic? and she will be shooting for Cowboy Ninja Viking with the handsome hunk, Chris Pratt, of course! She may also be getting married this year to beau Nick Jonas!
Wish you all the best, PC!
