Anjli Mohindra SFX Interview

By Mark
SFX have recently posted an interview with Anjli Mohindra on their website. In the interview Anjli talks about how she felt joining the cast of The Sarah Jane Adventures, her character Rani and much more. Two spoiler free quotes from the interview can be seen below;

On joining the cast:
“It’s been really great, because sometimes when you come into a show everyone’s already all tight in a performed group and you feel a bit intimidated but absolutely not at all. I completely feel part of the team, and it’s just fantastic coming into a group of mates that are already formed but welcome other people in as friends.”

On whether she’s seen the series before:
“Well, it is a lot younger than my age range because I’m 18, but I have seen it on TV a few times and got a lot more into it as I found about the auditions. At first I didn’t actually know how popular it was, until you watch a bit more and hear a lot more people talking about it, and you go onto the website and there’s forums and loads of stuff going on around it. But yeah, I thought it was great, because with children's TV it’s normally quite patronising, but not with this at all. There’s no ‘moral of the day’ at the end of every story, it’s just completely the same as Doctor Who, and adults can watch it as well, which I thought was great.”

You can read the whole interview here but please be aware that it does contain spoilers. The Sarah Jane Adventures series two will air next month on CBBC and also star; Elisabeth Sladen, Tommy Knight, Daniel Anthony and Yasmin Paige.
