'Holby City's Rebecca Grant is leaving the soap to pursue a career in the US.

According to PA, Rebecca's character Daisha Anderson will reportedly get shot, and the experience spurs her to return to the Philippines, where she is from.

The actress said: "It has been the most wonderful two years of my acting career."

She went on: "I'm grateful to the producers for throwing me into the deep end by giving me some of the toughest storylines to work on. All the actors have been great, they have been a dream to work with and have given me the courage to pursue my acting career in the States."

Rebecca has been in the medical drama since March 2008, and will appear for the last time on March 23.
