EASTENDERS star Davood Ghadami has opened up about not wanting to watch Kush’s grisly murder scene.

Speaking of the dramatic scenes, the 38-year-old actor said being on the soap had given him “a lot of happy memories”.
But the star admitted he would “miss his [character] greatly” and knew he would struggle to watch his final, dramatic scene.
“I’m not even sure I’m going to be able to watch it,” Davood explained. “I hope it surprises a few people because I don’t think people are expecting it.
“The way and manner in which he leaves the show will hopefully be memorable for people and they’ll be able to look back on it as a real shocking moment.”Kush was pushed in front of a train[/caption]
Davood, who is set to star in Holby City, said he will likely “have to watch” Kush’s dying scene as it will “put it to bed” before he moves on.
“I can’t not see it,” the star, who will take on Eli Ebrahmi’s character, added. “It’ll be nice in a way to put Kush to bed and do it on a bit of a high.”
Davood admitted he was “sad to see Kush go” and despite wanting to move onto other things in his career, had no hard feelings against the soap.
“I’ve loved every minute of playing the character,” she said. “I have really enjoyed being part of that final storyline.Davood is due to join the cast of Holby City[/caption]
“My time over the six and a half years has culminated in something that people will remember.
“When you leave a show like this and the doors open, that question can stay over you for a very long time, but this is very definitive, of course, and I’m happy with that.”
Davood went out on a career high thanks to the “exciting” scenes, which required “specifically made sets” to make it appear real.
“To be part of something like that, that bold and that different was a real privilege and a nice way to end my time on EastEnders,” he concluded.The actor will take on Eli Ebrahmi’s character[/caption]
Davood has played beloved market trader Kush from 2014, but recently revealed that he was leaving the show.
His alter-ego has got himself caught up in some trouble with the Mitchells after he agreed to take the blame for a car heist back in November 2020.
Last night Kush pleaded guilty to the crime, but also told the court that Phil, Ben and Shirley Carter were involved too – which they aren’t very pleased about.
At the end of the episode, Kush returned home to his girlfriend Whitney, and explained that he couldn’t go through with it because he wanted to be with her forever.

However, he made it clear that they would only be able to be together if they moved away from the Mitchells and Albert Square.
Although it’s not known what is in store for Kush and Whitney’s relationship it’s been revealed that Davood has already filmed his final scenes for the hit show.
But lucky for his fans, it won’t be long before he’s back on our screens.
Davood is set to play Holby’s new consultant cardiothoracic surgeon, Eli, who is described as “excitable, passionate and exploding with energy”.
Speaking out about his new role, the actor said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining such a brilliant show.”
