THE GOOD WIFE actress Archie Panjabi has credited British soap opera actor NICK BERRY with kickstarting her career by responding to her fan mail and offering tips on how to start out in the industry.
The Emmy Award-winning Brit, who emigrated to the U.S. for her role in the hit drama, fell in love with acting after being drawn to longrunning U.K. soap EastEnders because it was the only primetime British TV series to feature an Indian family.
Panjabi wrote to the show's star Berry asking for acting advice and he told her to find herself an agent, and she admits she'd love to meet the actor and thank him in person.
She tells Britain's S magazine, "I was drawn to EastEnders because they had the first Indian family, so I thought, 'OK, I can make it in TV.' Then Nick Berry turned up and I went through a phase of writing to him. I said that I really wanted to make it as an actor and asked how to do it. He said to buy (industry magazine) The Stage and get an agent from that, so that's exactly what I did. He was a huge influence on me - I'd love to meet him one day."
