Who is Death in Paradise star Natalie Gumede?

Natalie is a familiar face after a long stay on the popular soap Coronation Street, where she scared the audience with her portrayal of the violent perpetrator Kirsty Soames.

The creepy manipulator left our screens a few years ago. But Kirsty has stuck in the minds of fans of the cobbled street thanks to her portrayal of the creepy figure.

Natalie joined Corrie in September 2011.

Her character became embroiled in a tumultuous relationship with Tyrone Dobbs as a result of a bet with Tommy Duckworth.

The on-screen policewoman was abusive in her relationship with victim Tyrone, physically assaulting and beating him.

The couple had a baby together named Ruby in 2012.

However, things only got worse when Tyrone suggested Kirsty seek custody of her daughter because she left his name on her birth certificate.

But on their wedding day, Kirsty lost the conspiracy after discovering that Tyrone had seen Fiz behind her back.

She found a series of texts between the two that revealed everything.

But Tyrone was brought to justice when Kirsty accused him of attacking her despite his innocence.

However, she eventually showed up in court and confessed to everything.

Natalie left the show in 2013 when Kirsty was taken into custody, and the character was sentenced to 12 months in prison as a result.

Natalie previously indicated that she didn’t want to bring the character back, even if the opportunity arose.

She said, “Would I go back to Corrie if you decide to get Kirsty out of jail? I think my time there was wonderful, but complete. “
