Emmerdale star Fiona Wade has signed a new one-year contract with the drama.
The 33-year-old joined the soap as Jai and Nikail Sharma's sister, Priya Sharma, in November last year.
She told the Daily Star Sunday: "I've just signed a one-year contract, which I'm absolutely delighted about.
"It means they can plan lots of things for me, which is very exciting."
Hinting at what's in store for her character, she added: "There's lots more coming up involving her brothers which I'm really looking forward to.
"That's the thing about Priya. She lives her life exactly how she wants and is a bit of a whirlwind for them.
"They can't control what she does and she's incredibly feisty."
Wade hinted that there may be a "love interest" in the future for Priya.
She said: "She had that thing with Cain Dingle the last time she was in the village, which really didn't go down too well with her brothers."
Priya was first seen in the village back in 2009 when she was played by Effie Woods.
