Rosie is famous for her role as Jac Naylor on Holby City and its sister series Casualty, and was recently written out of both series when the previous show came to an end.
In late March, Holby City fans were devastated when the drama came to an emotional end after 23 years on the show. BBC.
The final episode of the show saw Rosie’s character Jac wake up from a life-or-death operation to remove her brain tumor.
Jac’s last waking moment was seen scenes later, when Sacha tended to her while saying that Elliot had booked her for a scan.
He joked, “You really love me,” and Jac replied, “You know I do,” his voice getting weaker and weaker as he had a stroke, leaving the fan-favorite character brainless.
Fletch later explained to Sacha, Elliot, and Max the decision Jac had made as they fought to save her, saying, “She said if something like this happened, I think she knew something like this was coming and she made up her mind.”
As Sacha and Max broke down in emotional scenes at not being able to save her, Elliot said, “It’s up to Jac. We may not like it, but we have to respect it.”
Holby City fans later learned that Jac had decided to donate his organs, including his heart, lungs, liver, and pancreas, to “make a difference to many lives.”
In the final moments of the show, a voiceover detailed the people who had received Jac’s organ donations, from a medical student to a full-time mother of four.
