As Priyanka Chopra bid farewell to her leading role as Alex Parrish in Quantico, she hoped that her appearance on the show opened doors for women, especially those of colour to land lead roles in American TV.

When Priyanka first got the role in 2015, she was praised as the first South Asian to headline an American drama series. Quantico became one of the most watched American shows around the world.  Priyanka even went as far as winning a People’s Choice Award.

In season 3 of Quantico, the last season of the show, her character Alex Parrish came to a full circle. The actress took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the series journey.

“As the season ends, I am saying goodbye to Alex Parrish. As you’ll see, her story will come full circle... and that is the best feeling as an actor. Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has [I hope] cracked the door open for female talent and women of colour to play leading ladies,” Chopra wrote.

“Thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me every week! Thank you to the cast and crew of Quantico for being such an amazing team to work with, for all the memories that I will cherish... Memories of laughter, of learning new things, of making friends for life. It was a pleasure working with each and every one of you, and I look forward to crossing paths again,” she concluded.

Watch the season finale tonight at 20:30, on 1 Magic, Channel 103.
