Emmerdale's new villain Meena Jutla came to life after brutally murdering Leanna Cavanagh a few weeks ago and it looks like she won't be taking a step back from her killing spree anytime soon.
In a recent interview with OK! and other media outlets, Paige Sandhu (who plays the cold hearted killer) revealed: "I definitely think Meena would kill a child."
Her comments come after Emmerdale released a teaser clip of an upcoming storyline which suggests baby Theo could be in grave danger.
The upcoming scenes show a furious Meena on the warpath after discovering that boyfriend David Metcalfe has prioritised his son and Victoria Sudgen over her.
Meena proceeds to sneak into Victoria's and pry Theo away from his mother's clutches while she's upstairs checking on Harry. The trailer showed a panicked Victoria say: "I just went upstairs to check on Harry and Theo is gone. I swear the baby gate was closed."
It then cuts to a distressed David running through the village as he shouts and searches for his son. Meanwhile, Meena heads out to the countryside with Theo and menacingly says: "We need to teach naughty daddy a lesson. He won't let Victoria look after you again."
When asked if she thinks Meena had it in her to kill Theo, she confirmed, explaining: "The way I played that scene… I made it look like Meena deliberated between just kidnapping him, and killing him and making it look like an accident."

She continued: "The benefit of that for her would be that David would never be able to forgive Victoria. It’d mean she’d be out of his life."
However, Meena is calculating and Paige revealed that her character would much rather "play the hero" than have to "look like she cared" about David grieving. "That's ultimately why she doesn't go through with it," Paige added.
The young actress – who found out about Meena's dark side as soon as she got the part – knows her character inside out after researching the role well.

She explained: "Female psychopaths – they want admiration, they want appreciation and they want attention. Meena loves to be the centre of attention and to have people loving on her, to have all the compliments. She wants it to be all about her, so playing the hero is her ideal."
Although we don't know when murderous Meena will strike again, it sounds like she definitely will at some point.
And, with Paige admitting she's capable of killing a child, no one in the village is safe.
