Emmerdale star Susan Cookson has revealed that she felt very sorry for co-star Jonny McPherson after bosses told them that their respective characters were to have an affair.
The actress, who plays Wendy Posner on the ITV soap told Metro.co.uk that she had told bosses that she ‘wanted a challenge’ of a storyline, but was left speechless when she told what exactly that storyline would entail.
‘I felt sorry for Jonny [who plays Liam],’ she told us on the red carpet of the Inside Soap Awards. ‘I’d been like: “I want a challenge”.
‘Then they called me in for the meeting and I was like: “Okay. Maybe that’s not quite the challenge I was looking for. Poor Jonny! But I’m going to embrace it for the older woman!”‘
An actual queen.
Jonny was quick to interject, saying that both he and Susan had ‘such a great time’ acting out the storyline, with Susan adding that the Liam Cavanagh star is ‘very good’ at what he does.
‘He’s very naughty!’ she exclaimed. ‘He’s got such a naughty twinkle. When I think of some of those scenes, I don’t know how we got through it!’.
Emmerdale fans were left in absolute shock earlier this year when Wendy and Liam embarked on an affair, which became the subject of village gossip when all was revealed.
Wendy put an end to the relationship, citing her desire to remain with Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) as the reason why, though there is still some conflict between the couple due to the affair becoming public knowledge.
But will they be able to get through this? Or are Wendy and Liam destined to reunite?
We’ll just have to wait and see!
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
