Ever since his affair with Chas became public knowledge, Cameron has had the mark of Cain upon him.
Now, Cain isn’t a man renowned for letting matters drop, so is Cameron a worried man?
“He’s not necessarily scared of Cain,” says Dominic Power, who plays Cameron, “but just wants whatever it is he’s going to do to be over and done with. At the moment, he’s not sleeping and he’s drinking too much coffee and whiskey. He’s a shadow of his former self.”
Next week, the ante is upped after Debbie makes a prison visit and learns that Chas and Cameron were planning on leaving together. The fact that Cameron loves Chas and not her comes as quite a surprise:
“He’s loyal to Chas,” Power admits. “They’ve all they’ve got for each other now. She has to get out of prison as far as he’s concerned. If he puts himself in the frame, then he is up for murder, which will mean a life sentence for Cameron. Chas could get away with self defence and get off – that’s what he’s hoping for.”
In the short term though, Cameron must deal with a reprisal from Cain, who goes from homicidal stares to throwing punches.
