Do you think Sophie could be in love with Maddie?
I wouldn’t go as far to say that she is in love, but she has very strong feelings for her. Like I said, Sophie loves to help people and the fact that Maddie seems in need of assistance has made Sophie want to be with her even more.
Maddie does have a lot of baggage though – is Sophie capable of handling that?
Definitely. Sophie thinks she can help Maddie and organise her life - or at least that’s what she’d like to do. Maddie having baggage or being troubled doesn’t scare Sophie. She likes the challenge.
Do you think that Maddie could lead Sophie astray?
If Sophie isn’t careful, she could lead her astray. But Sophie is very grounded and has strong morals, so I don’t think it will be an easy thing for Maddie to do. Sophie knows who she is and what she’s about, so hopefully she’ll be able to resist that side of Maddie.
And how do you think Maddie compares to Sophie’s other girlfriends?
She’s completely different to her other girlfriends, but maybe that’s what Sophie needs. Sophie’s always done the chasing and I think she needs to man up a bit. With Maddie, she seems to be able to do that. We’ve seen Sophie call Maddie’s bluff, we’ve seen her get aggressive with Maddie when she stole the watch. And it was nice to see that side of Sophie because she’s usually so saintly.
Are you happy with Sophie’s new romance? And how are you getting on with actress Amy Kelly?
Yes, it’s lovely because I’m busy again and it’s nice to be working with someone new. I love Amy – she’s like my little sister but she’s much cleverer than me. I do feel like I have to look after her, though, because being 18 and in a new job is quite scary. So I’m there for her if she has any questions or just wants a chat.
