So what does he do to get Tracy to forgive him?
He puts his cards on the table. He speaks the truth and tells Tracy how he feels. There’s a nice scene between them and it’s more heartfelt than we’ve ever seen before. It’s a new chapter for Rob and Tracy from there.
Will Rob ever be in danger of wanting to stray again?
It depends how much Tracy rubs him up the wrong way! He might do it in the future to be spiteful, who knows? It all depends who comes along. But his feelings for Tracy are becoming more and more obvious to him, so I think he’ll be learning from his mistake for the time being.
We know Rob is protective of Carla, so how would he react if he found out about it?
He would initially want to absolutely kill him, but then he would take stock and think of how he could use it against Peter. It would be a big challenge for Rob not to be like a bull in a china shop! And he would need Tracy to pull him back and calm him down.
As time has gone on, we’ve started to see that Rob isn’t all that bad and that he does have a softer side to him. Are you pleased with how the character has developed?
Yes, definitely. When Rob first turned up out of prison, he was a bit of a fish out of water. He didn’t really know how to carry himself. I’m loving the storylines at the minute and I love working with Ali [King], Kate [Ford] and Chris [Gascoyne]. I feel like the character is really bedded in now and that Rob could go in many different directions. I hope viewers like what they’re doing with him.
