Coronation Street is gearing up for a courtroom drama that will see Bethany testify against her abuser Nathan.
Speaking about the dramatic upcoming showdown, Lucy Fallon said: “I actually enjoyed filming it. I like the emotional scenes. Nathan needs to be locked up forever.”
Fallon was speaking to RadioTimes.com on the red carpet at the British Soap Awards, where co-star Christopher Harper also discussed the strength that Bethany finds to speak out:
“The bravery it takes for someone who’s been abused to testify against their abuser is not to be understated. We’re going to be watching Lucy [Fallon] as Bethany take a massive journey. But I’m very pleased that Nathan won’t be around for that.”
As for Nathan’s fate, the actor added: “He’s going down. He’s got to go down. He deserves every minute of sentencing he gets.”
