Hollyoaks always manage to keep Anna Passey busy in her role as Sienna Blake – whether she is bonkers evil, deeply in love or full of heartbreaking emotion, her life is a rollercoaster.
We know how it feels – it’s a rollercoaster for us fans too. And there’s another curveball on the way in the wake of Brody’s death and Summer’s arrest.
And the actress didn’t see it coming a mile off – so what chance to we have!?
In an exclusive chat with Metro.co.uk, she teased: ‘There’s quite a few shocks on the way in the show and some brilliant moments between now and Christmas, it’s a great time to be watching.
‘With Sienna, there’s something unexpected ahead – something I didn’t see coming – something coming that shouldn’t work but weirdly does – no-one will guess, but I can say it’s something nice for Sienna…’
Something nice!? For Sienna? Surely it can’t possibly last.
Right now on screen, she is enduring a crushing grieving process and Damon Kinsella is refusing to let her be a part of Brody’s funeral as he reckons that without Sienna, he would still be alive.
With Sienna originally known as a character we would loathe, Anna is glad to have the opportunity to again show her sensitive and vulnerable side and hopes that the fans do feel for her – although she also played devil’s advocate and admitted she sees Damon’s point of view too.
After all, Sienna didn’t exactly do completely right by Brody, despite the depth of her feelings.
Anna mused: ‘I did really feel very sorry for Sienna when reading it and I feel the audience will too but it’s complicated as Damon’s position is understandable too.
‘Obviously Sienna had a big hand to play with everything with Summer. She didn’t do the best by Brody but she really did love her and she deserves that time to grieve.
‘It’s a difficult situation all round as there is so much suffering for both Sienna and Damon and ideally they would unite and move through this together.’
