Romance for Amy & Toadie? Neighbours
All… friend Toadie? Zoe Cramond reveals Amy developing feelings for old is
Amy Williams and Toadie Rebecchi? On paper, they’re far from being the perfect match. But, as circumstances throw them together, Amy starts having certain feelings. ‘Amy develops a deeper connection with Toadie,’ actress Zoe Cramond tells Soaplife. ‘She sees just what a great guy he actually is and how he represents what Amy’s never had. She wants that kind of man in her life. And she wants him in son Jimmy’s life, too!’ But what about Toadie’s wife, Sonya?
Toadie’s marriage to Sonya is in big trouble and Willow Somers is back in town… Is Toadie’s vulnerability a factor in Amy’s feelings?
Yes. Toadie really leans on Amy as a friend and, as Amy had to find her father, Paul Robinson, Amy also has empathy for Willow’s situation, which helps him to understand things better. Willow and Amy bond, and Toadie goes to Amy for advice. They become very close.
Does Amy no longer see Toadie as just a good friend?
The friendship is definitely still there, but I guess Amy’s had a glimpse now of what it would be like to have someone like Toadie as a partner.
What are her feelings when Toadie kisses her on the cheek?
Amy reads what she thinks are signals that Toadie could be interested in her as more than just a friend, so she seeks some ‘guy advice’ from Tyler Brennan and everyone is affirming what she suspects – that Toadie is, in fact, into her. So she starts believing it.
Does she say anything to him?
Amy brings it up loosely once, but she doesn’t ask him directly about it.
Does she think he suspects she’s started to have feelings for him?
Yes, because he gives her certain signals, which is why she seeks advice from others.
So what about Sonya in all of this?
Sonya actually discusses the situation with Amy, but it never really gets resolved. Amy knows deep down that she and Toadie could only ever be friends because she could never betray Sonya like that.
Do you think Toadie and Amy could make a go of it or is it just a bit of a crush on Amy’s behalf?
Anything’s possible in Neighbours! At the end of the day, it comes from Amy wanting a good man in her life – then Toadie shows up! It’s definitely more the idea of Toadie than the reality, though. It would never sit right if Amy broke up a couple. She has too much of a moral compass for that.
