Robert turns to the dark side Cor­rie

Robert And Michelle ARE in yet More dan­ger And Ac­tor tris­tan gemmill hints that pro­tec­tive Robert will turn to the dark side to Re­solve the Mat­ter…

Soaplife - - News -

Robert Pre­ston is pay­ing for his dodgy past and, while it’s bad enough he be­lieves he’s be­ing tar­geted by lowlife drug dealer Rich, he can’t bear the fact that his girl­friend, Michelle Con­nor, is af­fected. ‘Robert feels to­tally re­spon­si­ble for the night­mare that’s un­fold­ing,’ ac­tor Tris­tan Gemmill tells Soaplife. ‘And be­ing the hands-on guy he is, Robert de­cides he has to fix it his way… and it sort of spi­rals out of con­trol be­cause of that.’ But is Rich re­ally be­hind the sab­o­tage and can Robert’s re­la­tion­ship with Michelle sur­vive?

Does Robert be­gin to sus­pect that it may not be Rich who’s re­spon­si­ble for the at­tacks on the Bistro?

Rich has a strong al­ibi, but Robert’s been blinded by the sever­ity of what’s hap­pened. He can’t think of any other ex­pla­na­tion. Robert’s con­vinced Rich is re­spon­si­ble and he can’t get this out of his head.

Why does he of­fer Ch­es­ney Brown £5k?

Robert no­tices Ch­es­ney jump when a plate smashes and he wor­ries he may have psy­cho­log­i­cal scars af­ter the Bistro at­tack. Adam Bar­low’s threat­en­ing le­gal ac­tion, but Robert of­fers Ch­es­ney a quick pay­off he can’t af­ford in­stead of get­ting into a pro­tracted hag­gle over it.

Michelle of­fers to bail Robert out… How does he feel about that?

He wants to sort out his own prob­lems and he doesn’t want money to get in the way of their re­la­tion­ship. Robert goes to the casino. He thinks it will help him un­wind, plus he could win some money.

Does it help him un­wind?

No. Michelle’s fu­ri­ous when she finds out and they have a big fall­ing out. Robert ar­gues he got them into this mess and he’ll get them out of it. Michelle points out this will count for noth­ing if the Bistro goes bank­rupt be­cause he loses more money. There are some icy mo­ments and Michelle in­sists that from now on they tell each other the truth about ev­ery­thing.

What is Robert’s re­ac­tion when Michelle’s car is van­dalised?

Michelle’s clearly doesn’t know about it, so Robert goes into pro­tec­tive mode and he gets it fixed with­out telling her. When she finds out, they fall out again. These at­tacks are start­ing to un­ravel Michelle and Robert’s re­la­tion­ship.

Michelle’s in real dan­ger… What will Robert do if any­thing hap­pens to her?

He’ll do any­thing to pro­tect her and we find out just how far he’s pre­pared to go.

How much are you en­joy­ing play­ing this side of Robert’s char­ac­ter?

It’s great to have a darker side to him, re­veal­ing his vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties and flaws. There’s also a hint he has an in­cli­na­tion to­wards vi­o­lence!
