Where ’ there s a will
Chrissie’s gutted when a DNA test proves Lawrence is Rebecca’s father
ebecca White is fast becoming the sister from hell. She’s had an affair with Chrissie’s ex-husband Robert and takes delight in rubbing her sibling’s nose in it when she finds out that she’s Lawrence’s biological daughter.
Knowing that Chrissie won’t react well if she finds out about the affair, Rebecca urges nephew Lachlan to keep it a secret. Meanwhile, she probes Chrissie, hoping that she’ll confess that Lawrence isn’t her real dad.
‘Robert has told Rebecca this already,’ says Emily Head, who plays her. ‘But she’s hurt that Chrissie hasn’t revealed it herself.’
When Chrissie fails to tell Rebecca the truth, Rebecca tears up the birthday card Chrissie gave her. Lachlan finds it in pieces and, realising that Auntie Rebecca isn’t as genuine as she seems, tells his
Rmum about her fling with Robert. The sisters have an almighty catfight in The Woolpack and Rebecca spits that they aren’t really sisters, leaving Chrissie furious that her secret is out – and panicking about her future.
Rebecca has her eye on Lawrence’s will, too, and promptly arranges a DNA test. Lawrence intercepts the results, but his exlover Ronnie persuades him it’s time to be honest. Rebecca then opens the letter and declares that Lawrence is her real dad.
Adds Emily: ‘Rebecca is delighted and knows where she stands in the family.
‘She has a problem with the fact that the will was changed when Lawrence was injured, and wants to stake her claim.’
Chrissie, who’d long assumed he was her father, too, is consumed with jealousy and, to add insult to injury, Rebecca announces that she wants to work for the family business. Lawrence makes her comanager and, for Chrissie, it’s a declaration of war. Is Rebecca a match for her big sis?
