the other woman
Samia Longchambon is mistress Maria
Up until Eva announces her pregnancy, does Maria think Aidan is going to dump Eva for her?
Yes! She’s a massive fool. When I read the scripts, it’s so frustrating because I’m like, ‘She should’ve learned by now’. She should’ve learned about 16 years ago when Tyrone cheated on her with Fiz.
What is it about him that she can’t stay away from? Liam was his cousin, so they obviously have that history. And for Maria, it is more than just lust. She loves him.
Eva has a big revenge plan for Aidan. What would you do to him?
I’d put prawns in the curtain rail and I’d cut one leg out of all his suits. I’d go bunny boiler on him. Which probably isn’t far from what Eva’s going to do!
If you could give Maria advice, what would it be?
I’d tell her she’s crazy and I’d give her a good shake as this is obviously not going to end well.
Do you wish she wasn’t such a gullible person?
Yeah, she frustrates me a lot. When I read the scripts, I’m like, ‘God, she’s so stupid!’ But you kind of will her to have a happy ending.
What’s the best thing about working with your co-stars? It’s easy as they’re dead chilled. I’ve known Shayne for a few years from Dancing on Ice and Cath is just hilarious!
