Matilda Gray’s ar­rival in Pen­l­lynith has pro­voked up­set in spooky thriller Re­quiem, par­tic­u­larly for Rose Mor­gan, the mother of Carys How­ell, who dis­ap­peared from the Welsh town in 1994.

Rose is stunned by Matilda’s the­ory that she is Carys, and this week, des­per­ate to be be­lieved, Matilda (Ly­dia Wil­son) has another emo­tional meet­ing with Rose and in­sists that she is her child, but the tor­tured mother begs Matilda to leave her alone.

Shat­tered

‘Rose’s world is turned up­side down when Matilda claims to be Carys.

She can’t dare to be­lieve that this is the girl she loved so much,’ says Claire Rush­brook, who plays Rose. ‘Her story is pain­ful be­cause she has been de­fined by the catas­tro­phe of her lit­tle daugh­ter be­ing taken.’

As Matilda con­tin­ues to in­ves­ti­gate, Rose’s be­hav­iour be­comes in­creas­ingly er­ratic and the cracks in her re­la­tion­ship with her hus­band Aron (Richard Harrington) grow wider, lead­ing him to take ac­tion for the sake of their son, Davey (Brochan Evans), who’s suf­fer­ing from night­mares. But how will Rose re­act?

‘Rose has seemed to be hap­pily mar­ried and has been pre­sent­ing her­self as do­ing well, con­sid­er­ing the aw­ful things that have hap­pened, but she’s churned up in­side,’ says

Claire. ‘Now she feels trapped and is pushed to the limit…’

Trou­bled... Rose and her son are in tur­moil over Matilda’s ar­rival
