I’M PROUD OF...THE bul­ly­ing sto­ry­line por­trayed by my char­ac­ter, Es­ther, in Hollyoaks. It got view­ers talk­ing and, four years on, peo­ple still tell me it helped them. It’s great to know it made a dif­fer­ence. I’VE LEARNED... To treat every­one equally. Home­less­ness is so preva­lent in Manch­ester, so I reg­u­larly head into town or visit a home­less cen­tre to try to get to know the peo­ple who live on the streets. I RE­GRET... Not learn­ing to play an in­stru­ment. I started to play the vi­olin when I was younger, but peo­ple around me la­belled it as “un­cool”, so I quit. That’s taught me not to be in­flu­enced by oth­ers. THE BEST PIECE OF AD­VICE I’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN... Was from So­phie Austen, my for­mer col­league on Hollyoaks. She told me to “Feel the fear and do it any­way.”
