Coronation Street actress Alexandra Mardell has teased that things may not end well for Emma Brooker, as her dark secret comes to light on the ITV drama
Coronation Street actress Emma Brooker, Alexandra Mardell, has teased how her character will leave the ITV series, as her dark secret comes to light.
With Corrie keeping her exit plot a secret, it’s been teased a shocking truth that could lead to Emma being sent to jail or even having to see her on the run – while the third twist could take her into the sunset with her new love Jon.
Alexandra has revealed all about a possible ‘happily ever after’ for Emma and Jon, that may soon be overshadowed when he finds out she was involved in the death of his grandfather Ted.
At the beginning of the year, Emma and Faye Windass were involved in a car accident, when they collided with an elderly man named Ted.
When Ted later died, with his cause of death believed to be related to a car incident, the girls kept it all a secret.
With the lie covered, Emma is shocked when Jon asks her to move to Australia with him.
Wanting to give it a chance, Emma was desperate for the idea – but not only did she leave her family behind, but her connection to Ted’s death was yet to be rumored.
So will her and Faye’s secret lead to her getting in big trouble when it’s revealed?
Alexandra reveals Emma didn’t initially believe Jon’s offer could work, and was instead a fantasy.
Speaking to The Mirror and other press, Alexandra said: “In her head it was just a dream and a whirlwind and she liked the idea of it, but in reality she knew she had this big secret and a family she just joined..
“It was just an idea and a hope, but in reality she thought no, this is not going to happen.”
She continued about what Emma’s life might have been like if she was sent to jail, about her crime secret: “It wouldn’t be good.
“I feel she will be targeted immediately. It will be interesting to see if she goes to prison and comes back in the future, how she will change, life in prison has changed. How is she.”
In a future return, Alexandra confessed that she’d love to see how the years away from Weatherfield might have changed her personality.
She explained: “It will be interesting to see how life experiences have changed her off-screen, I don’t know, it would have been nice to see a more serious side and a mature Emma. , but there must always be those silly things back.
“You can’t have Emma and you can’t have a silly bra, there’s always had to be an element of that.”
Alexandra doesn’t rule out a return in the future as she insists her character won’t be killed.
She told us: “I’m so happy, I’m really pleased. Even saying goodbye is hard enough but the small hope of one day, maybe that’s the possibility I have. I can come back, that keeps me going.”
“It’s not a goodbye forever, you never know but I’m really glad she wasn’t killed.
“I certainly didn’t draw a line under it. Like I said I could see how long people were there, I don’t know what the future holds but I’m glad Emma is alive and I hope she does. He’s still alive.”
The star also revealed that she was satisfied with her final scenes and exit plot, but added that she was “emotional” and “overwhelmed” on set by the end.
She revealed, “I’m so lucky and really pleased that the last scene is my last, especially since Covid is still lurking around and the schedule has changed.
“I’m so lucky that it happened to me, and I didn’t expect it to be so emotional. I know for sure I’ll be sad to say goodbye to everyone.
“As soon as AD said ‘it’s a wrap, it’s Alexandra’s last scene,’ I burst into tears uncontrollably. I couldn’t stop and I didn’t know what was wrong with me.
“I was so overwhelmed and I think that all of the support from the cast and crew, being there at that moment and also to say goodbye, it really overwhelmed me. I’m so sad and sad to say goodbye.”
