Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davis has been revelling in her new-found status amongst TV viewers.
The 21-year-old actress has been enjoying a surge in popularity as fans rally around her character Sinead Roscoe to put a halt to her brother Finn’s violent streak.
“Recently I feel so loved! For years, people would be like, ‘Oh, your character is so annoying!’ or ‘She’s such a b***h for bullying Esther!’ Now I go on Twitter and everybody is like, ‘Team Sinead!’,” she told Metro.
Sinead has become increasingly suspicious over Finn’s edgy behaviour, especially after discovering a video of Blessing Chambers (Modupe Adeyeye) after she was attacked by Finn.
“I think Sinead is going to be the one to take Finn down. She’s just messing up everyone’s lives, that’s what she’s doing,” Stephanie said.
Sinead is also set to make a move on her stepmother Diane’s partner Tony Hutchinson, to show Diane that he is cheating on her. This is part of her revenge mission, following the death of her baby daughter Katy.
“She thinks if she gets revenge on people then it will make everything better,” she said.
Stephanie teased that she sometimes can’t believe what the storyline holds for Sinead.
“It gets a bit heavy. I would read the scripts and go, ‘No, this is not happening! Yes, it is! Oh, god!’,” she added.
Hollyoaks continues on weeknights at 6:30pm on Channel 4.
