Faye Brookes would never get 'bored' of Coronation Street plot twists

Share article:

Faye Brookes doesn't see how anyone could get "bored" working on "Coronation Street" because there are so many plot twists and turns.

The 31-year-old actress" alter-ego Kate Connor was left devastated when her on-screen fiancée Rana Habeeb (Bhavna Limbachia) tragically died in the factory roof collapse, and she particularly loves portraying her character because "anything could happen".

She said: "It would be nice to see her happy, but I honestly don't believe she'll ever be the same again.

"She's on edge and I don't know where that could go. Anything could happen and I love that about my job - it keeps you on your toes.

"I don't know how anybody could get bored here at "Corrie". But I do hope she finds some sort of happiness."

Kate and Rana's growing romance led to the couple being dubbed "Kana" by soap super-fans, and Faye admits the social media reaction to the plot made the storyline "even more amazing".

Speaking to TV Life magazine, she added: "We didn't expect there to be a "Kana" fandom and I think that's what's made it even more amazing."

Faye recently admitted Rana's passing was the "hardest thing" she has ever filmed.

She said: "Rana's death was the hardest thing I've ever had to film and emotionally I ran myself into the ground with it."

Shortly before Rana's death was confirmed on-screen, Faye's real-life fiance Gareth Gates accidentally confirmed the news on Twitter - and the actress admits she "felt terrible".

He said: "It was a complete accident. We were out having some drinks when it aired and I lost track of time and thought it had already played out on screen. I felt terrible."
