Jessica Fox admits that her 'Hollyoaks' character Nancy Hayton will be "pushed to the edge" after finding out that her nephew has been involved in drug dealing
Jessica Fox admits that Nancy Hayton will be "pushed to the edge" after her discovering her nephew has been involved in drug dealing in 'Hollyoaks'.
The 37-year-old actress admits that Nancy is to be left in denial after finding out that Charlie Dean (Charlie Behan) is involved in a County Lines drug operation.
Jessica said: "Nancy has not had a very good year, to say the least. She has been a bit self-absorbed, and until this point, she thought that the drugs issue was only involving other people.
"As far as Nancy was concerned, it wasn't her family that could possibly be drug dealers, because those are 'other types of people'. She's quite snobbish in that sense and even when it was right there in her face, she was still trying to come up with excuses for Charlie.
"When it's all laid out bare and she can't deny it any more, it's just like the icing on the cake. It's the year that just wouldn't quit for Nancy. It's been one rubbish thing after another. It's going to push her over the edge of what she can really cope with."
Jessica revealed that Nancy will blame herself for Charlie slipping into a life of crime.
She told Digital Spy: "Any parent who found out their child had been groomed into dealing drugs would fear that it's their fault – unfairly in some cases.
"With Nancy, she will absolutely feel that way. She'll feel that she dropped the ball and her precious little Charlie Bear is a hardened criminal – and how the hell did that happen when she's still making him beans on toast? She's going to find that difficult to deal with."
