Brooke Vincent insists her 'Coronation Street' alter ego Sophie Webster is not just going through a ''phase'' of lesbianism with best friend Sian Powers
Brooke Vincent insists her 'Coronation Street' character is not going through "a phase".
The actress' on-screen alter ego Sophie Webster has found love with best friend Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson), but the 18-year-old star claims the troubled teenager is not just experimenting with her sexuality.
She said: "In the story conference, they wanted to point out that it wasn't a phase because it's not a phase to most people.
"We wanted to play it really real and just normal. You have a stereotype of what a lesbian is and it's not always like that."
Brooke also promised that the pair's romance will not run smoothly over the coming weeks.
Asked what the future holds for the couple, she said in an interview on 'This Morning': "You're just going to see the ups and downs of it all. Just stay tuned!"
Sophie and Sian have kept their relationship under wraps, but in last night's (19.07.10) episodes, Ryan Connor (Ben Thompson) discovered their secret.
It has recently been claimed that the young lovers will plan to run away to Australia in a bid to keep their romance hidden.
