Jorgie Porter has admitted filming harrowing 'Hollyoaks' scenes often leaves her in tears at the end of her working day
Jorgie Porter goes home and cries after filming 'Hollyoaks'.
The 23-year-old actress - who plays wild child Theresa McQueen in the Channel 4 soap - admitted filming challenging scenes, which saw her character fall pregnant by her cousin's husband Calvin Valentine (Ricky Whittle, have taken their toll on her emotions.
She explained: "It's been a very eventful few months. Theresa got pregnant by Calvin, killed him and then blamed it on another guy that went to prison. There have been some great storylines that have been amazing for me to play.
"It can be incredibly draining though. I go home sometimes and just cry. I bawl for no reason and then I realise it's because I've been crying non-stop on set for four months so that's probably got something to do with it."
However, despite the tears, Jorgie loves being part of the dysfunctional McQueen family and says she and the other girls love embarrassing crew members with their racy chats.
She added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I love the other McQueen girls. When I first got there, I thought they would be so bitchy and cliquey but they are like my sisters in real life.
"We have the most in-depth conversations ever. We talk about sex and everything you could imagine and the crew never know where to look."
