Hannah Spearritt thinks her relationship with 'Primeval' co-star Andrew Lee-Potts helps with the couple's on-screen chemistry, but admits filming the series wasn't a romantic experience
Hannah Spearritt thinks her relationship with 'Primeval' co-star Andrew Lee-Potts helps with their on-screen chemistry.
The 30-year-old actress - who plays Abby Maitland in the ITV1 drama - explained while being engaged to Andrew, who portrays Connor Temple, in real life makes their screen love life more believable, being on location wasn't a romantic experience.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I think our relationship does help. It is important if you're working with somebody you like, then it makes it much easier to emulate that chemistry. If you're not so keen on someone, and you have to pretend to like them, it makes it a much harder job.
"We really enjoyed going on location in Dublin, but at 6am in the morning, it's not very romantic. It's hard to be romantic anywhere at 6 in the morning, however scenic the location may be."
However, she may wish to make the most of working alongside her fiancé, as Hannah - a former member of pop group S Club 7 - hinted the "explosive" fifth series of the sci-fi show could be its last.
She explained: "It's hard to say what will happen after this. We have lived and loved doing the show, and the last episode of this series is very explosive. So I'm not sure really.
"That's the thing with 'Primeval', it can always go somewhere. But I don't think the audience will be left unsatisfied if the show ended."
'Primeval V' will be premiering on Watch on May 24 at 8pm.
