'Coronation Street' actress Alison King thinks her alter-ego Carla Connor is too old to have another affair, despite the brunette bombshell being head over heels in love with Peter Barlow
Alison King thinks her 'Coronation Street' alter-ego is too old to have another affair.
The actress - who plays brunette bombshell Carla Connor in the ITV1 soap - explained while her character has fallen for Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne), she isn't prepared to be the 'other woman' in their relationship after the boozing bookie chose cheating wife Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) over her.
She said: "Carla is getting a bit too long in the tooth for affairs. Despite what people may think, it's not what she wants.
"It didn't make her feel good when it was her and Liam Connor. With Peter, she'd want a relationship - it'd be all or nothing."
However, even though the bolshie businesswoman will finally face up to the fact that she and Peter aren't going to be a couple, she will "always hold a torch" for him.
Alison added to Inside Soap magazine: "Carla's finally facing up to the fact that it's not going to happen for her and Peter. He's chosen Leanne - but Carla is always going to hold a torch for Peter."
