Brooke Vincent acts 'for the first time'
Coronation Street's lesbian love triangle storyline is making Brooke Vincent act ''for the first time'', as she is finding the plot a challenging experience
Coronation Street's lesbian love triangle storyline is making Brooke Vincent act "for the first time".
The 19-year-old actress - who plays Sophie Webster in the ITV1 soap - admitted she is finding the plot, which sees her alter-ego cheat on her teen lover Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson) with Amber Kaliari (Nikki Patel), a challenging experience.
She told BANG Showbiz: "It's different to anything I've ever been used to and it's made me actually have to act for the first time.
"I think a lot of my own personality has come in to my character for the past eight years and now I'm actually having to really act differently. It's interesting though, and it keeps things fresh. "
The brunette beauty - who saw 'Coronation Street' pick up the Outstanding Achievement gong at last night's (26.09.11) Inside Soap Awards - explained she is also struggling with the prospect of seeing her "best friend" Sacha leave the show later this year.
Speaking at the ceremony - which was held at London's exclusive Gilgamesh venue - she added: "Sacha is my best friend and even thinking about her leaving makes me want to cry. She's more than just a co-star to me.
"It's crazy that we've spent so much time working together and all of a sudden she's going to be gone."
However, Brooke is coping fine with having to lock lips with her alter-ego's new love interest.
She explained: "Kissing a girl is like kissing a boy. You just close your eyes and hope for the best. It's somebody new that you have to get to know, it's exciting. Hopefully everything will be OK."
