Brooke Vincent thinks her 'Coronation Street' alter ego Sophie Webster is attracted to Amber Kalirai because she is ''a rebel''
Coronation Street's Sophie Webster falls for Amber Kalirai because she is a "rebel".
The troubled teen is set to cheat on long-term girlfriend Sian Powers (Sacha Parkinson) with her pal, and Brooke Vincent - who plays Sophie in the ITV1 soap - can understand why her alter ego's attentions shift to the student.
She said: "I think Sophie's falling for Amber. Sophie likes that Amber doesn't judge her for her beliefs, her Christianity and the fact she's a lesbian. In fact, she just lets Sophie get on with it and even cracks jokes, which Sophie really likes.
"Sophie loves the fact Amber is a bit of a rebel and wants to cause trouble. Amber's a really strong-willed character and always helping Sophie to see the funny side of things."
Sacha is set to depart the soap at the end of the year and while Brooke is happy for her friend, she is anxious about being on set without her.
She added to Inside Soap magazine: "I've so enjoyed working with Sacha and we've been on such a long journey.
"We do everything together, so for her not to be here and for her character to not be around is going to take a lot of getting used to. But it's her decision to leave and I'm happy for her."
