Anna Passey wants Best Villain soap award
'Hollyoaks' actress Anna Passey is hopeful she might pick up her first ever prize at the British Soap Awards for her portrayal of scheming Sienna Blake
Anna Passey wants to be crowned Best Villain at the British Soap Awards.
The 'Hollyoaks' beauty, who plays scheming Sienna Blake on the Channel 4 soap, is desperate to win her first ever gong at the London awards ceremony later this month.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "I would absolutely love to win because I have never won an award. I was up for an NTA (National Television Awards), which was exciting but disappointing not to win.
"The fact I've got another go at it is great, especially in the villain category, because I absolutely love playing a villain."
The 28-year-old actress, who missed out on a Sexiest Female nomination, faces stiff competition from her own co-stars Greg Wood (Trevor Royle) and Jesse Birdsall (Fraser Black) in the Best Villain category and hopes Sienna' vulnerable side won't mean she isn't a top contender for the prize.
Anna - who joined the soap in 2012 - added: "I'm very excited. I was worried because Sienna's had her more vulnerable, softer side on screen.
"As she's such a complex character I wondered whether people would start to question whether she's actually a villain or not.
"I didn't expect to be shortlisted. But I'm not sure I have a chance against those two because they are mean men."
