Louise Marwood reveals all to Soaplife

Soaplife: How has Chrissie been getting on with Lachlan?

Louise Marwood: “He continues to upset her with his behaviour, which is distressing for Chrissie. It’s been one thing after another with Lachlan for a long time.”

S: Does she worry about his state of mind?

LM: “She worries about him all the time. She worries he could self-harm or do something really stupid. It’s all constantly on her mind.”

S: What makes her think he’s killed himself?

LM: “He sends her a message saying he’s never coming back, then he goes missing. He’s never done anything like that before. What she doesn’t know is that he chillingly picks up a power drill after sending her the message…”

S: Why do you think he’s turned out like this?

LM: “She’s overprotected him and she’s never made him accountable for his behaviour. She always thought that she was doing the right thing, but she’s really paying the price for it all now.”

S: What can viewers expect from Chrissie as the tension mounts?

LM: “She can be very unpredictable. You’ll just have to keep watching to find out!”
