Watch out Weatherfield! Coronation Street‘s Sophie Webster is tired of sexy big sister Rosie stealing the limelight and wants some attention, says the actress who plays her.
Brooke Vincent, who plays 14-year-old Sophie, said her character has recently been frustrated by all the attention Rosie gets – but that’s all set to change.
Brooke said: “Rosie and Sophie have always had that thing about attention between them. Rosie’s always getting the attention and Sophie’s always in the background.
“But in the next 12 months Sophie’s not going to stand for it any more. And there are going to be bombs going off!”
And although Brooke refused to reveal any specifics, it seems Sophie will not be going the same wild way as her sister.
The actress teased: “I think Sophie’s going to go another way – she’s going to the extreme max but in another direction.I don’t think she’s going to be like Rosie – I don’t think she could be like Rosie. She’s a very down-to-earth girl.”
But Brooke said her relationship with Helen Flanagan, who plays Rosie, is a lot better than that of the on-screen sisters.
She said: “Me and Helen, we are quite close. We’ve worked together now for five years so we are very close as sisters really,” she said.
She added: “She’s more glam and glitz than me though – she’s always immaculate. Her hair’s always perfect. But we have a laugh and we get on and it’s nice to be in that environment to work in.”
