National TV Award winner Julie Hesmondhalgh says Hayley’s heartbreaking death was filmed on one take with co-star David Neilson (Roy).
The scene, part of Monday’s climactic right-to-die storyline, watched by 10.6 million, featured Hayley drinking a lethal cocktail, beside her desperate husband.
Julie told What’s on TV on the NTAs red carpet: “We only did one take so me and David have been saying tonight we don’t really remember filming it. It was so emotional and we only did it the once, so watching it was so emotional actually.”
