Coronation Street actress Paula Lane is hoping Kylie and David Platt’s marriage will last the distance, despite their clashing views on children.
While David (played by Jack P Shepherd) is keen to have another child, Paula’s character Kylie wants to focus on her career and new job at the Bistro – and the actress is predicting drama ahead for the couple.
“The problem is that Kylie has always leant on David, but now she’s got a career of her own, that’s all changed. She’s more independent, so he probably feels like she doesn’t need him as much,” she told Inside Soap.
“I think they’re capable of getting through a lot. People are often against them and think their marriage won’t last. There’s been a lot of doubt about them as a couple but they’ve never doubted themselves.”
She added: “If David gave Kylie an ultimatum, she’d be inclined to choose her career over being a mum again – but only in the hope that he’d change his mind and agree to wait until she’s ready to have a baby.”
Paula – who is engaged to Tom Shaw – is rooting for Kylie to reach her career dreams and become a high-powered businesswoman.
“I’d love Kylie to make a huge success of the Bistro. She has all these quirky ideas that really shine through,” she said.
