INTERVIEW: Carla's Conundrum

Alison King discusses the battle for the factory, life after Aidan and Carla's disastrous love life - especially where Peter's concerned...

How has Carla been feeling since Aidan’s death because she had kept it together for so long and been everyone’s rock?

She was trying to be strong but she needed to have that meltdown and fighting Alya for the factory was her denial and when it looked like she had lost it all, it was a release, everyone told her it wasn't her fault and she knows that but she still believed she had played a part in his death.

What was it that was making her feel guilty?

It was the fact that like all of them she couldn’t help and she didn’t know how he was feeling. She tries to help everybody and fix everybody and she feels has done so many things wrong, she was out of control and she couldn't do anything to fix it. She was able to grieve at the funeral and she was able to cry but she still felt as though she had played a part in it, coming back to Weatherfield, giving him the factory.
