Meet Roy Cropper’s Niece Nina

Life is about to get a whole lot more complicated for Roy Cropper when he discovers a family he never knew existed.

Next week viewers will find out that Roy has been doing some more digging into his mother’s secret life and has unearthed evidence of a son she had during her affair.

When he finally tracks down his brother Richard Lucas (Paul Bown) he is surprised to find he has a teenage daughter Nina, and she is less than impressed with Uncle Roy’s sudden appearance in their lives.

Roy’s subsequent discovery that Richard is seriously ill leads him to agree to take on responsibility for his niece's welfare, but will he regret taking in another troublesome teen?

David Neilson who plays Roy said: “The storyline is a great device to bring Roy’s niece Nina into his life, a new relationship with a younger character, a troubled young person in the same way as he took in Wayne, Fiz, Becky and even cared for Carla when she was struggling. It is an interesting dynamic.

“Roy works well when he has something to focus on, a problem to solve or someone to look out for, particularly someone who others may see as a bit different.
Roy can identify with that as he has been an outsider himself. It is interesting and it puts him on his mettle.
They are different generations and worlds apart but there is a connection between them.”
