"When I finish a scene with PJ, I feel exactly the same - completely happy with it.I've managed to watch some of the scenes back that haven't been on screen yet, and I think the chemistry is just as good as what Ste and Brendan have got - if not better because you can see a love story blossoming.Now we have these new 'Stug' fans too, so I'm just happy that my name's in both of them!"It's good that people are interested, and I think any reaction is a good reaction.One of the reasons that we do this job is to get people talking, especially when it comes to quite sensitive issues.
But I just wanted to prepare people that Ste's life doesn't revolve around Brendan.Hopefully that means the audience will believe in the stuff that we deliver."As the story has created so much discussion, what's your take on the fan reaction?"Obviously I know about the 'Stendan' fans and they message me every day on Twitter.So as the show addresses Doug's sexuality, it's going to be different from the story we saw with Ste."You've always had great on-screen chemistry with Emmett.Has it been easy to strike up something similar with PJ?
Will Ste be quite understanding and patient with him?
