One thing that you can’t escape once you are in a show like Coronation Street is the constant curiosity and discussion about you – from performance and personal life through to net worth and appearance.
And one thing that amuses Millie Gibson is fan criticism over her eyebrow, which fans believe she has deliberately styled so it looks like there is a gap.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, she smiled: ‘It is a scar! My dad gets annoyed with online comments like that! When I was 2 or 3, I have pictures looking like a thug.
‘I whacked my head off a corner on the bannister and my head just went massive. It never really healed, I kind of like it. It works with the character!’
And she admits that she gets a lot of attention from fans on social media due to Kelly’s actions, particularly since her involvement in the murder of Seb Franklin.
She mused: ‘It’s been half and half. Some people struggle to separate fiction and reality but many have been so kind – I hate your guts but you’re a great actress. It was expected so it’s been all right.
‘She is tricky to like anyway. Even Toyah is struggling to like her, you need good morals to stick with her. But as it pans out I hope people are more remorseful to her’
And she admits that can be a challenge to play – but Millie wouldn’t change her for the world.
She shared: ‘It’s so much more challenging in a good way to play a boisterous hard faced character. I am not as confident as Kelly – the way she speaks to people, it can be fun. She always gets in the wrong place at the wrong time.’
So would she stay in the cobbles, given the opportunity? Having only initially been offered four episode, Millie was not hesitant in her answer.
She enthused: I was thinking about this! I really don’t know. She will either turn her life around or just being a mouthy blonde of the cobbles. Part of me loves her despite what she gets involved in but I do see her sticking around.
‘I am so over the moon and grateful. I thought it was just a once in a blue moon experience but now I am part of this amazing family.
‘She has all of these underlying layers which are just amazing to explore.’
