Hi Lysette, what did you think when you heard Marnie was going to have a tag?

I didn't initially give it a huge amount of thought, other than thinking it was a great script idea. However, the amount of excitement it has generated has really shocked me [laughs]. The dialogue is so brilliant and it was the best version of Marnie to play - it was a dream. At one point I shouted so loudly, that James Bradshaw (DS Thorpe) must have leapt 10ft in the air!

How do you think Marnie would cope if she had to go to jail?

She wouldn't cope very well at all. The police would probably just tell her to go home and forget it, no matter what she'd done!

Marnie must really like Buster to break her curfew to go out with him…

She was genuinely aware of the time, but she's like a moth to the flame with Buster. I am loving this new relationship, it's an interesting mix and Marnie's having fun!

What is it about Buster that attracts Marnie to him?

She likes the fact that he's really kind to her and clearly adores her. She's not had a lot of kind men in her life, so he's a breath of fresh air. One of my favourite scenes was where Marnie just jumped on Buster! When we filmed it, it was only Nathan's 2nd or 3rd day, but he's such a good sport and I know how frightening it can be starting here.

Do you think Marnie is ready for a new man in her life?

She thinks she is, but I guess we will have to see…

Is Marnie looking for something serious or just some fun?

This is serious fun at the moment, but if we were to look into Myra's crystal ball… I have a feeling it could end quite badly!
