Coronation Street: Andrew Lancel says it’s “interesting” to see Frank Foster with his mum
Corrie star Andrew Lancel has revealed that he finds it “interesting” to see how the dynamic between his character Frank Foster and his mum Anne – who’s played by Gwen Taylor – plays out.
Speaking to Hot TV, Andrew said, “Frank has told Anne that he didn’t [rape Carla] and she believes him. She has to – she is his mother.
“It will be interesting to watch his relationship with his mother to see if it gives any clues as to what has made him the man he is today.”
As viewers saw in last night’s episode, Anne told Carla (Alison King) that she intends to be at the factory – acting on Frank’s behalf – every day, and that she’s going to watch Carla’s “every move.”
While commenting on why Frank sent his mother into the factory on his behalf, Andrew said, “It isn’t so much revenge as clearing his name…
“He knows that if he sticks to his story about being framed by Carla, it is going to look more feasible if he keeps his business interests going, and has his mum around keeping an eye on things and being seen to support him.
“He does still love Carla but it is a weird kind of love. He is very controlling and is in total denial about what he has done.
“He even thinks she made him do it and if she dropped the charges he would think he was forgiving her if he had her back.”
