Corrie star Sally Dynevor on Sally Webster’s horror on learning the truth about Frank Foster

by Lynn Connolly

For months now, the nation has been screaming at the telly whenever Sally Webster takes evil Frank Foster’s side against Carla Connor, however, in forthcoming episodes, Sally’s about to find out the full extent of Frank’s lies…

And today, Digital Spy have an interview with Sally Dynevor, who of course plays Sally, in which she describes what goes through her character’s mind when she learns the full horrible truth about Frank (Andrew Lancel).

She began by saying “It’s all about to come crashing down. Frank is very clever, very charming and very manipulative…

“So he’s been able to tell Sally all the things that she wanted to hear. Frank needed Sally through the rape trial, but now that he’s been acquitted, he doesn’t really need her anymore.

“This week, things unravel and Sally discovers that Frank’s really not the man that she thought he was…

“She realises that she’s been really stupid to fall for everything – it’s another man that she’s fallen into evil ways for!”

And when asked, “How does Sally feel when Frank makes it clear that he did rape Carla?” Sally said, “Sally is devastated and she feels like a complete fool, because she’s backed him for so long – and that’s not something that she did lightly.

“She’s alienated everybody on Coronation Street to be with Frank, but then she finds out that he was lying all along.

“Sally tries to stand up to Frank and hold her own, but then some of his comments towards her get a little bit scary.

“Then she’s absolutely terrified of him, because she realises that he’s quite evil. It’s a complete shock to her.

”You’ll see lots of scenes coming up where Sally is telling Carla [Alison King] that she feels really bad, and she can’t believe that Carla is being so nice about it.

“Sally even tries to make amends by going into the factory buying cakes for everybody! She also has a little breakdown, because Fiz [Jennie McAlpine] comes round and says that she’s there for Sally if she needs somebody.

“Sally doesn’t think she deserves any kindness from anyone, and she can’t believe how nice everyone is being to her.”

But of course, someone on the Street is about to demonstrate their hatred of Frank by murdering him, and when asked if Sally could be a killer, the actress said, “I don’t think she’s capable of planning a murder, but I think she could be capable of losing control during an argument…

“And things could go wrong because of that. I could see Sally getting very angry with Frank, knowing what she knows now.

“That could mean that she is capable of killing him…”

However, Sally’s ex, Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) is also a suspect in the killing, of which Sally said, “He looks guilty because he’s been threatening to go and kill Frank.

“And of course, Kevin has lost so much in the last 12 months, that it might not be a surprise if he’s gone and done it.”

Who do you reckon will turn out to be the killer? I can’t really see either Sally or Kevin doing it, but Anne Foster (Gwen Taylor) well, she’s another kettle of fish, and maybe her son gets his evilness from her?
