Whats a good headline for online dating
Alison King has felt a real mixture of joy and pain playing unlucky-in-love character Carla Connor.
“Seriously, I’d wear flats, the high heels and cobbles have knackered my feet, I’d give the killer black heels a miss.
And I wouldn’t put on a gravely voice either, that’s been tough, it’s not my real voice.” “I’m shattered from filming so I hope it pleases everybody, I don’t think we could have put any more into it, it’s been emotionally draining.” Alison, who joined the soap in 2006, puts on her painful heels one final time so Carla can walk down the aisle for a third time next week when she weds Nick Tilsley, played by Ben Price.
She says: “It really hasn’t sunk in yet, it’s been ten years of my life so it’s a lot to take in.
“Carla’s wedding dress is uncomfortable too, it’s been squeezing me in.
It’s so tight there was lots of shallow breathing, weeks of shallow breathing, in fact.
“I actually filmed my last scene on my own, just Carla looking at her wedding dress, it was emotional.“I’m going to miss the people here, I’ve made a lot of great mates, but I’m tired.“I’m going to take a while off and then see what happens, I don’t know what I’m going to do next, something completely different to Carla, maybe a comedy.” Read more: Former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan turns heads during wedding shoot in Manchester Alison, 43, made her decision to leave the soap last year, but agreed to stay on for some months with fans finding out shortly if she will leave on good or bad terms.The door has been left open for her to come back in the future, but asked why she is leaving, Alison says she had to go for both her career and her six year-old daughter Daisy, who, she says, is the “main victim” of all her hard work on Corrie.Speaking to the Mirror, Alison says: “All Daisy has ever known is me getting out of the house at 7.30 in the morning and getting back when she’s in bed.I’ve probably only ever done about 20 pick-ups or drop-offs in all the time she’s been at school, which is quite sad.” Carla’s storylines on the Street have included the breakdown of two marriages, alcoholism, being raped and surviving minibus crashes and fires.
