Hollyoaks star reveals Juliet and Peri future and it's hopeful
Many Hollyoaks fans have embraced the relationship between troubled Juliet Nightingale and Peri Lomax and Niamh Blackshaw has told Metro.co.uk that she sees a bright future for the couple.
They have certainly had some turbulent times and it’s fair to say that Juliet’s past experiences will cloud her feelings of trust and comfort.
But Juliet is prepared to put her heart on the line this time, proving how hopeful she is of a long term future with her other half.
Niamh told Metro.co.uk: ‘I am very proud of Juliet. She has been through so much, she is constantly let down and she does not trust easily.
‘This time, she doesn’t do what she does best and run away, they sit down and chat. And it’s a big step for Juliet; the fact that she is able to put her doubts aside for the sake of her relationship proves that Juliet and Peri could very much be long term.
‘The loyalty is there and Juliet is prepared to put her feelings on the line for Peri.’
And Niamh couldn’t be happier with the fan reactions to the couple, which came as a pleasant surprise to her.
She grinned: ‘The fans are so great! I love all the memes that they make, the comments they make and the accounts; they are so funny and clever.
‘Lots of them are desperate for them to be together but others see the relationship is toxic – I guess there is a little bit of childish toxicity in the relationship in the sense of maturity but most fans really are rooting for them.’
And now she is central to Peri’s stalking ordeal and Niamh is very vocal in the importance of Hollyoaks raising the topic of toxic masculinity and the discomfort of women when boundaries are crossed.
She sighed: ‘Timmy is quite extreme as he has camera in the bedrooms but in normal life it doesn’t have to be that extreme. It can just be the pressure or being coerced of doing something or being in a situation you aren’t comfortable with, such as sending pictures.
‘It all comes under the same umbrella by being made to feel uncomfortable by someone who oversteps the boundaries.’
