Coronation Street actor Ian Puleston-Davis, who plays Owen Armstrong, gave a good radio interview to Uckfield FM this morning. He was in good form and clearly enjoyed the interview, taking questions from listeners and answering questions about what will happen between Anna and Owen.
He says that Anna and Owen's relationship is not going to be fine in the short time, but that there will be
a lot more fall-out between them, before it gets better.
Asked if he knows what the final outcome between Anna and Owen will be, he said: "We honestly don't know, we film about five weeks ahead of what the viewers see on screen. We have the scripts, we learn them, we film them but after that we're in the dark so we don't know the outcome between Anna and Owen. It's not looking good, there's a rocky journey ahead. But I have a strong inkling that they will stay together, Anna and Owen are a good match."
A viewer asked him how Owen reacts when Anna tells him what happened with Phelan. Ian says the scenes are written very well and although a bit of Owen's old temper comes out, this time around we see a different reaction from a different Owen which will help mend the path to repair things for the future.
On the subject of whether there might be any humour coming soon for the Windasses, he said that one of the things he and Mikey North (his best buddy on the cast) like about the Windass story is that it is very dark. They like the current doom and gloom for the Windasses because it seems to fit, for the moment.
And finally, on the new set, he says it's like "going to big school" and the cast are having fun discovering nooks and crannies on the bigger set with fantastic facilities.
