Viewers will watch tonight as Nina and boyfriend Seb Franklin are brutally assaulted by Corey Brent’s gang of thugs.

But it is the state of Nina’s injuries that affected Mollie – even before she filmed the scenes.

Speaking to The Sun and other media, Mollie said: “I remember the first time I had the make-up done, I hadn’t filmed any scenes yet and I’d just been rehearsing it in my mirror at home by myself. 

“As soon as the makeup was done, I just wanted to cry.

“I remember looking at my reflection and thinking, ‘wow’. I already knew it was awful but when you’re actually in it, I thought I could cry. 

“It was a really strange feeling. I kept thinking about all the scenes and what was coming up. 

“It did help in a way as I was able to hold that feeling when we filmed the scenes. 

“It was a massive help.”

Mollie also told how filming the beginning of the attack scenes when Kelly Neelan slaps Nina, left her feeling the panic as if it was a real-life attack.


She said: “I remember filming it and you can feel the panic. 

“When we were filming it, there was something about the day which did feel a bit intimidating. 

“I think because it was just me and Harry against a big group of people.”
