Here is a very interesting interview with Stephanie from the Liverpool Echo website, which focuses on Stephanie's career in Hollyoaks. It has always been evident that Stephanie has loved working on the soap but this interview gives quite a big insight into her thoughts about the show before she joined, and the extent of her friendship with co-star Jonny. She also reveals a bit more about Sinead and Bart's relationship storyline which has been described as Romeo and Juliet - esque.
Stephanie really has made quite an impact since being on Hollyoaks and let's hope that she continues to have a fantastic time working on the soap and making her way in a tremendous career.
So here is the article from the Liverpool Echo:
STEPHANIE Davis couldn’t help but smile when she tuned in to watch the final of Over The Rainbow, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s search for a Dorothy in his new production of The Wizard of Oz.
Although the Prescot teenager’s dreams of performing in the West End had ended when she lost out in a sing-off in the fifth week of the BBC1 show, her hopes of becoming an actress were very much alive.
Just days after she bowed out with a rendition of Mr Bojangles, her agent called to say that Hollyoaks bosses wanted her to audition for a part in the Channel 4 soap.
Now 18, she has been on the show for just over a year and has no regrets about taking the part of Sinead O’Connor (named after the singer) rather than pursuing her stage dream.
“I definitely, 100% made the right decision, it’s Hollyoaks all the way,” she says.
In fact, it’s pretty much Hollyoaks 24/7 at the moment, as she’s filming her biggest storyline to date.
Sinead’s about to run away from home to be with boyfriend Bart McQueen (Jonny Clarke) after her stepmum Diane (Alex Fletcher) tells her to stop seeing him.
“Diane doesn’t want us to be together, so we run away to Wales. At first it’s all exciting, we go to a B&B and then obviously as time goes on it gets a lot harder.
“We eventually run out of money, have to leave the B&B and it becomes a struggle. But the only good thing is that we've got each other, like Romeo and Juliet,” she says.
“They do get a job on the fair and try and make the best of what they've got.
“It’s hard and they bicker, but they love each other and they make it up no matter what.”
