Hollyoaks: Moya Brady says killer Breda is ‘adorable’

Moya Brady says ‘Hollyoaks’ serial killer Breda McQueen is "adorable" and "unique".
The soap star – who joined the cast of the Channel 4 show last year – has continue the programme’s history of captivating killers, and she suggested her alter ego manages to stand out from the rest and something truly different.
She said: "Well, there’s no one like Breda is there? She’s a completely unique character… An elderly woman of advancing years who’s on a moral crusade, and she’s adorable!"
In scenes set to air next week, Mac Nightingale (David Easter) convinces Breda to kill his son James (Gregory Finnegan), in exchange for him keeping quiet about her murderous ways.
She sneaks a dose of poison into a coffee cup, and it appears James could become her sixth victim – but Mac’s blackmailing won’t be enough to put her on the straight and narrow.
Moya admitted: "No, but it’s a cautionary tale to keep sharp… But no, it won’t."
Moya also opened up on her character’s motivations and goals of taking out the "bad dads" in the village, and it appears she certainly isn’t done yet.
She added: "The village is full of them! Even the good dads can be bad dads in Hollyoaks!"
And Gregory revealed that if James does get killed off, he’ll be sad to be away from his alter ego’s on-screen family.
Asked what he’d miss the most, he said: "My much depleted Nightingale family. We’ve had such a lot of fun over the past few years, and I miss working with Richard, Sophie, Jen Amrit and Jared, who have all long since left the village."
