Hollyoaks fans may be surprised to learn that one of the soap’s stars actually appeared alongside John Travolta in a classic film.
Lysette Anthony, who plays Marnie Nightingale on the soap, starred in the hit ’90s film Look Who’s Talking Now as a character named Samantha, a lonely business woman who attempts to seduce James (Travolta).
The third instalment in the series, Look Who’s Talking Now saw James and Mollie (Kirstie Allie) expand their family again, this time adding dogs Rocks the mutt (Danny DeVito) and Daphne the poodle who, of course, say things the humans can’t hear.
James lands a job working as a private pilot to Samantha, who is determined to lure him away from his wife and family.
Recently on Hollyoaks, fans have seen Anthony’s Marnie go through trying times after covering up her daughter’s attack on Mac. She now faces being targeted by her husband.
In November, the actress told The Sun that the influx of emotional scenes have been like “free therapy” for her.
When asked if she ever found her dramatic storylines difficult, Lysette replied: “No, it’s really easy – who needs therapy? [It’s] f**king brilliant.”
Hollyoaks airs weekdays on Channel 4 and E4. Look Who’s Talking Now is available to watch on NOW TV.
