In shocking news, it was announced by Hollyoaks bosses that star Stephanie Davis has been cut from the show effective immediately and will not be returning to the soap to film any further scenes as her character Sinead O’Connor. Her agent advised that the reason why the Davis’ contract was terminated was due to “warnings for lateness, attendance and after a final incident in which she turned up to set unfit to work because of alcohol consumption“.
Sinead first burst on to the mean streets of Chester with her father Rob, stepmother Diane and younger brother Finn back in 2010; some of her major storylines included the death of her baby Katy and her involvement in the bullying of Esther Bloom. News like this makes me sad, because one, the girl is a really talented actor and has really grown in stature.
As a consumer of Hollyoaks, I enjoyed her character (I could have done without some of the wardrobe choices made for her, I mean seriously the heels they would put on her were ridiculous). I guess this is a lesson to all young actors out there looking to make it, that you need to take your job as an actor seriously, because at the end of the day, it is a job.
