As documented by OK! Magazine, Samantha expressed her thoughts about her final scene, saying that killing their characters, “who are embedded within the fabric of that community,” takes away the chance of future producers. She also described the death scene as a “huge blow.”
The 49-year-old actress told Daily Star about the complications behind the scenes that irritated her. “Someone is always telling you what to do with your character and I just get really irritated. I end up arguing and then getting sacked,” Samantha said.
