Samia Ghadie gets "frustrated" playing Maria Connor in 'Coronation Street'.
The 34-year-old actress has been portraying the kind-hearted hairdresser for 16 years but she has admitted, although she enjoys acting out the gripping storylines, she gets sick of her alter ego keep making bad decision and landing herself in hot water.
She explained: "Maria isn't completely faultless and she frustrates me like you won't believe. I like her, I love her but I don't always like her. Some of the storylines I read and I'm frustrated and I'm like, 'Why are you making another bad decision after another all the time?' But I guess that's what makes her fun for me to play."
Maria has just been cleared of murder after it emerged Caz Hammond (Rhea Bailey) had framed the blonde beauty for the crime by faking her own death, but it seems her life is about to spiral out of control again after the police come down on her for marrying Pablo Duarte (Shai Matheson) so he can stay in the country with his boyfriend.
She said: "It's a big one because we don't know if she's going to get sent down and I think the maximum is 12 months so she could be looking at a year behind bars for it, which is a massively stupidly decision she made to marry Pablo - the Argentinian guy - in her head she was doing the right thing and she was just helping out a mate but obviously you get a prison sentence if you get caught, so it's not the best decision."
Samia took some time away from the soap last year so she could give birth to her now-15-month-old son Yves, whom she has with her husband Sylvain Longchambon, and can't believe how much the little one has grown up over the past few months.
Speaking on 'This Morning' on Friday (16.12.16), she said of the youngster: "He loves music. He's obsessed with our portable speaker. At the weekend, we went away for a few days and in the airport he was putting on a show for everyone."
Samia also has seven-year-old daughter Freya with her ex-husband Matt Smith.
