Video: Chris Harper on Nathan's comeuppance

Chris Harper, who plays evil Nathan Curtis in Coronation Street, was interviewed on ITV's Loose Women this week.

Chris spoke about dealing with his character Nathan grooming Bethany Platt in one of the most controversial storylines in the history of the soap.

'He’s going to get his comeuppance," Chris said. "Bethany’s going to go on a very brave journey and we’ll all witness that,' Chris revealed.

And he explained why he took the role and wanted to do the storyline justice.

'The bravery of people who come forward and tell the law cannot be underestimated,' Chris said. 'It’s a real privilege to be part of the storyline. They have really cared about Bethany and about where her journey is going, and also about survivors and victims themselves and really wanting to get this story right for them.'

I'm glad this storyline is reaching the right audience. Of course, you can't quantify who *doesn't* contact the police because they're worried they might meet another Neil. His presence adds elements of a psychological thriller but it belongs in some other tv drama, not a soap which is trying to deliver a positive message. It's also interesting that Kate Oates and Ben Cartwright (Neil) haven't done an interview about his promised come-uppance.

Here's to hoping Neil gets his come-uppance in the end also, since he's a bit part of this story also.

I'm not good with links and techy stuff sorry, but this is a headline from the Bolton news on line today. Check it out. So it indeed does go on. But luckily this guy has been caught and jailed, so hopefully this will happen to Neil in due course
