Hollyoaks' Sally resigns from her head teacher job in huge twist
Hollyoaks icon Sally St Claire (Annie Wallace) made a huge decision in the wake of her release from prison, as she decided to resign from her dream job.
A gasp-worthy moment, no doubt!
The head teacher of Hollyoaks High is struggling to reconcile her teaching position with the fact that she is responsible for the death of another human being.
Claiming that she cannot be a good influence for children in the wake of her actions, Sally decided that she would resign.
John Paul McQueen (James Sutton), Nancy Osborne (Jessica Fox) and Goldie (Chelsee Healey), naturally, were devastated.
Nancy in particular reiterated just how many childrens’ lives she has changed for the better over the years, hoping that a reminder of such a thing would make her want to stay.
But nonetheless, Sally was steadfast in her decision.
This is going to change who she is as a person,’ actress Annie Wallace told Metro.co.uk back in May.
‘Because how does someone who believes they are a good personal and a moral person – an educator, a protector of children – how does that kind of person come to terms with the fact that she’s taken another person’s life?
‘And how does that affect her psychologically going forwards? I don’t think this is something that can be just dismissed and brushed under the carpet, I think this is something that will have a repercussion in her life for quite a while! And that, to me, was even more interesting that being a part of this ‘whodunit’.
‘I think it’s inevitable that this is going to have an impact on her career. I think there will be some evaluation going on: is she still a fit person to have the job? Is she going to hide away in her office? Is she going to spend a lot of time on the sick?
‘If someone is put in that position, are they going to hide away from the world because they feel like they are a threat to people?
‘It’s all about protecting, and what better way to protect than taking someone who has killed another human being out of the equation? That’s quite possible, in terms of where this is going to go. She’s not going to be in a good place at all.’
Hollyoaks continues Monday July 12 at 7pm on E4.
