As the actress discussed the role further, Panellist Nadia Sawalha asked the Corrie star, how she's able to switch off and disconnect from playing the role of Nina, as it such a harrowing storyline.
Mollie explained: "I mean it’s something that I do find quite hard.
"As an actor, I absolutely love playing these characters and I absolutely love playing Nina and I do get really attached to her.
"Because the storyline is so important and I am very passionate about it and I’ve put so much effort into it, hopefully that shows and stuff."
She admitted: "I do find it really hard to disconnect."
"You’re always thinking about it and how awful it is, you’re filming quite a lot you know, so you’re kind of always learning lines, you’re always rehearsing so yeah, it kind of never really leaves me."
Nadia responded: "I feel for you with that, you’ve got to look after yourself with that because obviously you’re such a good actress and an empath and you’re taking it all in.
"It’s good because you have a lot of older actors there that can give you advice, because you got to be able to switch off don’t you."
Mollie who plays Nina on the street was involved in a malicious attack, which led to the unexpected death of her boyfriend Seb Franklin.
