Fair City's Ama unleashes the fury
11 Feb 2016 09:09
Heather is set to feel the full force of Ama's fury in Fair City on RTÉ One on Wednesday night, with actress Úna Kavanagh telling TEN that fans will see "the complete unravelling of a human being" in the coming week.

Warning: spoiler alert!
-
Ama (played by Donna Anita Nikolaisen) confronts Heather about poisoning daughter Ellie and her affair with Ama's boyfriend Shane.
-
Kavanagh has described her character Heather's response as "incredibly vile": Heather tells Ama that Shane was laughing at her behind her back. Ama then sees red and smacks Heather across the face.

Kavanagh told TEN the scene was great fun to film and is a great moment for Ama.
-
"The whole way through this storyline she's constantly been in the dark - another person who's been damaged by Heather's behaviour," she said.
-
But if fans reckon there couldn't be any more drama with Heather they should think again.
-
"All of these behaviours that she's been acting out, all of these things that she's been doing - including the horrific, terribly sad and heinous poisoning of her child - the audience will see the effects on her of what she's done. The whole family is pulled apart by it." said Kavanagh.
-
"What happens to the family after is really interesting," she teased. "The decisions that are made are great, and you see why they make them."
-
When asked if Heather's current storyline had changed her feelings towards the character, Kavanagh replied: "For all of her flaws - this incredibly multi-sided kaleidoscope of a woman who is complex and fearless and also really, really disturbed - I love her. That's my job."
-
Fair City continues on RTÉ One on Wednesday at 8:00pm.
