What has Lawrence Robb said about Mackenzie’s motives in Emmerdale?
Speaking to Metro.co.uk about Mackenzie’s reasons for coming to the village, actor Lawrence Robb revealed his character will grow hellbent on wrecking Moira’s life.
Lawrence teased: "He comes in with a bit of a chip in his shoulder. He’s got a big story about Moira’s past. He’s angry with Moira. He’s decided that he wants to come in and cause a wee bit of havoc for her!
"He wants to make life a little bit more difficult because in his eyes she’s been living the high life: Easy. 4×4. A nice big farm.
"He comes in and goes: 'No, actually, you’ve got family and you’ve got some issues which you need to deal with. Deal with me first.' That’s the crux of it.
"He really doesn’t like her. He’s got something to tell Moira. He’s come with a message, and throughout the course of the show, he will inevitably tell her.
"He wants to make life as difficult as possible, as he’s got a lot of resentment towards her."
