Due to his membership in a right-wing gang, Max Turner (Paddy Bever) is getting ready to return to Coronation Street shortly after doing time in an STC.
He was coerced into supporting the racist, prejudiced attitudes of the group via manipulation and grooming. When Alya (Sair Khan) was stabbed at Speed Daal, Max was relieved that he had apparently found a “family” he could fit into. However, he was unaware of how poisonous and deadly his new friends were until that horrifying event.
It is drastically different. As Paddy Bever said, Max who returns to the Street is actually hesitant to leave the STC at all.
Max doesn’t do well alone, and now that he’s established a pattern and a way of life in the Secure Training Centre, he’s afraid to leave since there isn’t anything predictable, safe, or secure about life outside of jail. There, he clearly states the time and date of his actions. This is also beneficial for him because he has ADHD and finds it frightening to be abruptly thrust back into the world, where anything might happen. Of course, he’s had a pretty hard time there; he’s been bullied, but regrettably, Max only knows that; he was bullied outdoors as well.
Additionally, Max is aware that he will need to accept full responsibility for his acts in the outside world.
He does feel like a criminal in jail since he is in an STC, but the other inmates have also broken the law. When he comes out, he knows he’ll be singled out, that he’ll be left on his own, and that he’ll be used as a scapegoat, Paddy speculated. Being someone that his family is embarrassed of is “beyond humiliating,” and it “devastates Max.”
Max will soon start to develop, according to Paddy, and he was excited to watch how it would all play out.
Since he was 15 years old, he had been stealing wallets and acting foolishly, and now, the man claimed, Max had made some serious errors and was in serious danger. But now that he’s developing, we’re beginning to see a side of Max that I’ve never noticed before. We’re beginning to watch him mature, and I believe that for most actors who play characters in other TV shows, they just portray a little portion of their lives. However, what’s remarkable about soap operas is the continual character growth.
People like Jack [P. Shepherd], who has portrayed David since he was a little child and seen his role grow into a dad, come to mind. That’s why this programme offers you such a special chance to grow your character, help them mature, and see them get older. I find that to be extremely fascinating and exciting.
Gav (Noah Olaoye), a coworker of Max’s at the STC, begs him to check on his girlfriend Bec after he leaves. Max swiftly fulfils his obligation to Gav and finds Bec.
He views this as his first chance to contribute to society and help his friend, who has been really nice to him and has taken him under his wing, Paddy informed us.
The best method for Max to demonstrate his change of heart and reciprocate the courtesy done to him is to give back to the person who helped him out so much. He then meets Bec, who believes that Max is flirting with him but, in reality, he is only advancing Gav’s plan and attempting to win Bec back over to Gav.
Could Max’s encounter with Bec be the beginning of a new relationship?
His former girlfriend, Lauren Bolton (Cait Fitton), shared membership in the right-wing group with her father, but the couple split up when she was made to move home with her mother in Cornwall. Since Lauren is rumoured to be making a comeback shortly, Max and Lauren could make an effort to patch things up.
Will Max eventually find love with Lauren, Bec, or someone else entirely? Paddy declined to be more precise, but he did say that he sincerely hopes Max finds true love at some point in the not too distant future.
The actor remarked, “I would like to see him find love with someone who has good intentions for him, with someone who is not going to put him in danger.” “I’d like to see him find love with someone who can weather the storms with him instead of bringing them on,” she said.
