Coronation Street star Samia Longchambon used ‘upsetting’ experiences with trolls as inspiration

OHMYGOSSIP — Samia Longchambon used her own experiences with vile trolls to inspire her upcoming ‘Coronation Street’ storyline.
The 39-year-old actress – who has played Maria Connor on the cobbles since 2000 – admitted she didn’t have to do much research into the plot, having suffered with online abuse over the years.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I’ve had trolls to the point it’s been really upsetting. It ends up affecting you mental health…
“Those people would never say that to your face. You’re such an easy target on social media.”
She noted how important it is for the ITV soap to deal with such serious issues, and insisted there will always be critics online.
She added: “If you dig hard enough you’ll always find someone who wants to tear you down.”
Some of the hate Samia had to deal with came when she started dating her now-husband Sylvain Longchambon, who she was partnered with on ‘Dancing On Ice’ back in 2013.
He split with ‘Hollyoaks’ star Jennifer Metcalfe – who was paired with him on the figure skating show two years earlier – while Samia broke up with her former ‘Corrie’ cast mate Will Thorp.
She later married Sylvain in 2016, a year after they welcomed their first child together.
She said: “People thought I stole her man. It absolutely wasn’t true.”
Meanwhile, Samia – who has 12-year-old daughter Freya and six-year-old son Yves with Sylvain – noted that trolling needs to be regulated to protect younger people online.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: “I look at my daughter, who’s 12, and I’m really nervous about her using it because you’re such an easy target on social media.
“I think it’s a huge issue at the moment with the rise in popularity of social media over the last few years. There’s a lot of negativity on social media and it can have a huge effect in your life.”
