BBC One Drama The Secrets Q&A with Joanne Froggatt - “The Lie”

How does Lexie feel when she discovers Philip’s secret?

At first I think she’s confused. She knows he’s lied to her about something and the first inkling she gets is a phone call from the doctors mentioning his son, but you know that could just be a mistake. Then she follows him to work, when he is supposedly going away, and he doesn’t go where he says he’s going and he changes his car. So straight away there is something huge that he’s lying to her about, and that’s a horrible to thing to think that the person you’re married to could lie to you and what would be the reasons for that. When she realises what it is, it’s a wretch of emotions that one would expect in that situation.

What’s going through her mind when she goes to meet Zara undercover?

She wants to gather as much information as possible before she confronts Philip. She’s very angry and hurt, but before she can start to process those emotions she needs to know everything she possibly can. I think she’s trying to figure out why before she feels strong enough to confront him. That’s what makes her feel like she has some power in the situation – that she’s going to choose when to face the truth of this with him and confront him - and in the meantime she is desperate to understand the details. She can’t leave it alone. She has to know as much as possible, which I think is a very natural human reaction.
