Olivia Colman Says Broadchurch Romance With David Tennant Is A No Go
Broadchurch actress Olivia Colman has ruled out a romance between her character of Ellie Miller and David Tennant's character Alec Hardy in the ITV Drama because she and David would "giggle too much".
Some of the show's fans have been rooting for romance to develop between the pair, but talking to the press on the red carpet of the Moet British Independent Film Awards Olivia said that she doubts anything other than friendship would ever blossom between them; "I don't think we could do it anyway. I think we'd giggle too much."
Though she did admit that a happy ending for kind hearted Ellie and grumpy Alec would be nice stating,"It would be very sweet,"
The third series of Broadchurch goes in to production in the summer of 2016 and will air on ITV in the early part of 2017.
