The Line of Duty star continued:"What I really hope is some people will relate to her, and find something within her and her reaction to her grief that they can relate to, and that may help. It's unique to all of us the way that we all experience grief whether it's a parent, a child or pet. So I can't be responsible for that, but I hope people relate."

It was important to weave that in, it's very natural and very organic and comes out of those situations."

Keeley's co-star Joanna Lumley also opened up about her role of playing Sarah, Alice's mother, during the same event."I think if you look at Alice's parents, you can see that Roger is much more connected to his daughter. Sarah seems hard-hearted because she is hard-hearted and she's tactless.

"She's not a cruel person and she's not a bad person, but she just hasn't got any, or can't see any reasons to have any special graces. So she's kind but fairly dismissive of Harry's parents. She's perpetually irritated by Alice who's made, she thinks, the wrong choice in man."

Finding Alice starts Sunday 17 January, 9pm on ITV. Read more: HELLO! »
