Kerry, thanks for agreeing to answer questions posed by CHERUB forum members. I’ll start at the beginning with your life before CHERUB. Your parents were tragically killed in a Hong Kong apartment fire, is that something you think about often?
I think about it sometimes. But unlike many CHERUB agents I was too young to remember much about them. I have a few early memories of toys and a blurry image of my mother’s face but I don’t have the kind of deeper emotional connection that someone like Gabrielle feels for parents who she can remember clearly.
CN: So your first proper memories are of life on campus?
KC: I spent three years living in foster homes, then I got taken to CHERUB just after I turned six. I don’t think it even registered that you were supposed to have one set of parents. I just thought being shoved from place to place was normal.
CN: So what’s been your worst moment at CHERUB?
KC: Failing basic training, and the whole thing with my knee. It was a very serious injury and for a while it was touch and go as to whether I’d ever be able to run again, let alone complete basic training.
CN: And how is the knee nowadays?
KC: Not too bad, but I still get the odd twinge. I have it examined by a specialist every year and they might have to do a minor operation when I’ve finished growing.
CN: Moving on to the subject that raised more questions than anything else. One fan asks: James is a vain, cocky, chauvinistic, randy pig who has cheated on you numerous times. What is it you see in him?
KC: (Laughs) I think anyone who expects to meet Mr Perfect is in for a nasty shock! James does stupid stuff and I was badly hurt when he went off with Dana, but James' flaws are out there for everyone to see and he’s usually decent enough to admit when he’s done something stupid. I’d rather have someone like James who is flawed but basically a good guy, than some creep who pretends to be something he isn’t.
CN: So you can see yourself getting back with James some day?
KC: I don’t know, life is so complicated with missions and stuff and we’re both nearing the end of our CHERUB careers now. Who knows where we’ll end up?
CN: Have you made plans for your future?
KC: Not yet, it’s something I really need to get my head around. I feel like I’m too young to box myself in, but I’ll soon have to start making decisions about what I want to do with my life.
CN: Could you ever imagine living with James after you’ve both left CHERUB?
KC: I could definitely imagine it and maybe it wouldn't be all that bad. But I can’t think of anyone who ended up marrying the person who was their boyfriend when they were 12 or 13. So many things are going to happen in our lives. We could end up living in different countries. I may even luck out and meet Mr Perfect!
CN: Kerry, thanks for taking the time to talk to CHERUB News, and good luck with your future, wherever it takes you!
KC: No problem, it's been a pleasure!
