Roisin Connor, Bad Girls
Roisin Connor (Siobhan McCarthy): On British prison drama Bad Girls, Roisin Connor was introduced in the fourth season when she was sentenced to four years in Larkhall Prison after covering up the embezzling crime of her financial firm boss and secret girlfriend, Cassie Tyler. Being locked away from her family, Roisin gained the freedom to be with Cassie, but being apart from her children was incredibly difficult, especially as her husband, Aidan, was convinced they could start a new life back in their home country of Ireland once her sentence was over.
As a result, Roisin became irritated by Cassie’s openness about her sexuality and easy-transition into the prison system, and it was not long until Roisin tried to cope with drugs, leading her into a mental breakdown. However, Roisin did manage to bring a maternal influence to the prison, looking after a great many of the vulnerable, younger inmates. Showing a reserve of strength and resilience, she saved the prison Governor, Neil, during a bombing at the prison.
Roisin eventually managed to accept her relationship with Cassie more openly, and when she left the show at the end of Season 4 it was implied that she was living on the outside with Cassie and her children, after they both received a free pardon for their heroic actions during the Larkhall bomb.
