There have been several baddies in Cwmderi over the years causing trouble and making life difficult for the residents of the Cwm – and one of the scariest of them all is Gwyneth Jones. Gwyneth, who is played by the actor Llinor ap Gwynedd in Pobol y Cwm, has been away from Cwmderi for a spell in jail for dealing drugs – and she was framed for murder by the drugs gang led by Dylan Elis. Now Gwyneth is back and she’s angry – really angry – and someone is going to pay for what they did to her.
Llinor was excited for her return to the popular soap when talking about her comeback and said: “Gwyneth has come back to the village to take her revenge on Dylan because she knows that it was Dylan who framed her for this murder. Gwyneth has been rotting in jail for two years and she can’t think of anything apart from getting her revenge on Dylan. ‘It’s a case of ‘watch this space’ – things are going to get a lot worse. Dylan is still about the place and this is going to cause serious problems, I think.”
‘When she comes back and takes Jaclyn hostage. Jaclyn admits that she knew what Dylan had done and in that second, Gwyneth attacks Jaclyn.” “This wasn’t her intention but in that moment the ‘red mist’ descends’, teases Llinor.
“In my head, nobody is 100 per cent bad or 100 per cent good. Every individual has different dimensions. There’s a bit of bad in us all, I think. It’s just that Gwyneth goes to extremes.
Llinor has played the part of Gwyneth in Pobol y Cwm for 19 years and remembers her first scene being on location with Emyr Wyn, Gwyn Elfyn and Huw Ceredig. “As it turns out, I knew the three of them so it wasn’t as daunting as it sounds. And all three were really welcoming,” said Llinor.
