" The actor said that "wasn’t sure how much life there was left in Charlie as he has done things that are so extreme", and that he hoped that he would go "before people can get sick of him." In 2005, actor Bill Ward claimed that people approached him regarding the abuse his character gave to Shelley Unwin (Sally Lindsay).
He said that "every now and then, after a couple of beers, somebody will come up and say 'She deserves it, doesn't she?
'", and that "they think Charlie is a hero and that it's all legitimate and acceptable behavior, which it isn't." He also revealed that he "had to be more wary" about where he went since his character started his "reign of terror", and that he’d had notes left on his car, which he found "worrying and unnerving".
Despite claiming some people condoned his behavior, he also said that some people told him to "be nicer to that Shelley".
