Where is The Serpent's Nadine now?

Today, it's reported that Nadine lives on a beach resort in Thailand where she runs as a business. Her ex-husband, meanwhile, works further north of the country where he grows tropical fruit to sell at local markets.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Nadine spoke to the publication about what happened, saying: "Charles is a monster and I am terrified of him – I used to sleep with a baseball bat under my bed."

She added: "When Charles was arrested I celebrated with a bottle of champagne. I don't feel guilty because I know I did everything I could to put a stop to the murders. And I can tell you it was a good lesson. Now I am very careful with the people I meet."

What has Mathilde Warnier said about The Serpent's Nadine?

Nadine even spent some time with the actress who plays her for the drama. Mathilde Warnier, who also works as columnist and model in France, said: "I talked to her over the phone before shooting and later had the chance to meet her on set. She is even more incredible in real life! I was intimidated by meeting her, she’s been so strong and The Serpent is the story of her life.

"I remember having my wig and Scooby-Doo style costume on, whilst she was on set and I was terribly worried about what she might think of my portrayal. I have a huge admiration for her."
