Emmerdale star Mark Charnock has said he thinks his character Marlon will stay with Laurel.
The actor thinks the couple have a "quirky" rapport and are well suited to each other.
He told Inside Soap: "I think they're really well matched.
"They're both quirky, romantic in an off-kilter way. They're both quite funny. I just think it's a meeting of minds really.
"They both really get each other and are people who a lot of the other villagers don't get."
Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy) recently left her husband Ashley after it was revealed that he had been abusing his elderly father Sandy.
Meanwhile, Mark revealed that Marlon begins to regret his decision to stay in the village with Laurel rather than join his son in New Zealand.
Charnock added: "Marlon decides to stay with Laurel and says, 'I'll just make it work', which is a lie.
"His son's everything to him and there's inevitably going to be a moment when he says, 'Actually, why am I being made to choose?'."
