Actually, the "Barlows" did a much better job of expressing emotion than "Deirdre" ever did in all her years on CS.

She gets well paid, indeed, considering her very limited acting ability, and getting worse over the years, she is grossly overpaid.

A joke character played by a joke actress.

Probably glad to take a break to get away from the awful amateurish pantomime posturing that Cotton/Sean seem to think passes for a half competent acting these days.
