Juliet was mostly raised by her brother Romeo Nightingale, due to their mother being a prostitute and they were physically and mentally neglected.
2018-2019: Arrival and Father reveal
Juliet first arrived in the village on 21st November 2018 with her mum. She is seen going into school and being picked on by the other children because her mum is acting up and flirting with the teachers in the playground and drinking a bottle of wine.
On Juliet’s 16th birthday, it is revealed that her father is Mac Nightingale. Juliet is upset about this because she grew up being told that her father was working away on ships and Romeo had been sending her fake birthday cards from her ‘father’ every year. She then storms off, upset, confiding in Darren Osborne.
2019-2021: Relationships and County Lines
Juliet meets a boy at school named Sid Sumner, who she instantly clicks with. They go on a few dates together and become a couple. During the time they are dating, Sid’s cousin Jordan Price grooms them into selling drugs for county lines. Juliet attempts to get out of this a couple of times but fails every time - with Jordan even going to the extent of attacking Romeo and she realises she is stuck in this. She begins to enjoy the money, power and status she is now receiving, especially after meeting Jordan’s boss Victor Brothers, who takes a liking to Juliet, seeing that she is different and more streetwise than his other working kids (this is due to her childhood watching her mother being an addict), and gives Juliet her own patch. She slowly becomes more a different person - she acts older and intimidating, and comes up with a new style with darker, straightened hair and makeup, rather than the usual blonde ponytail.
During the County Lines storyline, Juliet realises she is a lesbian when Sid is asking to have sex with her so they break up and she reveals her sexuality. She then develops feeling for Peri Lomax, Sid’s foster sister. They kiss at a party when they are drunk and Peri keeps rejecting her, telling her she sees her as a little sister but in December 2020, during the County Lines showdown, they make things official before Juliet hands herself into prison after Jordan’s death, which she is imprisoned for three months for.
2021: Life after County Lines and Mother's return
Juliet is released from prison in March 2021 after Ste Hay, Ollie Morgan and Sid manage to gather evidence against Victor to prove that he was grooming kids to sell drugs. Juliet moves with Peri. She finds it hard to deal with people’s negatives opinions because of her past with selling drugs.
In May 2021, Juliet keeps receiving messages from an unknown number, which Peri thinks are because of an affair, but it is revealed that it is actually her mother, Donna-Marie Quinn who has been absent from the village for a few years. Juliet is adamant that she wants nothing to do with her and keeps ignoring her calls, but Peri wants to give her a chance and meet her so she sets up Donna-Marie and Juliet, which Juliet kicks off about but eventually she simmers down, noticing that her mum does seem different and ‘clean’ now. She explains this to Romeo but he doesn’t believe her, however Juliet is willing to give her a chance, despite Marnie Nightingale’s worry that Donna-Marie will let Juliet down yet again.
