The actress admitted that it would be "fabulous" to explore the storyline and predicted that Kylie would be a good mother to Max.
Speaking of the possibility of Kylie regaining custody of Max, she told The Mirror: "She will be nervous because she's never been a proper mum to him. And that is going to be fabulous as an actress to explore - if we get him!
"I think the support from David and Gail will enable her to be a good mum. She's had a tough time; she's always going to be thinking, 'What can I do for him that will make his life better than the life I had?'"
Asked who she thinks Max would be better off with, Lane added: "She wouldn't say Becky. Maybe adoptive parents for a clean slate, but then deep down she has this feeling that she's his mum and he should be with her. There is a scene where she says to Becky, 'Well, you're not his mum, I am'. She's actually owning that authority now."
Lane recently described Kylie's mum-in-law Gail as a "mother figure".
