Anne was yesterday (March 19) revealed as the killer of her son Frank and was seen resorting to desperate measures to cover up the truth - threatening Carla Connor (Alison King) with a knife and almost leaving Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor) for dead.
Frank's lifeless body had been found at Underworld earlier this month, sparking a whodunit mystery on the cobbles.
Taylor, reflecting on the storyline, told The Sun: "Anne has been the nastiest character I've ever played. I might have to get a bodyguard!
"Anne's been awful. She's been very unkind and cruel and the way she's turned on Sally is terrible. But at the end, Anne's on the verge of madness. I'm a criminal!"
She continued: "I hoped I'd get to play a character this evil one day. They are always more interesting and I'd like to do it again. It's nice to play someone with no redeeming features. You have to find out why people are like this."
Taylor filmed her final Coronation Street scenes some time ago, and is now in rehearsals for children's play The Butterfly Lion at Leicester's Curve Theatre.
"I play a sweet old lady," she confirmed. "I'm hoping it will be a nice change. I'm glad of the change, it does take over your life being in Corrie. I did find it draining - but brilliant too."
Coronation Street continues on Thursday (March 22) at 8.30pm on ITV1.
