Troubled Kirsty (Natalie Gumede) will hurt Tyrone again next week, leaving him with severe bruises.
Speaking to Soaplife, Halsall claimed: "I think he is genuinely in love with her so I don't think he has any doubts at all. He puts her anger down to her hormones and when she does lose her temper, she has apologised and begged for his forgiveness.
"She is the mother of his unborn child and so he wants to see the good in her, not the anger or the violence.
"I think he could put up with it for a while, as they're only small moments of violence and you hear stories of similar situations that last for years."
Meanwhile, the actor further suggested that Tyrone will not become terrified of Kirsty, explaining: "Natalie and I have tried to play the scenes realistically, so rather than have Tyrone cower in a corner, he stands his ground or walks out on her. But he feels helpless to stop her."
Of Tyrone confiding in Tina (Michelle Keegan) over the abuse, Halsall added: "At first, I think it's a relief for Tyrone to finally tell somebody about what has been going on, but then he's terrified Tina will tell other people and so begs her to keep quiet."
Tyrone and Tina's Coronation Street scenes air during next Friday's (August 3) double bill on ITV1.
