Macca's main storyline focuses on his relationship with Cassie Turner (Sharni Vinson) and repeated domestic abuse of her. Baines spoke about the story on the serial's official website: "It’s something that happens in society and it’s a shame and any of the girls who are out there I think they need to talk to somebody even if it’s not a friend or a family - possibly counselling or something like that – because I think that they might get stuck into the little world that gets created in a violent relationship.” He added "I’ve learnt since playing the role of Macca that it’s a strange way of thinking, I can understand to an extent how it happens, but I certainly think that people in that situation have got some issues and I’ve got no cure for it. I wish I could say that all they need to do is ‘this’ and that will fix it, but I don’t know."
