Her debut came to her at the age of three years, as she toddled onstage in a nightdress to sing a song about a golliwog. Two years later, she made her acting debut as the velvet-suited infant Prince of Rome in a Victorian melodrama, called The Royal Divorce. She left acting to work for, amongst others, the Guinness brewery in Manchester, as a clerk.

Returning to acting relatively late in life, she had a small role in the Stanley Baker vehicle Hell Is a City , set in her native Manchester. In , close friend and writer of Shadow Squad Tony Warren created the soap opera Coronation Street, purportedly writing the character of Annie Walker specifically for her.

She appeared in 1, episodes and was one of only a handful of original cast members still appearing in the s.

Even though the British Actor has romanced his female co-star ” Bhavna Limbachia” in the television series “Coronation Street()” on screen but in real life this actor seems really uninterested in dating any of his co-stars.

The other pilot shot was the eventual Episode 3 , which also featured the characters of Minnie Caldwell and Martha Longhurst although not played by Margot Bryant and Lynne Carol. The finished products were shown to Granada’s weekly Programme Committee, which included the network’s founders Sidney and Cecil Bernstein, future Managing Director Denis Forman and others.

The committee unanimously panned the programme, expressing doubts about using the local dialect in a drama, putting out a soap opera in primetime, and giving a negative impression of the north to the rest of the country. As no alternative would be ready in time, Coronation Street went ahead with its scheduled live transmission date of Friday 9th December but Elton was ordered to find a replacement as soon as possible.

News of the committee’s verdict soon spread to the production team, leading Harry Elton to perform an act of showmanship meant to prove their programme’s viability. On monitors placed around the Granada building, a lunchtime screening of the dry run took place for all staff, who then filled in questionnaires giving their views on what they had seen. Although praise was not unanimous, many responded favourably to the characters and their everyday problems.

The positive feedback helped the cast and crew prepare for transmission with a renewed confidence. Further casting took place prior to 5th December , when rehearsals began on the transmitted version of Episode 1. Arthur Lowe , playing draper and lay preacher Leonard Swindley , was one of the last actors cast. The last remaining part to be cast was Ena Sharples.

After the first dry run, actress Nita Valerie was deemed unsuitable and replaced with Nan Marriott-Watson , who subsequently turned the role down. As rehearsals were due to begin, Granada ordered that the character be excised from the script.

Her sacking was so controversial that fellow actress Violet Carson Ena Sharples threatened to quit, but she was eventually persuaded not to. Many, including Coronation Street writer H. Kershaw, saw the killing of Martha as a desperate move to boost viewer ratings.

And she has trouble getting up in the morning – look at that bed hair above. However John Stape never bit anyone that I can recall whilst Hope thinks teacher would make a decent lunch!

Annie Walker Doris Speed , landlady of the Rovers Return was ordered by the brewery to take on a resident cellar man after the pub had been broken into. Annie was instantly impressed by the quietly spoken, dapper Fred with his old world charm and impeccable manners. This, like so much else of Fred, was just a front to cover his true self: One of Fred’s early storylines included l a brief fling with Vera Duckworth Elizabeth Dawn and brought her back to the Rovers to have afternoon tea with Annie, but nothing came of the relationship.

Fred was unlikeable and devious, and often did things for the sheer devilment, such as tossing bread on top of Eddie Yeats ‘s Geoffrey Hughes dustcart to attract pigeons in order to ruin his chances of winning the Best Kept Dust-Cart competition. Despite the fact that he liked to think he was in charge of the pub, Annie dominated him, Bet Lynch Julie Goodyear ridiculed him and Betty Turpin Betty Driver did nothing to hide her contempt for him; the only person he did carry some clout over, cleaner Hilda Ogden Jean Alexander , spoke to him with sarcasm and only begrudgingly obeyed him, after being prompted by Bet or Betty.

Billy Walker Kenneth Farrington sacked Fred after goading him into punching him.
