Simon Gregson: Connor McIntyre should be the next James Bond

Share article:

Simon Gregson thinks Connor McIntyre should be cast in the next "James Bond".

The "Coronation Street" star thinks his co-star, who portrays Pat Phelan in the soap, depicts the "best villain" on screens at the moment and should bag the supporting role in the spy franchise when Daniel Craig steps down as the secret agent in 2019.

Speaking to Inside Soap magazine: "I'm absolutely head over heels in love with the way Connor McIntyre plays Phelan. Connor is such a beautiful human being, but he's just the best villain I've ever seen.

"If he's not in the next James Bond film, there's something seriously wrong with the world. So vote for Connor, because the rest of the soap villains are rubbish!"

The 42-year-old actor's alter-ego Steve McDonald - a hapless cabbie who seems to find himself in awkward situations - is world away from Phelan, but he doesn't mind because he thoroughly enjoys doing the comedic scenes.

He explained: "Obviously the comedy is better for me personally, because if you're having a laugh at work, the day goes quicker. But getting those dramatic scenes out there and having a reaction from the audience is very rewarding ...

"When you're doing all the comedy stuff, you're basically just going into work and having a laugh, and someone's giving you money for that! It's quite a good living, and it's what everyone would like."
