Beverley Callard 'wasn't sure' about Coronation Street plot

Share article:

everley Callard "wasn't too sure" about her latest "Coronation Street" storyline.

The 61-year-old actress was less than convinced about playing out a plot in which her character Liz and Jim McDonald's (Charlie Lawson) late daughter Katie, who is now going by the name Hannah Gilmore (Hannah Ellis Ryan), was going to come back from the dead, but she now admits the complex story is "wonderful" to act out.

She said: "I have to admit when they first told me about this story, they said, "Your daughter is coming back from the dead". You think, "OK ... I'm not too sure about this."

"But the way they've done it and the way that they are doing it, there are more twists and turns and it's so wonderful as an actress to play.

"She's so vulnerable as well because of the Liz and Johnny thing, and she's feeling very dejected and lonely.

"And of course, there's this attraction with Liz and Jim and they cannot fight that at all."

Viewers have seen that Jim and Hannah are actually a couple rather than father and daughter, and the pair have hatched a plan to steal Liz and his son Steve McDonald's (Simon Gregson) money - but Beverley has dropped a huge hint that Liz will ensure Jim gets his comeuppance.

Quizzed on who might have their "ultimate revenge" on Jim, Beverley replied: "It's got to be Liz hasn't it? It's most definitely got to be Liz.

"I think there's quite a long time to go before that could or would happen. I didn't confirm anything, I promise you.

"In the end he begins to feel quite guilty and he can see that he still really loves Liz, he's got Steven as well."

Beverley has enjoyed acting alongside Charlie again and newcomer Hannah, so much so the trio and Simon are often in "big trouble" with producers for laughing so much on set.

Speaking on "This Morning", she added: "Charlie and I love working together. When he came back we just instantly fit. Working with Charlie is like Beverley putting her slippers on. I love working with him.

"Of course, we get the giggles constantly. Simon Gregson does, too, and so does Hannah now. The four of us together are in big trouble. It's a nightmare."
