Paula Lane grateful for Coronation Street stepping stone

Share article:

Paula Lane is grateful to "Coronation Street" for giving her the "building blocks" to "create her career".

The 32-year-old star - who appeared on the ITV soap as Kylie Platt from 2010 to 2016 - admits her time on the show was a "rollercoaster", and she is pleased to have landed roles in productions "Be More Martyn" and "Kinky Boots" following her stint on the cobbles.

She said: "Life is wonderful. Family is the most important thing to me. Corrie was a rollercoaster and it's given me the building blocks to create my career.

"My last role as Rachel in #BeMoreMartyn was equally as special - a true life lesson in believing you can achieve anything if you work hard enough. I find it fascinating that both my roles post-Corrie ring out the message, "Just be who you want to be"."

While Paula enjoyed her time on the soap, she would've liked to have had a more direct route to the Manchester-based set.

She said: "When I worked on "Corrie", I always wished the tram had an express line from Victoria to Media City."

Despite departing the cobbles a few years ago, Paula has kept in touch with her former co-star Jennie McAlpine (Fiz Stape), and loves going to her restaurant for some chill out time.
