Sally Carman: Simon Gregson is 'dream to work with'

Share article:

Sally Carman says Simon Gregson is a "dream on every level" to work with.

The "Coronation Street" star loves acting alongside the soap stalwart - who has played Steve McDonald on the show since 1989 - and she hopes his hilarity comes across in his portrayal of the cabbie.

She said: "I've been doing quite a lot of scenes with Si Gregson, who plays Steve. He's such a dream on every level.

"If that can come across it's just enjoyable to watch isn't it?"

Sally's drug and alcohol addict alter-ego Abi Franklin has had some dark storylines, but she hopes she can make the soap's fans laugh during her more light-hearted scenes.

She said: "I think if you're sat down in your house at 7.30 and you watch this show five times a week and you've got someone who is always doing awful things to all your beloved friends, or you feel like they're your friends because you see them every week, you've just got to line that up haven't you?

"If you can bring a smile through all the darker stuff, if you can make someone smile while japing about or just being a bit nonplussed, it's quite a good way of looking at it."

Before appearing in Weatherfield, Sally played a prostitute in "Shameless" and a convict's partner in "Prisoners" Wives", and she loves taking on "flawed women" roles.

Speaking on the "Justice" podcast, she added: "I'm extremely grateful. I love playing strong women, I love playing flawed women, I love comedy, I love all of that.

"I've had some very choice characters to play, but I'm delighted with every single one of them."
