My name is Char Lewis, and I live in Brantford, Ontario, Canada.
How long have you been watching Corrie?
I have been watching Corrie since the 1970's. I started watching with my mom, back in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
Who are your favourite female and male characters - and the reasons why?
Male character: I really like Tyrone. He's a solid friend, and he's a stand-up guy, never does anything bad. He's the type of guy that every girl hopes for.
Female Character: I think that would have to be Rita Tanner. She's the one who is the wise one of the street. She's honest, generous and really cares about her friends. She doesn't let anyone take advantage of her, she is a strong woman as well as independent. She reminds me of my sister, and I think my sister even looks like her. (Well, she will in the future). I would love to be more like Rita.
(Editor's note: I think we need to see a photo of your sister for a Rita look-a-like!)
What's been some of your favourite Corrie storylines over the years?
I have become mesmerized by the Tyrone/Kirsty storyline. I realize that this really happens, and men are either to embarrassed, or too proud to say anything. It's a real tragedy.
And what would your fantasy Corrie storyline be?
I would love to see Sean finally find the one true love of his life, for keeps, and for Dev and Sunita to get back together for good. I also want to see Tracy get her comeuppance, and finally be put in her place in front of everyone. It would be fun to see Les Battersby come back just to pester Stella.
Have you any snippets or news about meeting any of the Corrie cast, or trips to the set, etc., that you'd like to share?
Oh, I wish I did. I would love to visit the cobbles, and meet some of the actors.
