Mikey North interview: Gary's killed Rick!



What led Gary to kill Rick?

It was self-defence… in Gary’s defence. Rick came at him with a shovel and well it was literally a fight to the death, and he’s got to fight to survive. Luckily, he manages to grab a rock in time and well… he sorts him out.

How does Gary feel knowing he is capable of murder?

I think it is quite hard for him to take at first. I think he thought he was at rock bottom before, but this now makes it even worse. This will definitely have a knock on effect for Gary, but I am sure he will pick himself up from here… the only way is up.

Does he hold any guilt?

It takes a while to sink in… but he starts to feel the guilt more and more as it hits home. But Rick was the one trying to kill Gary, so he doesn’t really have a leg to stand on.

How do you think viewers will react to Gary as the new ‘Corrie supervillain’?

I don’t know to be honest, we will have to see. I like watching Rick myself, I think he’s a really good baddie so I was sad to see him go. But hopefully the audience can understand why Gary did it.

What was your reaction when you were told you were going to be the new Corrie murderer?

In a way…I enjoy playing the big storylines, so being given this is just another exciting challenge for me. And I’m sure there will be more to come.

With being responsible for killing Rana with the factory collapsing, how does the killing of Rick differ?

Well I suppose Gary didn’t know he would end up being responsible for Rana’s death as he didn’t know the factory would eventually collapse. And with this happening, it has definitely had an effect on Gary. Even though it was self- defence, intending to actually attack Rick definitely makes the two a lot different.

Do you think Gary will ever mentally recover from this?

Probably not. I can’t see how he’ll ever get past it. He’s lost everything and now he’s killed two people. But I think it is the start of a new Gary Windass.

Corrie star Liam supports Mencap in Learning Disability Week


Liam Bairstow, who plays Alex Needham in Coronation Street, is an ambassador for the Mencap charity. Liam visited Virgin Money in Leeds this week to announce Mencap and Virgin Money’s year-long partnership, at the start of Learning Disability Week which runs this week until Friday 23 June 2019.

Liam from Bradford, who has Down’s Syndrome, was the first actor with a learning disability to land a role in a British soap.


He said: “I'm very excited to be an ambassador for Mencap - I love all the work they do. They do so much for people with a learning disability and I'm very proud to be a part of it. I hope that by being an ambassador for Mencap I can help raise awareness of learning disability and show that people with a learning disability are just ordinary people. Down’s Syndrome is not a negative world. It’s a beautiful world. I am proud and happy of who and what I am. Having Down's Syndrome has not held me back, and I believe everyone should be treated the same and be able to achieve their dreams."
