Gray O'Brien doesn't want your knickers

There's a nice, long interview today in the Daily Record with Corrie's Gray O'Brien. He talks about his character Tony Gordon and mentions that although he plays a murderer, he's also the (some would say) sexy boss of a knicker factory yet fans haven't sent any knickers through the post! I suppose that's a throwback to when fans used to send things like earrings to Julie Goodyear? He's also not had old ladies whop him with handbags in Tesco and I think he's just as glad on both scores. Still, the fans have grown to "love to hate" Tony (I know I have) and he's enjoying the ride.

He's not saying whether Tony will survive his upcoming heart attack but does hope it might make people think about their health (i.e. don't murder someone, the stress could bring it on?) Gray knows lots of people that have had heart attacks and realizes a healthy lifestyle and reducing stress are important so he does his best on that count.

He also talks about his lovely co-star, Alison King in glowing terms. As well, he's going to be in panto in Manchester this season in a production of Aladdin. That may mean some time off from the cobbles but does it mean Tony dies or does Tony go to jail? We do know that he's going to make what he thinks is a deathbed confession to Roy Cropper. If he survives the heart attack, will Roy go to the police with his information? Will he be believed or will Tony manage to talk himself out of it? All this is yet to come! Stay tuned!
