Video: Graeme Hawley on This Morning

Graeme Hawley, who plays Coronation Street's John Stape, was interviewed on This Morning today. Viewers in the UK can watch the video here and for those who can't see it, here's a synopsis of what the Stapester said...

Graeme reckons Corrie fans are behind John Stape, that they like him and support him, that they have sympathy for him because he messes up. He admits that John's made mistakes but that he has only good intentions at heart. He also reminds us of John's time in prison for kidnapping Rosie Webster and says that John's made bad decisions often in the past.

In real life, Graeme talks about his new baby, little Audrey who he swears isn't named after Audrey Roberts! She's nine months old now and says he'd love to get a picture of baby Audrey with Sue Nicholls dressed as Audrey Roberts outside of Audrey's salon on the Street.

He's also starring in a soon to be released new film set in Blackburn called Steps to Tread.

Graeme is a good actor and has developed his character well. However, it should be about time that he is given a more conventional role.....It would be nice to see John Stape get his act together. John is educated and smart despite his shortcomings. Maybe he can now turn his life around and become a succcess.

Kudos to Graeme but his character doesn't just make mistakes, he's a eejit!

Yeah, I second that Tvor - I was just going to comment that no one has sympathy for him. You either liked him from the start and still do, or you never liked him it seems with us fans. He's one of those characters you either love or hate, not hate to love or love to hate even.
