Jane Danson isn't Mrs. Square Pants

There's a nice interview with Jane Danson in the Mirror today. There's also a few photos of her modeling some fun outfits, too!

In the interview, she talks about having her husband stay home with the babies. It's part and parcel of them both being actors, really. She's the one who has the full time work at the moment so he's happy to stay home and raise the children. And being involved in a major storyline about infidelity has made her see that there are other sides to the situation. She never thought she'd forgive such a transgression but seeing Leanne fight to stay with Peter, having a child involved, makes her realize that there are sometimes circumstances where you would try to work things out.

She doesn't think Peter and Leanne will have a smooth road through marraige (what soap union ever does?)  but reckons now the former wild-child Leanne has finally grown up and settled down. She's been accused of being a "goody goody" herself by former co-star Vicky Entwhistle (Janice Battersby) but insists she's no "Mrs. Square Pants". She points out that she's got the responsibility of a family while Vicky still loves to party, something Jane doesn't get a lot of time to do these days, juggling work and home.

I've always liked Leanne and I hope she's going to stick around! Whatever happens between her and Peter, I hope she stays away from Nasty Nick!

I have always liked Leanne as well, its true she has now grown up and is far from the multi hair coloured character that came in and wrote rude things on Alma's pitcure in Freschos. I always think she has such nice hairstyles. However, I do feel "big" storylines should sometimes be given to other characters instead of just concentrating constantly on certain actors.

How could any right thinking person prefer Nick Tilsley to Peter Barlow? It's not even close. And why does Nick look older than Peter, when Nick is supposed to be 15 years younger?

That picture just confirms it, Nick Tisley always reminds me of Plug from the Beano. One of the greatest acts of mis-casting in Corrie history.

Yes, I see the resemblance too, Frosty!! Everyone should call him Plug from now on...

How come she's the one character who doesn't pay for all the tricks she's pulled?
