Interview with Chris Fountain on playing Tommy Duckworth

There's an interview with Chris Fountain, who plays Coronation Street's Tommy Duckworth, in today's Sun. It's one of those interviews with a lot of words, that takes up a lot of space, but doesn't say much at all. It does however have a picture of Chris Fountain with his top off, which if you're a Chris/Tommy fan is probably worth a look.

Chris talks about his kissing scenes with soap's official sexiest woman Michelle Keegan, who plays Tommy's girlfriend Tina, and says he misses his own girlfriend as they have a long distance relationship.

What I did find interesting was that Chris was a child stage actor. He was in a tour of Les Miserables when he was ten and played the Artful Dodger in a tour of Oliver. At 13, he had his first TV role in Bob & Rose, before going on to appear in Emmerdale, Where The Heart Is and The Royal before joining Hollyoaks at 15.

You'd think he'd have picked up some acting skills by now. I do not like this character at all. If he's what the producers had in mind as a replacement for Jack Duckworth (along with Gobby Tina replacing Vera).they've lost their minds.

These two should hit the bricks.
