Gloria Price to be a classic Corrie matriarch

Sue Johnston: Coronation Street's Gloria Price is "a horror"

There's an excellent interview in The Radio Times with Sue Johnston, who appears on Coronation Street next Wednesday as Gloria Price.


“One of my strongest memories from 30 years ago was being in the ladies loos when Doris Speed [Annie Walker] entered. I froze. This was Doris Speed! I stood in awe as she chatted away to me ten to the dozen. She then brought her Annie Walker wig out of her bag still talking away. She popped it on, snapped into role, left the toilets and walked straight into the Rovers. I thought about that on the first day that I walked onto the Rovers set and had a chuckle to myself.”

Read the full interview here.

Sue Johnson is a great actress but like Stephanie Cole, she will make a great character, we will grow to like her and then she will disappear for parts and pastures new. The obsession with famous faces is so against what this programme used to be.

Frosty I agree. I love Sue but cant help think she will not stay or we'll have to put up with the character being off screen whilst she persues other projects, suppose we'll have to wait and see- Micky

Stephanie hasn't left, Frostie - they had to schedule the Milton visit as she needed a break to have important surgery. She should be back before too long.
