The faces of 1960s Corrie

Inspired by Daran Little's 40 years of Coronation Street and having done some research on Corriepedia, I have come up with the top 12 faces of Coronation Street in every decade.

In the first of five posts, I look at the top 12 faces of Corrie in the 1960s. These are the faces who appeared the most during the decade.

  1. Annie Walker (781 episodes, 1960-1969)
  2. Jack Walker (773 episodes, 1960-1969)
  3. Elsie Tanner (765 episodes, 1960-1969)
  4. Len Fairclough (745 episodes, 1961-1969)
  5. Ena Sharples (708 episodes, 1960-1969)
  6. Minnie Caldwell (655 episodes, 1960-1969)
  7. Ken Barlow (645 episodes, 1960-1969)
  8. Albert Tatlock (605 episodes, 1960-1969)
  9. Valerie Tatlock/Barlow (560 episodes, 1961-1969)
  10. Lucille Hewitt (498 episodes, 1960-1969)
  11. Emily Nugent (490 episodes, 1961-1969)
  12. Dennis Taner (461 episodes, 1960-1968)
Average age: 44

Very interesting! 25% of the 1960s cast is currently in the show! Ken, Emily, and Dennis. Mildly surprised that Annie beat Elsie for number of episodes.

Ooops, I should qualify that -- 25% of the 1960s top 12 faces is currently in the show!

and those three still on the show plus one other are the only ones still alive, I think?

Llifon said...

Yes, Anne Reid (Valerie) being the other one.

Most probably Annie and Jack are the top characters because every episode had a scene in the Rovers, which both of them would appear in.

Annie is my all-time favourite Corrie character. Doris Speed was wonderful!
