Paul Loughran on playing Craig's dad in Coronation Street

Craig's dad Darryl will arrive on Coronation Street.  He's played by ex-Emmerdale actor Paul Loughran and he's interviewed at What's on TV today.

Paul says that Darryl isn't the best-intentioned human being.

He says: "He is ambiguous. I think he is genuinely pleased to see Craig, but his own needs supersede anything. He has a long history of criminality and asks Craig to smuggle drugs into prison for him."

Talking about his role on Coronation Street, Paul says: "I hope there is more to come from Darryl. It was reassuringly familiar being at Corrie. I was over the moon about the role, as I have always loved the show. I grew up with it and one of my first jobs out of drama school was to play a policeman in Coronation Street. I did some scenes with Bill Tarmey and Liz Dawn who played Jack and Vera Duckworth.

“This time round I really enjoyed working with Colson Smith who plays Craig and everybody was so welcoming. At one point, Barbara Knox who plays Rita came up to me and asked me if I was OK and whether or not I knew where to get a cup of tea. They were an exceptionally nice bunch of people.”
