I thought so! I knew he played a part in Corrie. I wonder if Sylvia is ever going to come back?

I never watched the American shows Vaughn was in, but loved him in Hustle, and as Sylvia's ukulele mentor. Condolences, he seemed a lovely man.

Considering he is an American it's sad that I had to learn about his passing on the Corrie St. blog - didn't see or hear anything from the American media, then again we are being bombarded by the results of the election.
