William Roache doesn't know his Corrie castmates


William Roache, who plays Coronation Street's Ken Barlow, was interviewed on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch last weekend.   

Anyway, in the interview, William said that he doesn’t know the names of some of his castmates because Coronation Street has become so big.  It's hardly surprising, really.

He said that it was difficult to know everyone on the show because of how many characters now appear on the soap compared to just 15 when it first launched in 1960.

‘When we started there were only 15 cast members and we were all in every episode. That’s when you had that lovely community feel. You could all go off in a bus to Blackpool. You couldn’t do that now. It’s too big. You go in and you work with your family, my wonderful, dysfunctional family. You do your scenes and you go home. Some of the others, you might meet them in the green room for a cup of tea but you might not see them for weeks.’

‘Now there is no rehearsal, you just turn up and need to know your lines. A scene can be over in 20 minutes.'
