IN FOR THE LONG HAUL

Soap World - - THE GOSS! -

A 58-year vet­eran of Coro­na­tion Street, orig­i­nal star WIL­LIAM ROACHE has said he’ll never quit his role as Ken Bar­low be­cause re­tire­ment doesn’t en­ter his thoughts. “I en­joy what I’m do­ing and I’m lucky in that I’m in a job where I can age. I’m ac­tu­ally fall­ing to bits in front of peo­ple’s eyes and that’s what I’m meant to do,” en­thuses the 85-year-old.

The cast for The Cry, the ABC’s up­com­ing drama co-pro­duc­tion with the BBC, has been fi­nalised. Jenna Cole­man, the star of pe­riod drama Victoria, and Top of the Lake’s EWEN LES­LIE will head­line the four­part psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller along­side Off­spring’s ASHER KEDDIE and ALEX DIMITRIADES. Join­ing them will be The

Crown’s STELLA GONET, Rom­per Stom­per’s MARKELLA

KAVENAGH and Went­worth’s SHAREENA CLANTON. It chron­i­cles the lives of Joanna (Cole­man) and her hus­band Alis­tair (Les­lie) who travel with their baby from Scot­land to Aus­tralia to visit Alis­tair’s mother El­iz­a­beth (Gonet) and to fight for cus­tody of Alis­tair’s daugh­ter Chloe (Kavenagh) against his Aus­tralian ex-wife Alexan­dra (Keddie). It sparks a tragedy that al­ters the cou­ple’s mar­riage and dis­in­te­grates Joanna’s psy­chol­ogy. The Cry will air on ABC later in 2018.
