Did Kirsty's mum Alison Soames or dad Edwin Soames look familiar to you tonight on Coronation Street? Well, they should do, or at least Kirsty's dad should jog a memory or two. He's played by actor David Lonsdale who's been on Coronation Street before - as Peter Barlow! This was back in 1986 to 1988 and was David's TV debut appearance. He's also appeared on Corrie as an investigator looking for John Stape, which we blogged here.
Check out his other work at his personal website.
Actress Dawn Hope, who's playing Kirsty's mum Alison Soames, also has a wealth of TV and stage work under her belt. Check out her IMDB entry here.
