John Michie on being a Street sex symbol

(This post was originally posted by me on the Coronation Street Blog in July 2012.)

John Michie, who plays Coronation Street's Karl Munro, gives a good interview to The Sun today and says he's a bit taken by surprise that young women find him sexy.

He says: “I was out with some of the boys in the cast a few weeks ago, somewhere I was a little bit too old to be, and I was stunned by the reaction of younger women. I thought to myself, ‘I should have joined this show ages ago!’ There is a lot of female affection for Karl. Fans want photos and kisses on the cheeks. There was a lot of attention and we caused a bit of a stir. I’m a middle-aged man but all these young women came up. It was quite flattering and very surprising.”

He also says the fan mail that comes in for him at Corrie is a bit racy too: "We get loads of fan mail. Because Karl has this young female following, the mail can get a bit steamy. It makes me blush, actually. I’m blushing now."

John says he hopes to stay in the soap as long as possible: “I’m loving it. As long as it carries on like this, I’m staying here. Why would you leave? I’ve been pretty busy for a few months, but if you’re in Corrie you might as well be in it and go for it. I’m happy to do as much as they throw my way, really.”
