There's a good interview with Jack P Shepherd, who plays David Platt in Coronation Street, over at the Radio Times website
Jack talks about the short film he's made with Ben Price, who plays his Corrie brother Nick Tilsley. You can read about the film, Taubman here.
Jack has celebrated 16 years on Coronation Street the week of April 4 (delayed posting due to spoilers). He tells Radio Times: “Yeah, I started Corrie when I was 12, so I’ve been David longer than I’ve been Jack, so that’s weird. It is over half my life, but it’s not like I’ve spent the time in prison, do you know what I mean?”
The interview goes on to discuss Corrie's current night shoots and whether the body of Callum will be found. Jack also talks about Paula Lane (Kylie Platt) leaving Corrie later this year.
