The brilliance of Tina O'Brien in her role as Sarah Platt
(This post was originally posted by Ruth Owen on the Coronation Street Blog in June 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)
Tina O'Brien, in her role as Sarah Platt is, currently, head and shoulders above the rest of the cast in her acting, with the one possible exception of Daniel Brocklebank.
Ever since Sarah became involved with Callum: his murder, her discovery that she was pregnant, the birth of Harry, the consequent post partum psychosis - through all of this we have had the pleasure of witnessing real acting talent from her.
Kylie and David, especially Kylie are concerned about her and so is Gail, but only in a gentle way. David will now be more concerned though after Sarah told him that Callum is still alive.
What will happen to Sarah now? Surely David and Kylie will want to keep a close eye on her for fear that she will say something too revelatory concerning Callum. But Sarah's mind has become dangerously unbalanced and no doubt she needs some treatment. David though will contest such a decision, again because he doesn't trust her to keep Callum's murder under wraps even if Sarah is saying that Callum is still alive. Confusing!
Whatever happens in the storyline, I am completely impressed by Tina O'Brien's acting. She is yet young so may get even better. I just hope she sticks around; though with the convincing intensity of her performances, it may prove hard to keep her on the cobbles.
