We've asked before on the Coronation Street Blog for fans to name their favourite characters. But who are your favourite ACTORS? Which of the cast do you think can act their socks off and leave the others standing.
All we want to know is who you would choose, if pressed to name the three actors in the cast who you feel are the best at their game.
For me, it would be the three in the picture above.
Tina O'Brien as Sarah Platt never fails to impress me with her timing and emotion. She's always believable.
David Neilson as Roy Cropper, well, he's just sublime. Always has been, always will be.
And Richard Hawley, as Johnny Connor, is very believable too. With some of the cast you get the feeling that they're acting, they're saying the lines, going through the motions. I never get that from Richard Hawley and fully believe in what he's doing with the character of Johnny.
I have many more favourites, of course, but it's a good exercise to focus the mind and pick your top three. Who would you choose?
