There are comments over on Digital Spy from former Coronation Street actress Sarah Lancashire on what she describes as a "ludicrous prejudice" towards soap actors.
Lancashire, who played the wonderful Raquel in Corrie for six years in the 1990s, has of course gone on to appear in a long line of successful television dramas since her departure. While the actress does not rule out a return to Corrie in the future, she does state that she sees soap operas as a good training ground before moving on to other things.
So do you agree with Sarah Lancashire that soap actors are not treated with the respect they deserve?
Does this prejudice still exist even though recent times have seen the likes of Katherine Kelly go on to great things? Also, would you like to see Sarah back in Weatherfield one day?
