Lee Boardman and Jennifer James are a familiar couple to Coronation Street fans. Lee played the wonderful villain Jez 'Steve McDonald, come on down' Quigley in Coronation Street and Jennifer played Rovers barmaid Geena Gregory.
The couple met on the set of Coronation Street and are now married. They set up their own acting school called Actor Tribe three years ago in Knutsford. Now following its success, they are expanding, with a new school in Heaton Mersey, Stockport.
Lee and Jenny are being supported in their venture by fellow Coronation Street stars and friends, who are patrons of Actor Tribe, including Stockport’s Sally Lindsay (Shelley Unwin) and Suranne Jones (Karen McDonald). Students at Actor Tribe have previously had masterclasses from Suranne, Sally and comedian Peter Kay, as well as meeting top agents, directors and casting directors.
Actor Tribe will be holding a meet and greet event on Sunday, September 11, between 12 noon and 2pm, at Natalie Wood School of Theatre and Dance, Winsor House, Heaton Mersey Industrial Estate, Battersea Road.
