When Coronation Street cast the perfect characters

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog September 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

There have been a few comments left on the Coronation Street Blog and on our twitter feed saying casting actor Paul Loughran as Craig's dad is another example of perfect casting on Corrie.

We can only agree!  And here are some more perfect castings, where the actors actually do look as if they could be family members in real life too.

Father and daughter Kevin and Sophie Webster.

Mother and daughter Audrey Roberts and Gail Rodwell

Mother and daughter Blanche Hunt and Deirdre Barlow

Mother and son Gail Rodwell and David Platt.

All of the original Connor clan with their dark, glossy coats - including Ozzy!  Even though Carla wasn't born a Connor, she fitted in perfectly too.

Are there any more perfectly cast family members you'd include in our list? Leave a comment and let us know!

Can't wait to find out that Freddie is Luke's dad (or grandad). They look so much alike it's a storyline in waiting.
