Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien doubts she’ll be on the soap as long as Bill Roache

Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien doubts she’ll be on the soap opera as long as veteran Bill Roache – and admits she “dreams” of starring in more historical dramas.

The 39-year-old actress told MailOnline she would change her look for her next role, dying and cutting her hair to star in a show like Netflix series The Crown.

Mum-of-two Tina has warned her 13-year-old daughter Scarlett, who is appearing in Waterloo Road, that television isn’t as “glamorous” as she might believe and that she should be “friendly” to everyone on set, regardless from her job title.

‘I just want to be in a corset’: Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien doubts she’ll be on the soap opera as long as veteran Bill Roache – and admits she ‘dreams’ about it in more act in historical dramas

Speaking at the Football For Change fundraising gala, held in partnership with MailOnline on Thursday, Tina said: “I love that Coronation Street is such a home away from home. There’s something calming about it. Even the theme tune is like a little blanket.

“It’s weird because I’ve never seen myself on Coronation Street for so long, I love it but I can’t imagine it will be forever. I’m not sure I’ll be as lucky as William Roache. This is a very specific character and a very specific person. He’s incredible and we’re all in awe of him.

“Chances are it probably won’t happen for me. I love my job – I love it. It’s an amazing atmosphere on set. I have a real fondness for historical drama. When I left the show I was doing The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister.

“I love historical drama, so that’s my heart for me. I would dye my hair brown, I would cut it off, I just want to be in a corset. Put me in period drama and I’ll be happy. I recently started watching The Crown from the beginning and I love it.

Bill Roache, 90, has played Coronation Street’s Ken Barlow for over 60 years and holds a Guinness World Record for longest-running TV soap star.

He has portrayed the character of Ken since the very first episode of the soap, which aired in December 1960.

Tina, who played Sarah Platt from 1999 to 2008 and returned to the Cobbles in 2015, is now watching her daughter Scarlett follow in her footsteps.

She shares Scarlett with her former partner Ryan Thomas, who played her on-screen husband, and has advised the teenager on the dos and don’ts as an aspiring actress.

She said: “My daughter is working on a TV show right now, she’s doing Waterloo Road for a year. it’s so strange

“We have a lot of conversations and I told her it’s not as glamorous as you think, the hours are very long, make sure you know your lines, be nice to everyone, it doesn’t matter what rank – and that is the best advice. Or the better version, don’t be ad***.’

Tina, who is also mum to son Beau, seven, from her marriage to husband Adam Crofts, says she has no plans to have any more children – and has taken up wall climbing to stay in shape.

She said: “Family life is great – my husband Adam, my two children, it’s all really good. Two kids are more than enough. Scarlett is 13 and Beau is seven, so they’re old age now.

“I’ve been trying to get into fitness training recently. I’m not very good at going to the gym because I find it boring, but now I swim a lot and I’ve also started rock climbing, which sounds really weird, but I love it.

“I take my son and sometimes my husband with me. It’s a way for me to use my own bodyweight and do something that makes me feel good without being in the gym.”

Tina was joined by her Corrie co-star Samia Longchambon at Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester on Thursday to raise money for Jamie Carragher’s charity Football For Change.
