Nigel Havers: 'My Corrie role gets darker'

Rex Features

Coronation Street newcomer Nigel Havers has warned that his character Lewis Archer has a dark side.

The veteran actor, best known for playing Lord Andrew Lindsay in 1981 movie Chariots Of Fire, signed up for his role in the ITV1 soap last October and was recently seen on screen for the first time.

Lewis has been introduced as a new love interest for long-standing Weatherfield resident Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls), who was bowled over by his charming ways when they met at a ball last month.

Discussing the part in an interview with This Is Nottingham, Havers revealed: "I couldn't resist the idea of doing Coronation Street. I loved the idea of being Audrey's new man. I'm a huge Corrie fan."

He added: "I started in Corrie a month ago and I'm there until July. I gather my character has a real dark side but I don't know what it is yet."

Havers is currently juggling his role on the programme with a part in Jack And The Beanstalk at Nottingham's Theatre Royal. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
