Corrie star wants David, Kylie scenes

David Platt from Coronation Street


Coronation Street star Jack P. Shepherd has revealed that he is keen to film more scenes with the show's new recruit Paula Lane.

The actor - who plays twisted David Platt - explained that he has enjoyed watching Lane's portrayal of Becky McDonald's irresponsible half-sister Kylie Turner in recent months.

Speaking to the Inside Soap Yearbook 2011, Shepherd commented: "I'd love to do more with Paula Lane, who plays Kylie. I have had one scene with her in The Rovers.

"She's a great little actress and the character is a breath of fresh air. It would be good to work together more."

He continued: "I think Paula has settled in really well. I was watching her first few scenes and she's very good, but she's worried that everyone is going to hate her because she's a bad character. I've been a bad boy for over five years though, and I don't get any stick from viewers.

"If anything, people love to hate the baddies. So I told her not to worry about it. She's the spitting image of Katherine Kelly, who plays Becky, as well. It was a really great bit of casting."

Lane recently claimed that Kylie is "a very mixed-up girl" and "misunderstood". Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
