The actress, who announced last year that she is leaving the soap after 14 years of playing Janice Battersby, apparently wants to become a Shakespearean actress and star in period dramas both on stage and TV.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: "Vicky was being absolutely serious when she told people about her intentions for life after the Street. She was adamant that she would love to do Shakespeare or period characters but she also realised that would mean having to tone her voice down and lose the accent she has.
"Other people have done it, so why shouldn't she? There were a few eyebrows raised when people started discussing what she had been saying but that is because her accent is so distinctive and everybody associates Vicky with that broad twang."
Entwistle filmed her final scenes for the soap last week. A guest at her leaving party said: "We were a bit shocked to hear she fancied doing Shakespeare. Vicky is a bubbly, outgoing woman and it was just hard to imagine her all serious."
