Jennie McAlpine likes playing 'good' characters

Tuesday May 7, 2013

Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine has said she is glad never to have played an evil character in the soap.

Jennie, who plays long-time Coronation Street resident Fiz Stape, is happy to have a part that the nation loves.

She said: "I feel very, very lucky to have played a good character who is nice.

"Sometimes Fiz has done bad or stupid things but luckily viewers have always been on my side which is a good thing, because I can't imagine going out and people having a go at me - I couldn't do it."

Fiz has recently been reunited with childhood sweetheart Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall), drawing comparisons from some viewers with Jack and Vera Duckworth.

Jennie, 29, said: "The comparison has been made but I would never dream of making that comparison myself because they go down in Coronation Street history as absolute legends and it's an honour to be compared to them.

"They are totally irreplaceable and I don't think they could be replaced.”
