ITV Coronation Street boss shares Jude Riordan fear as he lifts lid on show future
The head of Coronation Street expressed his worry about Jude Riordan’s future on the program.
Since he joined the group in 2020, the gifted young man from St. Helens has become a fan favorite for his depiction of Sam Blakeman. Jude, 11, won Best Newcomer at the National Television Awards, thus his performance has been singled out for acclaim.
Iain MacLeod discussed the future plans for Corrie during his appearance on today’s Loose Women. Hope Stape’s future was revealed by the show’s producer as she maintains her fixation on her serial murderer father, John.
In the program, Hope, who is portrayed by Isabella Flanagan, is Sam’s cousin. Iain said on Loose Women that he hopes the two will continue their path toward adulthood on the Cobbles because they frequently share the screen together.
He stated: “We’re using PJ & Duncan as our reference pair for Hope and Sam. What if we could nurture this bond between these two 10-year-old children over the course of ten years?”
Iain praised the two budding stars but said he was worried they would soon be taken by bigger organizations.
“Those two actors are obviously very good. They might very well be gone to Hollywood by the time they’re 14,” he continued.
