Fans were in awe of how much Tina O’Brien, the actress from Coronation Street, looked like her daughter during Ryan Thomas’s evening with them.
On Thursday, July 21, Scarlett, 13, and Ryan, best known for his role as Jason on Corrie, attended a party at Peter Street Kitchen in Manchester to mark the opening of the restaurant’s new menu.
Ryan’s younger brother Scott Thomas, whose company, Social PR, organized the event, as well as Ryan and Scott’s mother Gail and sister-in-law Caroline, who is married to Scott’s twin, Adam, accompanied the couple.
Ryan shared some images of the family having a good time together on Instagram.
He was photographed with Scarlett, whose long brunette hair was done in gentle waves and kept away from her face by a pair of sunglasses, in one picture.
She accessorized with a pair of cream high-waisted flares, a white ruffled crop top, and some sneakers.
Ryan donned a black and brown checked blazer over a pair of beige trousers and a white t-shirt.
“Manchester for the #PSKMenupremiere @peterstreetkitchen,” he said as the post’s caption.
Dean Gaffney, a former EastEnders actor, was one among the first people to respond with the message: “Growing up so quickly,” along with a red heart emoji.
The father-daughter pictures received positive feedback from Ryan’s followers, with one person writing: “Stunning dad & daughter.”
Such a great picture of you two, someone else commented, while someone else added, “Beautiful picture of u both.”
The similarity between Scarlett and her mother Tina, who portrays Sarah Barlow on Coronation Street, was also noted by his supporters.
“Scarlett looks so like her mommy,” one follower commented. “She’s grown so fast,” another follower remarked. “Beautiful little lady.”
Scarlett has recently been cast in a new season of Waterloo Road, where she will be joined by her uncle Adam, who will reprise his role as Donte Charles. Scarlett is expected to follow in her parents’ footsteps.
