26: Michelle Collins - From the Square, to the Street, to the Wood…
< 1 day ago
Michelle Collins must have one of the most recognisable faces in the UK as over the last 30 years she’s had long, prominent and starring roles in two of the nation’s favourite soaps – AND with some of the juiciest story lines. First she was stalking the Square in EastEnders as bad girl Cindy Beale and then she was conquering the cobbles in Coronation Street as Stella Price, landlady of the Rovers Return. However, she’s also done a plethora of other TV, film and theatrical work including baring ‘nearly’ all in Calendar Girls on the West End, drinking elephant urine with Bear Grylls, time travel with Doctor Who and she’s even been running her own production company working with Jo Brand and Sheridan Smith. Michelle talks to Caroline and Claire about being turned down by half a dozen drama schools as a teen but persevering, working hard and rising to become one of the most successful actresses on the British screen. Listen to her fascinating story and excellent advice on this week’s unmissable Brits in the Wood podcast.
