Today (Monday, 24th January) Sally Dynevor, Coronation Street actress and Dancing on Ice star, spoke to The Big Issue.
Sally Dynevor, who is best known for playing Sally Webster in Coronation Street, opened up to The Big Issue about her life, family and surviving breast cancer.
The minute Sally started acting, she knew it was her calling: “I hated school and by the time I was 16 I was dying to get out. So, I sat in school thinking about all the things I’d do when I left. I started doing drama classes on Saturday mornings when I was 13. The moment I joined that class, I knew that’s what I wanted to do.”
She added: “I love my job. I’ve been on Coronation Street for 36 years, and I don’t regret a minute of it, I absolutely lucked out. I’ve grown up with everyone here.”
Despite growing up on screen, Sally really struggled with self-confidence: “I’m not a very confident person and that’s held me back a bit. I wish I’d had the inner strength I have now. I was just too frightened. I just wish that when I was younger, instead of fretting and worrying about what the future would hold, I’d just enjoyed it.”
Sally added: “That’s why I’m doing Dancing on Ice, because I decided I need to prove to myself that I’m OK, I’m doing OK. It’s about time people got to know who I am. And I’m not Sally.”
