On Monday this week (28th November 2011)we were thrilled and honoured to receive a special invite to meet Samia Ghadi, the patron of Tomas’s charity. Samia had just returned from a holiday in Barcelona and made a special effort to drive to the studios to meet Tomas on her day off.
Both Jon and I are long term viewers of Coronation Street and Samia has been part of the cast for the past 12 years. We met on the famous cobbled street and were also greeted by Helen Worth, Sally Dynevor and David Neilson who play Gail Mcintyre, Sally Webster and Roy Cropper. We also briefly met Andrew Lancel who plays bad boy Frank Foster.
All were a pleasure to meet and it was a very special and treasured experience. Having greatly admired such talented actors and actresses in such a well written and produced programme since our childhood days we can honestly say it was a total privilege.
