As you know, William Roache is touring Canada, giving a talk on his experiences as Ken Barlow in Coronation. Today in his travels, he took some time to meet Prime Minister Stephen Harper. It turns out Harper wrote a letter to the cast during the show’s 50th anniversary and counts himself among the Canadian fan base (so perhaps in the next federal budget he won’t be too hard on the CBC if he wants to keep watching the show).
But now I’m at that awkward moment when I realize that I have something in common with Stephen Harper. I may have to rethink my life.
