Linus Roache To Play Homophobe on “Corrie”

Back in May, I reported here that Linus Roache (Law & Order) will be guest starring on the UK soap “Coronation Street" along with his brother James. Linus’ father Bill Roache is also a star on the show. Now, On Top Magazine reports that Linus will be playing a homophobe in this role, saying

“In the story to be broadcast in September, Ken Barlow discovers he has a long-lost son, Lawrence (played by Linus Roache), and a grandson, James (played by James Roache).

Lawrence, however, hates his son because he's gay.

“Lawrence is a complete bigot and the language he uses will leave some viewers furious,” the paper quoted an unnamed insider.

“The scenes will pull no punches in expressing some people's hatred toward gay people and what they stand for.”
