Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I have to say I'm 48 years old and have I had a lead part in a drama yet on British television? No. With 25 years of being an actor, that's a long time. So I'm going to America.

Trivia:

Her Coronation Street (1960) character Sunita Alahan became the 19th woman on the soap opera to give birth. Sunita had twins Aadi (played by Zennon Ditchett) and Asha (played by Tanisha Gorey), born on 13 January 2006. See more »
