From Queer As Folk to guest spots in Absolutely Fabulous, Antony Cotton had already garnered an impressive acting CV. But his most famous role is as Sean Tully in Coronation Street, undoubtedly one of the UK’s most high profile LGBT characters.

Attitude Award Winner




In a taxi conversation from the Thames Barrier to Waterloo station, Antony Cotton takes a brief pause to consider how he differs from the character he plays in Coronation Street, Sean Tully. Since 2003, Sean and, by extension, Antony have become gently omnipresent in the national living room. “I’m not necessarily intense storyline-wise,” he says, “but I am intense schedule-wise. I live at number 11, I’m in the factory and I’m in the pub, so I’m across the exterior and the interiors. Every episode has six scenes in the Rovers. So, I’m there a lot.” If anybody would care to tot up the sums, Sean/Antony is perhaps the most visible gay man, per view per capita in Britain of the last decade.
