Coronation Street actress Paula Lane is to leave the show after six years playing troubled Kylie Platt.
Paula will be at the centre of a huge top secret storyline which will be on screen this summer. She will finish filming as she goes on maternity leave in June.
She notified ITV of her intention to leave the show a few weeks ago, the producers and writing team discussed her exit at the story conference and came up with an exciting storyline for her departure which will coincide with the timing of her maternity leave.
Writers and storyliners are now working on the details of her dramatic exit which will focus on the climax of the storyline which saw Callum Logan murdered and buried under Gail’s granny flat in the live episode last September.
Producer Stuart Blackburn said:
“Paula is one of the most talented and dedicated actors I know and in Kylie she has created an unforgettable Corrie character.
"I for one will miss both the character and the actor and on behalf of all at Coronation Street wish Paula all the love and luck in the world and I'm certain that Paula's future will be full of continued success.”
Paula Lane said:
“This has not been an easy decision for me to make. I have enjoyed every moment of my time on Coronation Street and learnt so much in the process.
"I have an amazing on-screen family who have become friends for life so this decision was not taken lightly. But sometimes you just have to follow your heart and I am excited about what the future has to offer both personally and professionally.”
Will Leanne report Simon to the police!? We spoke to Jane Danson about Leanne's very difficult decision.
Things have seemed on a more even keel with Simon since he’s been having counselling?
Yes, Leanne feels as though things are a lot better - he is still moody and grumpy but much more the normal moody grumpy behaviour of a teenager - that she can cope with and the violence has stopped. She really feels as though it is the light at the end of the tunnel.
Do warning bells start to ring when Simon says he doesn’t want her at the footy match?
She thinks he is just being grumpy because she has had a go at him about his homework. So she still plans to go along.
Was she surprised to see Tom and find out who he is?
She is really surprised when he comes over to talk to her - neither of them had mentioned having a child so it is a surprise to both of the to see each other there, But it is a nice surprise and they start chatting - something that Simon immediately spots.
Did she notice Simon getting angry when he sees her talking to Tom?
Yes she kicks herself as she realises he has seen her doing what he sees as flirting with Tom - he has been teased by one of the other boys about it so he feels really stupid.
What’s Leanne’s reaction when he brutally tackles and badly injures another player?
Kyle the young lad who is injured is the one who was teasing Simon and he says that Simon did it on purpose. It isn’t something that she wants to believe but there is part of her that thinks it is entirely possible knowing what he has done to her and Amy in the past.
What’s her reaction when Zeedan tells her that Simon admitted to her that he did do it on purpose because he got angry?
She is devastated but she realises that things have gone too far and if he is starting to lash out at other people she needs to do something about it. It is one thing her having to deal with his anger issues but she knows that if things are going to start happening at school then there is a whole world of problems ahead for him unless she nips it in the bud now.
