Time viewers spot very familiar face from Coronation Street in violent prison attack scene


TIME viewers have spotted a very familiar face in the first episode of the harrowing prison drama.

The dark Jimmy McGovern three-parter stars actors Game of Thrones Sean Bean and Line of Duty star Stephen Graham.

Dean Fagan was immediately spotted by fans

Set in a prison Sean plays new inmate Mark Codben, a gentle teacher who has been sent down for four years.

Stephen plays a prison guard who tries to help him, despite his own problems.

Happy Valley star Siobhan Finneran plays nun Mary-Louise to round out the all-star cast.

But despite the huge names in the violent drama and all that went on in the episode, fans were distracted by the appearance of another man – Luke from Coronation Street.

He featured in the violent scenes of tonight’s first episode of Time
Luke was killed by Phelan in 2018

Better known as actor Dean Fagan, he appeared in two scenes but didn’t say much.

Instead he boiled sugar in a kettle and set up another prisoner for a scarring and violent attack.

He played kind Luke Britton on the cobbles between 2014 and 2018 when his character was brutally murdered by serial killer Pat Phelan.

And he was obviously memorable as Time viewers spotted him immediately.

One wrote: “That’s Luke off Corrie #Time”

A second said: “It’s Luke from Corrie! #Time”

Another added: “Was that Luke off #Corrie? Someone best be telling poor Alya. She’s still grieving. #Corrie #Time”
