But the actress has always said from the start that she was not closing the door on Coronation Street and will always want to go back to where she calls home – and she has now reiterated that she will return ‘1000’ times over.
That works for us!
Lucy told The Sun: ‘I’m not under any illusion that I’m going to be working forever and all these parts are going to come to me, but I spoke to a few people and they gave me the confidence to try.
‘I’m very conscious of the fact that I don’t want it to sound like I see going back to Corrie as a back-up – that’s absolutely not how it is. I absolutely love that show and I would do it a thousand times over and I obviously would 100% go back there in future if they will have me.
‘It’s just about me spreading my wings in a way and trying to live with no regrets. Corrie is the only part I’ve ever auditioned for and I was very lucky to get it, but I know that’s not always going to happen.’
Of course in a lockdown environment, the audition process is a very different ball game, with theatres shut down and television only just starting to cautiously return to production under social distancing regulations.
But Lucy is optimistic that she can keep trying for roles and get a feel for what’s out there beyond Corrie.
She smiled: ‘At the moment auditions are all being done remotely so I’ve done a few self-tapes, including one today, and I’ve read for a new comedy which is still in the pipeline, so I’m hoping something will work out!’
Given how witty Lucy is in real life, we have no doubt that she will be right at home in a comedy. Sign her up we say!
