Corrie scraps social distancing for Seb and Nina flashbacks

·2-min read

Coronation Street's Maximus Evans has revealed that the upcoming flashback scenes weren't socially distanced on set.

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began, most of the soap's sequences have been shot in adherence to strict safety guidelines, but a few intimate ones (Fiz Stape and Tyrone Dobbs kissing) are proving the exception in recent times.

Addressing the Seb Franklin and Nina Lucas assault flashbacks, the Corey Brent actor shared: "As character development it was very interesting to go back to the place which was such a catalyst of an episode and set the dominoes falling. 

"It was very intense and it was great to have Harry [Visinoni, who plays Seb] back again and hear how well things are going for him. We all had a really good time, it was a long night but I really enjoyed the night shoots. 

"I think they're important for young actors to do as they give you a real insight into how the industry works."

The cast created close cohorts in order to film these scenes, but how did he find working in this regimented manner? 

"I was in a bubble with Millie [Gibson, who plays Kelly Neelan], it felt so surreal to be back being able to be close again. 

"With characters like Corey and Kelly it was great to be able to have that intimacy, to emphasise Corey's real physical violence and the threat he poses over her."

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
