Coronation Street Wiki

Russell Dixon played Dave Barnes on Coronation Street from 1978 to 1979, and Harry Potts from 1992 to 1993 and briefly reprised the role in 1995. In a bizarre piece of casting, having played Harry who was a councillor and enemy of Alf Roberts, between December 2012 and January 2013 he played Henry Wilkins, another councillor who had been a friend of Alf's!

In January 2012 he played the part of Ena Sharples in three episodes of the programme adapted for public performance which were staged at the Lass O'Gowrie pub in Manchester under the umbrella title of 1968 Corrie by Jack Rosenthal.

His other credits include Shelley, The Vice and Northern Lights.
