Busy Walters misses out on dream role

The Harry Potter star was approached by bosses of the popular soap opera about appearing in the show after she scooped a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award in June (10).

Walters’ busy schedule prevented her from accepting the role – and she’s still sad about it

She says, “What happened was it was at the BAFTAs and I got one this year and afterwards you go out and you meet a bank of journalists and, because it was the 50th anniversary of Corrie and I love it, they mentioned it and said ‘Would you like to be in it?’ And I said, ‘Oh I’d love to be!’ The next day they (TV bosses) were on the phone saying did I want a part… I couldn’t then, so that was it, so I did turn it down as I couldn’t at the time.”

But Walters hopes she’ll land a role in the longrunning series eventually, adding, “One of these days!”
