Ex-Coronation Street star’s Keighley links
2:50pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
One of the nation’s best-known former television soap characters thinks she might have a family link to Keighley.
Liz Dawn – famous for starring in Coronation Street for many years as Vera Duckworth – has revealed in a national paper that she believes her original surname of Butterfield could indicate a link to the Butterfield family of Cliffe Castle fame.
The retired Leeds-born actress added she knows very little about her family origins but would love to find out more. She says her last remaining television ambition is to appear on the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? programme.
Liz portrayed Vera Duckworth for 34 years, making her final, one-off Coronation Street appearance in November 2010.
