Series 2 - Julie Hesmondhalgh

SNS Online returns for a brand new regular run of free downloadable shows, featuring one to one interviews with people from the arts. These shows will be released on a regular basis and feature actors, musicians/DJs, stand up comedians, writers and more!


Our first show is a tie in with Russell T Davies’ fantastic new Channel 4 gay comedy/drama, Cucumber, featuring one of the show’s stars, multi-award winning actress, Julie Hesmondhalgh. Probably best known for her portrayal of transexual, Hayley Cropper, in Coronation Street for over 16 years, we caught up with Julie at the Royal Court Theatre just before Christmas to talk Corrie, Cucumber, innovative theatre and much more. All that and Julie’s music choice too, which is an unexpected joy..! That’s SNS Online, in the company of Julie Hesmondhalgh, available now via Soundcloud or free download for your future pleasure.


A donation has been made to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Do listen out for Julie’s involvement in this interview.
