STARS ALIGN Coronation Street star makes major decision after landing dream role on soap

CORONATION Street actor Emrhys Cooper has made a major life change after securing a role on the ITV soap.

The star has been playing Rowan Cunliffe on Coronation Street over the past few months where his character has groomed Leanne Battersby into his bizarre cult called The Institute.

His character has begun to develop a major position within the soap with Emrhys admitting the role was a dream come true.

Now the star has confirmed he has relocated once again back to the UK having been based in Los Angeles for some time.

Emrhys headed out to Hollywood in a bid to further his career before landing his part on the ITV soap.

As he continues in his role as Rowan, the hunky actor has now settled back into UK life with a move to the leafy Cotswolds.

Seemingly confirming his relocation was permanent, Emrhys revealed that his beloved cat and dog had also made the huge move from LA to the Cotswolds.

He shared two snaps looking cosy with his furry friends as he decalred: “My babies made it all the way from LA to the Cotswolds.”

However, in a positive update, Emrhys confirmed that Monty too would be arriving in the UK in “two weeks” time.

The soap star laid casually on a bed for another snap where he cuddled up to his pets as he relaxed after the major moving trip.

Emrhys’ storyline on Coronation Street has divided fans as a result of its cryptic and unique nature.

Rowan has begun to show off his villainous streak amid the cult plot with Emrhys recently revealing that he actually had closer ties to the storyline than people may realise after having personal experience with a cult.

He recently admitted: “My parents did wind up in a cult. It was actually kind of a wellness, fitness, more of a spiritual cult.

“And as they got further and further in, and gave more money, it became more sinister.”

The star opened up about his childhood as he revealed his parents chose an alternative ‘holistic’ lifestyle.

Coronation Street’s shock exits 2024

He told The Mirror: “Growing up in Totnes, a very new-age town and a breeding hub of gurus and holistic doctors, my parents encountered quite a few Rowan-types over the years.

“I didn’t really understand it growing up. But as I got older and witnessed firsthand some of the dangers of these types of characters.”
