Chris Harper reprises Nathan Curtis role in Coronation Street

Coronation Street have announced that Bethany Platt’s (Lucy Fallon) evil abuser Nathan Curtis (Chris Harper) is to resurface in the show in the coming weeks.

Curtis will appear as part of the investigation into the disappearance of Lauren Bolton (Cait Fitton), and is first spotted by Bethany at a reconstruction of Lauren’s last known movements.

Chris Harper said:

“I was emotional when I was told about Nathan’s potential return. During the 18 months he was in it before, hundreds of people shared with me how the storyline reflected something they, or someone they loved, had lived through. It remains important to keep them in mind as we continue Bethany’s story.

“Once again, I am grateful for the ongoing support of Barnardo’s, NSPCC, S.H.E.UK, and all the people who trusted me last time. We have another chance to raise an issue that affects so many lives, so often shrouded in shame.”

Bethany’s shocked to come face to face with her abuser again.

Bethany sees red and accuses Nathan of murdering Lauren.

Bethany discovers that Nathan was released from prison some time ago and is working on a building site nearby. Knowing his history, and his appetite for young girls, she soon hits on the idea that Nathan could be behind Lauren’s suspected murder.

As Bethany throws all her eggs into Nathan’s basket she’s forced to confront her abuser once more as she determines to bring Lauren’s attacker to justice.

But has she got the right man? With Roy behind bars awaiting trial for murder and Nathan keen to make out he’s a changed character since his time in prison, is the real predator still at large? Or has Nathan, the master manipulator, returned to his old ways?

Harper continued:

“I do love playing Nathan though. He is funny, deceitful, slippery, manipulative and ruthless. Now he is also under a lot of pressure too. This new storyline is absolutely full of twists.

“It really is good to be back on the hallowed cobbles. So much has happened since we saw Nathan sent to prison, but Coronation Street is a constant. I feel like the cast, crew and the whole team are old friends.”
