Spoilers for Coronation Street are underneath.
Todd Boyce, a Coronation Street actor, has said his plot as Stephen Reid almost continued for another six months.
Boyce rejoined the ITV soap opera last year after a 15-year sabbatical, and in the most recent storyline, the businessman wiped out his rivals, revealing a violent tendency in his character.
The final scenes Boyce will portray Stephen in the soap opera will run the next week, but the actor said on This Morning that producer Iain MacLeod almost made the killer stay in Weatherfield longer.

Boyce appeared with co-star Tina O’Brien and said to Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, “Iain flirted with the notion of [giving Stephen] another six months.” “However, I believe the audience was going insane – they demanded justice!”
Boyce’s run on Corrie is nearing to an end, but the actor won’t have to wait long for his next project since the star told and other media that his calendar is booked up for the foreseeable future.
He said, “I start panto rehearsals the final week of November; it runs the last three weeks of December.” The Laurence Olivier role in Sleuth has just been given to me by Bill Kenwright, who was a renowned Corrie actor before becoming a successful theatrical producer.
9 significant Coronation Street spoilers for the upcoming week
While Stephen will soon leave the cobblestone streets, it won’t be long until another character reveals their malicious tendencies. According to producer MacLeod, every “good tale” needs an opponent.
People require impediments to their enjoyment, he claimed. Without one, it might be difficult to find high drama moments in a program, and individuals may wind up being affected by outside forces. If you want them to, a villain may enter the scene and create a plot out of thin air.
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8 p.m., ITV1 and ITVX both broadcast Coronation Street.
