Kym Marsh hits out at ‘really unjust’ soap snobbery

OHMYGOSSIP — Kym Marsh has called for soap stars to receive “more respect” in the entertainment industry.
The former ‘Coronation Street’ actress has hit back at the “completely unfair” snobbery shown by some TV bosses, after ex-‘Emmerdale’ star Adele Silva recently revealed she had been classed “too soapy” by a casting director.
Kym said: “Actress Adele Silva spoke out last week at the snobbery she has faced as a soap star in auditions.
“She hasn’t starred in ‘Emmerdale’ for 10 years but was still told by a casting director that she was ‘too soapy’. Whatever that means!
“I totally relate to what she’s saying. It’s completely unfair, but there is a stigma for some reason.
It’s frustrating and really unjust.”
Kym – who portrayed Michelle Connor on the cobbles from 2006 to 2019 – insisted being a soap actor is a “relentless job with very long hours”, and she pointed out there is no time to rehearse scenes on a serial drama.
Writing in her OK! magazine column, she added: “Soap actors work really hard. They don’t have the luxury of time and they are constantly learning new lines for scripts.
“They don’t even have time to rehearse before they start a scene.
“It’s a relentless job with very long hours. Plus, soaps deal with some really hard-hitting issues, and I think there have been many incredible performances by soap actors.
“Soap stars have gone on to star in Hollywood. And huge stars have appeared in soaps over the years.
“Look at Sir Ian McKellen in Corrie, for example.
“Soap stars definitely deserve more respect.”
Kym’s comments come after Adele – who played Kelly Windsor on and off from 1993 to 2011 – took to Twitter to reveal she had been a victim of soap “snobbery”.  
She wrote: “Interesting feedback from a selftape I really wanted to get – too soapy?! What even does that mean? Too Panto, too musical theatre ?? I haven’t played the role of Kelly for 10 years and encounter this all the time. I’ve trained at so many different acting (1)
“Schools and still people have a snobbery towards certain soap actors. I’m not bitter some of my fave Actors come from soaps but when will this snobbery end?! Too soapy – maybe I need a good wash?! #Rantover (2) (sic)”
