Street Life : The Bryan Mosley Story

 
9780002740210: Street Life : The Bryan Mosley Story

For 23 years Bryan Mosley played the character of Alf Roberts in TV soap Coronation Street and earned himself a reputation as a shining example of a squeaky clean Christian gentleman. In this biography he relates stories of actors and fans and his sometimes controversial beliefs as a Catholic.

Review:

Alf Roberts was one of the most enduring and popular characters that Coronation Street had to offer and his death--on screen and off--left a gaping hole in the hearts and minds of Street fans who had for nearly 40 years watched the grumpy, tightwad corner- shop owner develop into a highly respected member of the community.

The Bryan Mosley Story takes an affectionate look at the life of the man behind the television persona from his humble beginnings on a Northern street--not dissimilar to the fictional street which made him famous--through to his early days as a budding thesp working alongside the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Donald Pleasance and Roger Moore, beyond his big break on a fledgling television series called Coronation Street in 1961 and on to his real life away from the glare of studio lights.

Chris Gidney's biography of this most compassionate and sensitive of men is a well-written, beautifully balanced account of a life that letsStreet fans into the heart of Bryan Mosley, a man loved by millions yet only truly nurtured by his lifelong devotion to his family, his friends and his unshakeable Christian faith.

With behind-the-scenes glimpses of life on The Street, this book is an absolute must for Corrie lovers. But most of all it is a story of a man with a dream fired by ambition and love that will make anyone with half a heart wish that they, too, had been part of this exceptional man's life. --Susan Harrison
