Corrie and Butterflies star Andrew Hall dies after short illness

22nd May 19 | Entertainment News

The actor passed away on Monday.

Former Coronation Street actor Andrew Hall has died at the age of 65.

The actor, also known for BBC series Butterflies, died on Monday after a short illness.

A tweet from his management group InterTalent Rights said: “It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our client and friend Andrew Hall who sadly passed away on Monday after a short illness.

“Andrew was loved by audiences for his many roles, most notably Butterflies, Coronation Street and, more recently, Syfy’s Blood Drive.”

Hall was best known for his role as Russell Parkinson in the BBC show Butterflies between 1978 and 1983, where played the son of Wendy Craig and Geoffrey Palmer and the brother of Nicholas Lyndhurst.

He later played Marc Selby in Coronation Street.

He appeared in many other television programmes including Holloyaks, Holby City and Two Point Four Children, and his films included The Truth About Love and Gabriel Ernest.

Hall also worked behind the camera, directing productions of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? and Haunting Julia.

His son Josh Hall said: “Andrew began his acting career playing the character of Russell in the BBC series Butterflies.

He then worked extensively as an actor on both stage and screen including a period at the RSC and a run as Bill in the West End production of Mamma Mia!

“Later he worked as a director and producer, enjoying successes with productions including Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? at the Trafalgar, and Kindertransport, which toured the UK.

“Most recently he appeared as The Gentleman in the SyFy series Blood Drive.

“He is survived by his wife Abigail, his mother Mabel, his children Kate and Josh, and his grandchildren Jasper and Maggie.”

His agent Alex Segal said: “Andrew’s most recent TV job was in a Syfy series called Blood Drive.

His character name was The Gentleman. That couldn’t be more apt. It’s the perfect way to describe Andrew. The nicest of men and an extremely talented actor.

“We are so sad to hear of his passing.

“Andrew was loved at InterTalent Rights Group where he had been a client in our Actors Division since 2014. He was a client and a friend.

“Our thoughts are with his wife Abi and all of Andrew’s family and friends.”
