Coronation Street star Samia Longchambon’s character Maria Connor has been a staple part of the soap since she first graced the cobbles on 19 May 2000.
The character of Maria has been the centre of some major storylines and, as a result, she’s become a household name for Corrie fans.
Samia Longchambon, née Ghadie, 38, was born in Eccles, Greater Manchester, and first appeared in the hit ITV soap as a kennel worker before getting engaged to Tyrone Dobbs as he proposed on top of the Blackpool Tower in iconic scenes.

But how much is the star worth as a result of her successful and lengthy television career? Let’s take a look…
What is Samia Longchambon’s net worth?
Samia’s net worth is reported to be anything between £795k and £3.8 million.
Despite having appeared in Corrie for quite some time, the soap wasn’t Samia’s first job and her first gig was in fact working on Cracker alongside Robbie Coltrane.
Samia was just 11 years old at the time and has since admitted that she was too young to realise what an amazing actor Robbie was, and therefore didn’t get star struck at all.
Next, it was onto her long career on the cobbles, but Maria Connor wasn’t the part Samia initially auditioned for.
She actually auditioned for the part of Des Barnes’ girlfriend but the role landed with Emily Aston and Samia became Maria Connor as a result – and we’re so glad she did!
