Coronation Street’s Liam Connor falls victim to bulling in ‘tense’ scenes

Stephanie Davis discusses Coronation Street theories

Coronation Street’s Liam Connor (played by Charlie Wrenshall) is set to be involved in a massive storyline that will see him being bullied by newcomer Mason (Luca Toolan).

Luca Toolan is set to join the cobbles as Weatherfield High’s resident bad boy, Year 11 student Mason, who quickly becomes a bad influence on his fellow students.

On Monday night, viewers got a first glimpse of Mason who was seen making fun of Ruby Dobbs (Isabella Flanagan) before her sister Ruby Dobbs (Billie Naylor) stepped in to defend her.

However, that is just the start of Mason’s antics as things are set to turn dark when he tries to recruit more into his group.

Mason sets his sights on Dylan Wilson (Liam McCheyne) and takes him under his wing before they decide to target Liam as their victim.

Will things spiral out of control too quickly before Dylan realises how bad Mason is?

It soon becomes clear that Mason’s bullying begins to impact the wider residents of the Cobbles, as Sean Tully (Anthony Cotton), Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon), and Gary Windass (Mickey North) all point their fingers at one another.

Speaking about getting the role and his family’s excitement, Luca said: “First thing I did was ring my dad. I didn’t actually tell anybody about anything, not even the first self-tape, because I’m very superstitious.

“I also didn’t tell him about the screen test so he was surprised. Obviously, he knows I’m into acting, but he was like, ‘What? What do you mean?’.

“Because usually I tell him about all my auditions, and this was the first one I didn’t. He was just in complete shock.

“He knows how much of a big deal it is and understands how lucky I am to be in the position that I am.

“I also rang my grandma as she is a massive Corrie fan, she didn’t believe it and thought I was pulling her leg!”

Luca also warned that no one will like his character and added: “They told me it was going to get dark.

“It’s exciting to be here but there’s pressure and responsibility to do this justice. He’s a very angry and disturbed soul. People are like that for reasons.

“Hopefully in the future, we might be able to explore a little bit more of why he’s become the way he’s become.”

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
