Happy Birthday, Bruno Langley

BRUNO LANGLEY (our Todd Grimshaw)

Born: March 21, 1983

Born to Australian parents, Bruno grew up in Buxton, Derbyshire and attended Lady Manners School in Bakewell and Buxton Youth Theatre.

Bruno is not only a talented actor; he’s an accomplished pianist and singer.

In 2000, Bruno had a brief, one-off role in Corrie as Candice's boyfriend Darren Michaels. He eventually landed the part of Todd Grimshaw in 2001.

Todd and Nick

Bruno was the first openly gay character on Coronation Street. He kissed our Nick Tilsley (Adam Rickitt) once, and had an affair with nurse Karl Foster (Chris Finch).

Bruno left Corrie in 2004 but scriptwriters did not kill Todd off, leaving the door open for a possible return.

Former Coronation Street producer Tony Wood said: "Bruno is a talented young actor with a great future ahead of him."

After leaving Corrie, Bruno went on to play Adam Mitchell in Dr. Who and had a role in The League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse.

Everytime I see that bus photo I start singing Bronski Beat...'Run away, run away, get away.'
