On Coronation Street, “The Bill’s” Kerry Peers will take over the role of Callum Logan’s (Sean Ward) mother, Marion Logan. When the character first appeared on the show, she was originally portrayed by Susan Cookson. Marion is set to return to the cobbles next week and when she does, viewers will see a new face play the part.
The show has not revealed why they decided to recast the character. Although Cookson is no longer with The Bold and the Beautiful, she’s currently landed a guest-star gig on Emmerdale as Wendy Posner.
Looking Back At Callum’s Death
Callum’s storyline will be revisited upon Marion’s return. Viewers may recall that he was killed by Kylie Platt (Paula Lane) during a live episode that the show aired last year. Kylie, Sarah (Tina O’Brien) and David (Jack P Shepherd) all worked together to buy Callum’s dead body. Last year, Callum’s death was revisited when Sarah confessed her involvement in Callum’s demise back in 2015.
Peers will make her debut when Marion returns to Weatherfield to ask Kylie and Callum’s son Max to leave the Platts and be with her.
