Piper Perabo loves Coronation Street and her character being called Annie Walker!
Piper, who stars in Covert Affairs as a character called Annie Walker, told the PA, “I said [to the producers], ‘What happens when we go to the UK?’ Are we gonna change the name? What about Coronation Street?’
“They said, ‘We can’t change the name now. We’ve shot two seasons.’
“I said, ‘Everyone’s going to be so confused that Annie Walker is an international spy’.
“I’m sure it’s going to be the source of lots of jollyness.”
The Golden Globe nominated actress also revealed that she likes watching Coronation Street when she’s in the UK.
She said, “I’ve seen little bits of it. I’ve done a movie here in London and I’ve done press here…
“So when you get into the hotel at night you slip on the TV, so I’ve seen bits of it but not enough to catch the storylines.”
And apparently, she also likes watching Spooks.
She added, “I watched that show Spooks that you guys have and Covert Affairs is a bit more fantasy/escapism than Spooks.
“This is as serious as any crime drama. Covert Affairs has a little of the ‘James Bond exotic locations, fashion thrill ride’”
Covert Affairs premieres in the UK on Really on Monday, November 7th at 9pm.
