Kiefer Sutherland is a huge fan of 'Coronation Street'
Kiefer Sutherland is a huge fan of 'Coronation Street'.
The '24' actor used to be a huge fan of the ITV1 soap when he was growing up in Canada and watched the special three-hour omnibus without fail every Sunday.
He said: "'Coronation Street' is my childhood favourite programme. It ran on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for three hours every Sunday when I was growing up. I think it still does. I liked the lady who ran the bar."
Kiefer also loves 'Shameless' - which documents the lives of the dysfunctional Gallagher family in a rough Manchester estate - and admits he was hoping to bag a cameo role in 'The Wire'.
He added in an interview with Radio Times magazine: "'Shameless' is my can't miss programme. I find it reassuring that you can tell a story about a family as dysfunctional as that one and watch them function on some level.
"I was a huge fan of 'The Wire'. It really was extraordinary television so I was disappointed when it finished. I would have loved a cameo in that show."
