William Roache - Soul on the Street - An Autobiography
William Roache has played Ken Barlow on The UK's best-loved soap opera, Coronation Street, for
fifty years, making him the world's longest serving TV soap star.
As a younger actor William auditioned for a television drama which was likely to end up running for just a few
weeks. Now, half a century later, he is the sole original cast member and the programmes success has established
him as a household name.
During that period, William's character Ken Barlow has been married four times, twice to Deirdre, and had a
number of tumultuous affairs.
Soul on the Street is a gripping autobiography that will appeal to fans of 'The Street' and is an interesting
insight into the spiritual influences which have shaped this much-loved actor. It will make inspiring reading for
anybody interested in personal development and self improvement.
