Corrie star reveals Seb is the happiest he has been before his and Nina's attack

Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) and Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) will find themselves subject to an unprovoked and vicious attack in scenes airing in early May in Coronation Street.

Seb and Nina have fallen head over heels in love with each other, their relationship has progressed but in the coming weeks, a simple walk along the canal will turn into a nightmare when Corey Brent’s (Maximus Evans) gang approaches them.

Corey and his drunken friends will hurl abuse at the couple, and as they attempt to run away, the gang will follow which will lead to a terrifying attack, leaving Nina and Seb with horrific injuries.

Ahead of these scenes, preparations for Abi (Sally Carman) and Kevin’s (Michael Le Vell) hen and stag dos are beginning and with Seb in the middle of watching his mum look towards a happier life, he’s doing the same with Nina.

Actor Harry Visinoni has played Seb Franklin for five years and as he recently revealed, he can’t think of a time where Seb has felt happier:

‘I have never played scenes where Seb has been on this happy, positive vibe. He is written as being really happy, comfortable and excited for the future. He has met a girl that he sees a future with, and they really click in a mature way as this is his first relationship as an adult. His relationship with his mum is also repairing itself and for the first time Seb is indulging in the fact that he can be a child with her, he enjoys having her as a parent figure.

Abi is marrying Kevin and Seb thinks he is alright too; he is the nicest man she has ever been with. Everything is finally settling down for him.’

It will be a storyline that will turn lives upside down and impact a number of the Weatherfield residents and Harry has explained what he’s hoping this heart-breaking storyline will achieve:

‘I would like to think that it would start a conversation in people’s living rooms. Seb and Nina are attacked because of prejudice and hatred to the way Nina looks – they are two characters that the audience knows personally and sees as kind, innocent and well-intentioned people, and I’m hoping this means that they will relate to the devastation that it causes for all involved.

I would hope that this storyline forms a part of a greater process of educating on the importance of eradicating prejudice and protecting everyone’s right to be who they are and feel safe.’
