Charles DaleMostly famous as Dennis Stringer from UK ITV soap 'Coronation Street'. He's also been the chef in 'The Lakes' and has also appeared in a raft of other TV programmes including 'Paradise Heights' for the BBC.
Connection: Born in Tenby, Pembrokeshire.
Charles understudied Robert Lindsay in 'Cyrano de Bergerac' at the Haymarket theatre in the nineties. I luckily saw him and his performance brought me to tears at the end. The best stage actor I have ever seen.
He's also done four series of the drama 'Belonging' for BBC Wales.
I remember Charles when he had a cute pageboy hair cut, in his dad's music shop. He has come a very long way since those days. A very fine actor and Tenby is proud of him.
