Irish actress Nora Jane Noone is set to join the cast of Coronation Street as Steve McDonald's new love interest.
The 20-year-old Galway actress made her screen debut in the film The Magdalene Sisters when she was just 17 years old and has now signed up for nine episodes of Corrie. Noone may well stay on longer if writers decide to keep her character in the Street.
Steve has been abandoned by wife Karen and sparks fly when he meets Dublin single mother Louise Hazel. However, she will face stiff competition from scheming Tracy Barlow, the mother of Steve's daughter Amy, who is determined to win him over.
Noone, who relocated to London after completing a science degree in Galway, has also starred in Ella Enchanted and News for the Church.
