Coronation Street's Tina O'Brien reveals daughter Scarlett, 11, has auditioned for a Disney film in LA
CORONATION Street star Tina O'Brien has revealed her daughter Scarlett has auditioned for a Disney film in Los Angeles.
The actress – who plays Sarah Platt on the ITV soap – shares the 11-year-old with former co-star Ryan Thomas.
It appears little Scarlett could soon be stepping in the footsteps of her famous parents as she takes on LA.
Tina 37, told the Mirror: "I would be happy for her to do whatever she wants to do. She’s just auditioned for a new Disney thing that would be filming in LA.
"She had a lot of script to learn and I said, ‘This is the reality, Scarlett. If you want to do this, you have to put the time and effort in.’
"Her American accent was ridiculous, though. So good! I think she’s got the bug. But she also loves the idea of being an entrepreneur – so I’m not quite sure what she wants to do."
The Corrie star added: "She looks at her Uncle Scott (Thomas, from Love Island ) and says, ‘He has his own business… I fancy doing that!’"
Tina and Ryan split after their daughter was born, but still co-parent the youngster together.
The pair often take to Instagram to document their daughter's incredible talents, with Ryan recently sharing a clip of Scarlett singing a track from A Star Is Born.
Tina continued: "She’s a really good mimic. And the most incredible singer. She’s brilliant and she’s getting better and better. I’m really excited for her when she’s older.
"I run drama classes for children, so she’s been coming to them since she was four. When she was younger she’d say, ‘I don’t want to go,’ but I’d say, ‘Tough, I’m going, so you’re coming with me!’
"Now, she’s like, ‘Are you going today? Please can I come!’ She loves it and even says, ‘It’s my favourite place to be because I feel like I get to be who I am.’"
The ITV star previously revealed Scarlett had signed up to Drama MOB, which was set up by Tina and her best friend Esther Morgan in 2013.
Tina told Manchester Evening News: "From the age of three she started singing so she started singing before she showed any interest in acting.
"She used to say 'I don't really fancy the acting but I like the singing' and she used to sing Castle On A Cloud from Les Mis.
"A teacher sent me a video of her singing it and I thought 'oh my gosh she's actually really quite good.'"
Tina married in 2018 after meeting Adam Crofts and the couple had a son called Beau in 2014.
She joined Coronation Street as Sarah Platt in 1999.
