You’ll know her best as Beth Sutherland, one of Coronation Street’s best-loved characters. Sometimes controversial, often loud but never dull, Beth has been delighting viewers since 2011. Behind Beth’s larger-than-life character is Lisa George, a local Grimsby girl and former student of Grimsby College, now known as Grimsby Institute.
Lisa explained: “I started with the local Grimsby and Cleethorpes Amateur Operatic Society. Won a place at the summer school for The National Youth Theatre in London and from there I went on to do my BTEC in Performing Arts at Grimsby College whilst also taking private drama lessons. I work with some wonderful, creative, talented people, and it is such a privilege to be in this position and to bring their work to life.”
