"Coronation Street" star Andrew Hall, who also appeared in "Butterflies" and "Blood Drive," has passed away at the age of 65.


The news was confirmed by his management team, who announced Hall's passing on social media. InterTalent wrote in the caption:

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our client & friend Andrew Hall who sadly passed away on Monday after a short illness. Andrew was loved by audiences for his many roles, most notably Butterflies, Coronation Street and, more recently, Syfy’s Blood Drive."


Shortly after the news broke, his son, Josh Hall, said on Twitter: "Safe travels to my dad." Hall is survived by his wife, mother, two children, and two grandchildren.

Just one day before his death, Josh joked on Twitter that his "dad started referring to his medical oxygen generator as 'the big vape machine.'"

Apart from his leading roles in "Butterflies" and "Coronation Street," Hall also appeared in "EastEnders," "Brookside," "Hollyoaks," and "Casualty."


Hall began his career in the late seventies when he landed a small role in the TV series "Brensham People" and in one episode of "The Enigma Files."

He got his big break when he was cast as Russell Parkinson in "Butterflies," followed by his roles in "Dead Entry," and "Children's Ward."

Hall's biggest role, however, was that of Marc Selby in "Coronation Street" in 2011. He appeared in 41 episodes as Audrey's lover.

He later worked as a director and producer and received critical acclaim for his production of Edward Albee’s "Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?" at the Trafalgar and Kindertransport.
