Regular appearances[edit]

Short-term appearances[edit]

Laurence Olivier once offered to take part in a scene on the Street, acting alongside Jean Alexander, whom he admitted was his favourite actress on the programme. However, scheduling conflicts between the Street and the film Marathon Man denied him the chance to act on his favourite TV programme.[4] Michael Crawford and Robbie Williams have both appeared as extras, drinking in the bar of the Rovers.[citation needed]
