Sean Wilson (actor)
|Residence||Saddleworth, Greater Manchester, England|
Sean Wilson (born 4 April 1965 in Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire) is an English actor and cheesemaker, best known for his role as Martin Platt in Coronation Street from 1985 to 2005, and for a brief stint in 2018.
Wilson joined the cast of Coronation Street as Martin Platt, ex-husband of Gail Platt and father of David Platt, in 1985. Since leaving the serial in 2005, he has played minor roles in several UK television dramas, the most recent being in January 2008, when he appeared in Waterloo Road as Darren Briggs Snr, a student's father whose crush on teacher Davina Shackleton gets out of hand.
Wilson is also a chef. He has cooked in several Michelin-starred restaurants, and is also a cheesemaker and purveyor of cheesy comestibles with his own business, Saddleworth Cheese Company. His book The Great Northern Cookbook was published in 2012. The accompanying TV series was shown on Channel 5, starting in January 2013. In 2018, Wilson reprised his role as Martin Platt in Coronation Street for a few episodes.
Sean's interest in cheese developed from an early age, and by the age of 13 he simply couldn't get enough of the stuff. He attributes much of his interest to his uncles, Gordon Zola, and Phil O'Delphia.
Wilson is also a patron of a UK charity, Development of Children and Women Centre Nepal.
