Seb Franklin “back from the dead” as he returns to Coronation Street after the character’s brutal murder
Harry Visinoni was spotted filming new scenes for Coronation Street after his character Seb Franklin was brutally murdered in May.
The 21-year-old actor was spotted filming on location near Corrie’s set in Trafford Wharf with co-star Mollie Gallager, who plays Nina Lucas on the ITV soap opera.
The couple returned to the same scene where the brutal attack on Seb and his girlfriend Nina unfolded with Millie Gibson playing Kelly Neelan, Harriet Bibby as Summer Spellman, and Maximus Evans playing gang boss Corey Brent.

The cast is believed to have filmed flashback scenes for the soap opera as the truth of what happened on that fateful night is finally revealed.
Seb and Nina were viciously attacked in a poignant storyline based on the real-life story of gothic Sophie Lancaster who died after a similar hate attack in 2007.
After encountering a gang of teenage thugs on a canal walk, the young couple were chased and harassed.
Viewers saw Seb fall to the ground as Nina tried to escape, followed by their relatives being told to go to the hospital.
Seb later died from his injuries and a broken Nina struggled with her identity after the attack, turning to alcohol in an attempt to erase the pain.
Scheming Corey attempted to evade justice but was ultimately charged with murder and GBH.
However, there were shockwaves when he was released on bail.
Mourning for Nina then ruined her chances of being signed by local football star Tommy Orpington’s agent after they met at the same hotel.
In revenge, Corey showed up at Roy Cropper’s cafe to spit more abuse on the fragile teenager, calling her a “little goth maniac.”
Nina’s uncle Roy came to the rescue and PC Craig Tinker arrived to arrest her on suspicion of violating his bail conditions.
Kelly also faces a long period in prison after being implicated in Seb’s murder.
Harry, who has played handyman and builder Seb since 2016 in his first acting role, previously recounted how he was about to cry as his character died in hospital.
When asked how he felt about the heartbreaking scenes, he replied, “Quite touching really. I was gushing, which is a rare thing for me.”
The ITV soap opera worked with the Sophie Lancaster Foundation on the heart-wrenching story in memory of Sophie who was murdered in a park because of her appearance.
She and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were attacked for being members of the Gothic subculture.

By working with Corrie, the Foundation, started by Sophie’s mother Sylvia, to address prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures, hopes to encourage more people to report hate crimes.
Asked about the importance of working with the Sophie Lancaster Foundation on history, Harry said: “People are quick to make drastic assumptions about how others express themselves outwardly through clothing or whatever. , and this ignorance has consequences.
“Sophie was killed because of blind hatred and prejudice, it comes from a lack of understanding or a lack of will to understand.
“It was a great responsibility to say that and to share the idea as sincerely as possible.
“It was an honor to trust him. I think it will have the right impact.
“It was moving to hear the story of Sylvia Lancaster.”
