    Coronation Street actor Andrew Hall has died at the age of 65.

    The actor, also known for the BBC series Butterflies, died on Monday after a short illness.

    A tweet from his management group InterTalent Rights said: "It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our client and friend Andrew Hall."

    Hall was best known for his role as Russell Parkinson in Butterflies between 1978 and 1983.

    Hall later went on to play Marc Selby, the cross-dressing love interest for Audrey Roberts in Coronation Street in 2011 and also appeared in many other television programmes including Hollyoaks, Holby City and Two Point Four Children.

    I worked with Andrew a couple of years ago. He was such a nice man. He didn't have the easiest time of it on the show and then got ill and had to leave the production early, but through it all, he was a real gent. Grace under pressure, I think they call it.

    Rewatching Butterflies last year, I found a new appreciation for his acting. He was great in it.

    This is one of my favourite episodes, in no small part because of Andrew's understated performance. His final scene, where it's clear there's more going on than he's saying, is quite moving (just after the 26 minute mark)...
