Coronation Street Blake star Adam Littles unexpected career away from ITV soap

Actor Adam Little is best known for playing Blake Myers in Coronation Street.

ITV viewers have watched the troublemaker teen befriend Max Turner in recent scenes and found himself on the receiving end of the evil Griff Reynolds last year.

However, he returns and causes carnage on the cobbles this week as he stabs Alya Nazir.

Adam also made a name for himself playing Kyle Dobson in the fifth and final series of popular Channel 4 school-based drama Ackley Bridge.

Daily Star has taken a look inside his life away from the soap cameras.

Soap roles

Adam burst onto our screens in a guest role in ITV’s Coronation Street last year as a new character named Blake who meets Max at school.

In a bid to convince Max to trust him, thug Griff violently attacked Blake and his pal Chris as a warning to leave off Max.

The two youngsters were left stunned by the attack and cleared off and since have not been seen on the street.

Adam recently gave a look behind the scenes at life on the soap.

In between takes, he shared clips of himself having some down time in his dressing room as he shared a video of him practising his football skills. It was second time lucky for the 19-year-old when he secured the role.

He told Wigan Today at the time: “It was the second time I have been to Corrie. I originally went for the part of Max Turner ages ago.

"Then I got asked to come back and audition for this role and I was lucky enough to get it this time.”

Adam was stunned to receive a call from his agent saying he’d been offered the part and loved filming in Weatherfield.

“It was absolutely crazy. When I walked on the set, it was surreal,” he said.

New career

Away from the cobbles, the teen star is pursuing a career as a DJ.

Adam regularly shares photos and videos from his DJ sets to his Instagram account after working on his craft alongside his acting work over the past year.

Adam has played a number of small intimate DJ gigs across the Manchester scene over the last few months.

As well as performing live, the star has released a number of DJ mixes to his own Soundcloud page and has received the backing of small record label In The Know Records.

He has a loyal online following of 5,800 followers and counting as his music career goes from strength to strength.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday s on ITV at 8pm
