Coronation Street star Paul Fox is unrecognisable 20 years after quitting as Mike Baldwin's son – and breaking Hollywood

EX-CORONATION Street star Paul Fox is unrecognisable 20 years after quitting as Mike Baldwin's son.

The actor – who played Mark Redman in the ITV soap from 1999 to 2000 – has since swapped Corrie's Underworld for Hollywood.


The star has appeared in a series of films including 2020's Mank, Middleton Christmas and a variety of short films and series' like Tuxedo Terrace and Teen Wolf.

Looking very different to his long hair and clean shaven appearance on the programme, the actor now sports a much shorter barnet and a beard which makes him look more distinguished.

But way before Paul achieved movie stardom – he was causing chaos on the famous cobbles.

Marc was the son of factory owner Mike and Maggie Redman – but wayward youngster betrayed his dad when he had an affair with Mike's fiancée Linda Sykes in 2000.

He was the fifth actor to play the character and briefly reprised the role again in 2001 and 2006.

In 1999, after leaving school, Mark turned up in Weatherfield to stay with Mike, where he landed a jobs as a driver at Underworld.

Mike had big plans for his son to take over the factory one day and asked him to be his business partner.

Shortly after he returned to the street, Marc began dating Leanne Battersby but their romance was shortlived.

The troubled lad then started having an affair with Mike's partner Linda – which ended in a dramatic wedding showdown.

Corrie fans will remember when Marc dropped the bombshell news about his affair with Linda on his dad's wedding day.

Mike threw Mark out and had it out with Linda, with them agreeing to make a go of it despite and cut Mark out of their lives. However, Mike never trusted Linda and the couple split up a year later.

Despite causing the residents of Corrie a headache – his off-screen appears far more drama-free sharing snaps of his pet pooch, his partner and luxury holidays.

Paul has also starred in Emmerdale, The Royal, Casualty and an early role was in Children's Ward.
