Coronation Street star left homeless after sharing anti-vax views
'Was it all worth it? Yes!'
Former Coronation Street star Sean Ward says he's been made homeless because of his anti-vax views.
He played villain Callum Logan on the Manchester-based soap in 2014 and 2015 but in recent years has spoken out against the vaccine.
He was arrested last year at an anti-vaccine protest and has said in a new post on social media that his views have meant he's been unable to secure more acting work.
"Firstly the work dried up. No one would hire me whether in front of or behind the camera, all my usual ways of making money just stopped, eventually I couldn’t afford the rent," he wrote on Instagram.
He added: "So I gave up my 4 bed house and move onto my friend’s couch. I had to put all my belongings into storage. After a while I couldn’t afford to pay the storage bill and after about 4 weeks of missing the payments – equating to about £500 – Safe Store UK sold all belongings.
"My sofa, my bed frame, my office equipment, desk, chair, wardrobes, mirrors, all my coats and clothes and my projector.
"Everything to fill a family house. My whole life was in that storage unit. I lost it all. I was devastated but I couldn’t ask anyone for help because it was my choice to speak out.
"Luckily I got my mattress out in time and I’ve been sleeping on that in a friend’s spare room for over a year now. He has given me a safe space when I really needed it.
"I haven’t paid any rent to this man and it makes me extremely tearful when I think how amazing that really is."
However the negative experiences haven't caused Ward to change his views. “Was it all worth it? Yes! If I’ve saved one life then yes," he added.
According to the Sun, Ward was reportedly earning £100,000 a year during his time on Coronation Street.
The 33-year-old was also on British military drama series Our Girl alongside Michele Keegan in 2013.
