Tina O’Brien has shared her pride over her “incredible” daughter Scarlett and revealed she has auditioned for a role with Disney.

The 36 year old Coronation Street actress, who shares her 11 year old daughter with ex Ryan Thomas, gushed over her talented daughter and unveiled the exciting career news.

Actress Tina, who also has five year old son Beau with husband Adam Crofts, shared her pride over her gifted first child as she said: “She's a really good mimic. And the most incredible singer.

“She's brilliant and she's getting better and better. I'm really excited for when she's older.”

Tina, who’s 36 year old ex Ryan recently shared a video of their daughter singing, explained Scarlett was initially reluctant to get involved in performing arts.

She said: “I run drama classes for children, so she's been coming to them since she was four. When she was younger she'd say: ‘I don't want to go.’ But I'd say: ‘Tough, I'm going so you're coming with me!’ Now she's like: ‘Are you going today? Please can I come?’

“She loves it and even says: ‘It's my favourite place to be because I feel like I get to be who I am’.”

Coronation Street actress Tina, who quit social media earlier this year, also discussed her daughter’s future career plans and unveiled her exciting audition with mass media company Disney.


Tina said: “I would be happy for her to do whatever she wants. She's just auditioned for a Disney thing that would be filming in LA.

“She had a lot of script to learn and I said: ‘This is the reality, Scarlett. If you want to do this, you have to put the time and effort in.’

“Her American accent was ridiculous though, it was so good!”

The mum, who plays Sarah Platt in the ITV soap, said she is more than willing to support her daughter in fulfilling her acting dream by acting as “the lackey and chaperone” for her little girl, if her acting career does take off.

But, Tina said Scarlett also sees herself becoming an entrepreneur someday and says she could turn her hand to business instead of acting.

Tina previously gushed about her daughter’s incredible singing abilities as she told Manchester Evening News: “From the age of three she started singing so she started singing before she showed any interest in acting.

“She used to say ‘I don’t really fancy the acting but I like the singing’ and she used to sing Castle On A Cloud from Les Mis.

“A teacher sent me a video of her singing it and I thought ‘oh my gosh she’s actually really quite good.'”
