Gillian Helen Coman (13th September 1955 - 13th July 2010) appeared on Coronation Street in three roles:

Born in Liverpool to a theatrical family, her parents ran a ballroom dancing school and she joined the city's Shelagh Elliott-Clarke drama school aged eight. Upon leaving school she gained repertory experience at a number of theatres including the Liverpool Playhouse, and made her London stage debut in Willy Russell's Stags and Hens at the Young Vic in 1980. Probably best known for her portrayal of Aveline Boswell in the long-running BBC comedy series Bread, she retired from acting in 2000 to focus on bringing up her family, she planned to return to work after her youngest child had completed GCSEs.
