Fans of the HBO were shocked to learn that Noah Jupe who plays Henry Fraser is actually the son of Coronation Street favourite Katy Cavanagh-Jupe. Noah has won acclaim for his portrayal of Henry, the son of Jonathan (Hugh Grant) and Grace Fraser (Nicole Kidman), who finds himself at the centre of a murder trial and subsequent media storm. Noah's mum Katy played Julie Carp on ITV soap Coronation Street from 2008 and 2015, having first being introduced as a girlfriend of Kirk Sutherland (Andrew Whyment). She became a fan favourite after and it looks like she's passed on her acting talents to her son.
