A British actress best known for her role as Vera Duckworth on Coronation Street (1972-2010), Dawn’s motormouth character was one of the most beloved on British television until she had to retire through illness in 2008. Vera was notorious for nagging her husband Jack (Bill Tarmey), with whom Dawn formed an enduring double act.
