She once received an OBE in 2017, initially had depression symptoms when she was 17 years old and spent the next three decades trying to find a way to cope.
Sarah was initially prescribed tranquilizers, which proved to be more of a burden than a solution for her. Despite this, her big break came in 1991, when she was cast as Raquel Watts on ITV’s Coronation Street.
While she shone on television as the happy barmaid, life behind the scenes was just as horrible as it had been.
Sarah had a life-changing nervous breakdown two years into the job, but she didn’t tell anyone except her immediate relatives or take any time off. She became “hysterical” at the notion of getting out of bed in the morning during the worst point of the 14-month span.
Sarah was offered a 10-week leave from Corrie in a completely separate situation. And it was at this point that Hilda, her mother, decided to intervene.
Sarah Lancashire has always been intriguing to watch whether on screen or off the screen. She has this aura that everyone quickly gets captivated by.

She did not seriously consider the performing arts until she was 18 years old. Lancashire discovered her passion for performing after obtaining a seat at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
She graduated in 1986, calling her time as a student there “amazing” yet “very difficult and daunting.”
