Bill Fellows is currently best known for playing the role of Stu Carpenter, having joined Coronation Street in 2021.

On screen, Stu hasn’t had an easy life having done time in prison and having spent part of his years homeless.

However, actor Bill’s life away from the cobbles is rather impressive and much more glamorous than Stu’s.

Bill Fellows has a famous acting son

It seems that Bill’s not the only actor in his family as his son is also famous for his talents.

Bill’s son Dylan Reeves-Fellows is also a famous actor, having starred in productions such as Breaking Point and French Connections.

He also has his own YouTube channel which is titled Life with Dylan, which Bill has previously promoted on his own Instagram page.

Dylan’s acting career looks to be going well, as Bill posted a photo on social media of them both together, captioning it: “The day has finally come…. My son is paying for dinner.”

Dylan has starred in movies including Blood Curse II: Asmodeus Rises, and short film Someone Like You.
