Award-winning actress Suranne Jones is currently wowing viewers on screen once again as DCI Amy Silva in the brilliant BBC One drama Vigil.

But while she’s been a familiar face since her days on Coronation Street, many TV viewers and fans have been shocked to discover that Suranne isn’t actually her real name.

In fact, the 43 year old actress, who has starred in shows like Gentleman Jack and Doctor Foster, was Christened under the moniker Sarah-Anne, but later changed her name in honour of her great-grandmother when she started out in her acting career.

Speaking about her decision, Suranne explained that when she went to register as an actress, Sarah-Anne had already been taken – so her dad offered his thoughts.
