Brenda Blethyn talks about playing Vera on hit ITV show
Villa star Kenny Doughty has paid an emotional tribute to his late colleague Mark Allen.
Mark, who worked on the ITV series for eight years, suffered complications from coronavirus earlier this year and tragically passed away in April.
As the final episode of the latest series Vera wrapped up Sunday night, actor Kenny, who played the character Aiden Healey, paid his respects on social media.
Kenny tweeted “Peace Friend,” while the rest of the cast paid tribute to their former art department colleagues on social media.
“Thank you for the lovely message,” Kenny wrote. “Wonderful ep and great cast and direction @cebohon1.
“A lot of respect for our staff. Especially Mark Allen – who has unfortunately passed away.
“Will miss his laughter and his flash. Peaceful friends. Now a fan of Vera – you’ll see the next 4 eps in 2022! Until then X.” (sic)

“Will miss you guys, well done by all involved. A great show. I’ll be a little free on Sundays.”
Another tweeted: “Absolutely fantastic episode, such great writing, directing and acting – so sad to hear of Mark Allen for all of you.
