The 41-year-old actor has played Rob Donovan in two separate stints on the cobbles and he insists he would "never say never" to making a comeback as the show means a lot to him, however, he doesn't want to spend too long "waiting for a call".

In an interview with Star magazine, he said: "I've already been back twice, so never say never. The show will always have a special place in my heart, but I can't spend my life waiting for a call."

As for keeping in contact with his 'Corrie' co-stars, he is in touch with many of the friends he made on the ITV soap but admits it can be difficult due to everyone's hectic schedules.

He said: "We're at opposite ends of the country so it's hard. They work ridiculous hours up there and I have my life in London, but I'm still in touch with Kate Ford, Chris Gascoyne and Alison King."

Marc's alter ego Rob infamously attacked Michelle Keegan's character Tina Mclntyre leading to her death and in his second appearance he was a prisoner on the run from jail.

He can currently be seen in new zombie movie 'Redcon-1', which follows a squad of Special Forces soldiers who are assigned a suicide mission to rescue a scientist from a city ruled by the undead.

Although Marc - who plays the family man with a dark past who causes the zombie outbreak - doesn't deliberately look for darker roles he does enjoy playing those types of characters and he particularly liked doing the physical stunts on his latest project.

He said: "I love doing the physical stuff. It adds another dimension to the job and breaks the norm of just saying words all the time."
