Graham Haberfield


Graham Haberfield

Graham Haberfield (17 November 1941 – 18 October 1975) was a northern actor. Born in Chesterfield, the son of a railway porter, he was educated at Herbett Strutt Grammar School, Belper. Later, he joined the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, from where he graduated in 1962.

The same year, at the age of 20, he joined the cast of "Coronation Street" as Jerry Booth, a character who appeared between 1962–1964, 1965–1968 and 1971–1975. His sporadic appearances allowed him to try other work and avoid being typecast. He did varied stage and television work, but is best remembered as Jerry Booth and as Winston, the die-hard Manchester City fan in the hit Granada Television sitcom "The Dustbinmen".
